Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Philanthropy, Public Foundations

Mission: Our mission is to provide a unique and affordable way for individuals and businesses to support millions of charities and local communities, with a customizable charity gift card for any occasion. We all know those generic gifts you feel you “have to” buy. The bottle of wine for the dinner host. Or the bouquet of flowers as a thank you. And the birthday gift for dad, the guy who has everything. But, what if there was another way? A better way to gift. Last year, Americans spent over 1 trillion dollars on gifts. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Valentine’s Day alone accounted for over 50 billion dollars of that. None of this money goes to the charitable organizations that work so hard to make your life and the lives of your family and your community better. Plus, material gifts are taxed. The total cost of a Donors Unite charity gift card is 100% tax deductible. One charity gift card can truly make a difference. But together, we have the potential to provide a vast new source of revenue for all charities, especially the small, local organizations that do the heavy lifting in every community. Our goal is simple: add Donors Unite to the equation. Consider replacing one bottle of wine, one bouquet of flowers, one generic gift card with a charity gift card. This small shift in mindset, as individuals, and as businesses, can help us give the #GIFTSTHATKEEPONGIVING.

For the first time ever I received a gift card from Donors Unite. What a great gift idea to give someone for their birthday, anniversary, or special occasion! It was super easy to use and a fabulous way for me to contribute to one of my favorite charities.
Many times I'm at a loss as to what to give someone who has everything. Now I found a new way to give a gift that allows someone to contribute to their favorite charity as opposed to one that I'm passionate about. I'm definitely going to use this as a gift for my family and friends and will recommend it to others! Thanks for coming up with a great idea!

I received a Donors Unite gift card from my brother as a birthday gift! He sent the gift card to me via a beautiful and colorful Donors Unite birthday email, which could not have been easier or faster to use! I clicked on the link, entered my claim code and the name of my desired charity, and in one more click the donation was made! There are many occasions we receive generic gifts from good-intentioned and loving friends and family members who struggle to send us something meaningful and significant. I can't think of a better gift than a donation to a worthy charity! We all want to make a difference in our world and a gift card through Donors Unite allows us to choose a charity of personal significance and share in the work they do. I highly encourage everyone to send Donors Unite gift cards to their loved ones for every occasion. Thanks to the generosity of my brother, I was able to help others ~ such a gratifying feeling. It truly is the gift that keeps on giving! Thank you Donors Unite for such a creative and unique way to gift us all with the ability to improve the lives of others!

Donors Unite is such a great idea....so many gift occasions lend themselves well to giving a gift of charity.....give when you are visiting someone's home for dinner or a visit, give the gift cards out to your company's employees or your clients, get your company to consider "adopting" a third grade class at a local school, and give each student a "gift" that they can direct to a charity that they select, thus practicing philanthropy most likely for the first time......One very good thing is that the gift card that you give does not have to designate the charitable beneficiary...that can be left to the person getting the gift....and they go to the Donors Unite site to choose...how good is that....lots of traffic to a site that is all about giving....hopefully Donors Unite will go viral among generous givers!

I just had major heart surgery done on May 7. A number of my friends sent me Donors Unite charity gift cards. I can't explain how good it made me feel. The surgery sort of came out of the blue and it has had an immense impact on me and what I feel is important. These cards expressed their concern and love for me and it enabled me to give back a little. There is nothing material I need and in my opinion there would be no better way to express your love for someone than by use of a Donors Unite charity gift card

I was away on vacation when my sister in-laws aunt passed away and instead of sending the typical flowers to the funeral home, we sent a DU gift card. She was so appreciative as she was able to find a nonprofit that fit her aunts passion and spirit of life - a school for children with disabilities. Thank you DU for enabling me to give a meaningful gift that continues to give to others :)

Received a gift card as part of our baby registry, and was happy to use it to contribute to a cause that I very much believe in. The Donors Unite platform is simple and straight forward to use, and is a welcome departure from the traditional landscape of gift cards focused on "stuff."

My very generous uncle sent me a Donors Unite gift card via email as part of my college graduation gift. It is such a creative and unique gift idea and is also enormously gratifying to receive as it benefits the donor, recipient, and charity! What better way to contribute to making a difference in the world! Their appealing website is awesome and intuitive. I look forward to using Donors Unite to send gifts to friends and family so we can all pay it forward!

I used Donors Unite for the first time this month to get graduation gifts for several high school seniors as well as a new office opening for a law firm. What I liked most was the ability to set up my own account on DonorsUnite.org, establish a wallet with a set amount of money, and then buy individual charity gift cards with personalized messages from me. You can also buy gift cards without establishing a wallet with funds in it simply by using a credit card. My recipients loved the gifts which they were able to choose a Charity of their choice with which to donate the gift. And with over 1.5 million charities from which to choose they were able to choose by Name, Zip Code or State. Really convenient and a great way to give where you live.

I received an emailed gift card from a friend and was wowed by the concept! Thanks to my friend who funded the donation, I was able to select a charity of my choice to receive the donation! What a lovely way to be honored, thanked or memorialized! The website was very easy to use and I'm looking forward to sending my own gift cards to friends, family, colleagues and teachers! Great idea DonorsUnite!

I had such a great experience with Donors Unite! I have emailed gift cards as a memorial for a loved one, as a retirement gift for a colleague and a thank you gift to a friend who invited us for dinner! The expressions of thanks from each of the recipients was amazing! And the best part was that the charity of their choice was the beneficiary of my funded donation! The mobile site is user friendly and easy to navigate! I also ordered a pack of 10 personalized gift cards that I keep on hand to give to friends and family and colleagues when the opportunity presents itself! Donors unite has a winning idea that gives pleasure to the donor, recipient and the selected charity! WIN, WIN!
