There are many opportunities to give back in thoughtful and responsible ways. See below for ways to give back during this holiday season. 

Ways to Give Back During the Holidays


Alternative Ways to Support Nonprofits this Holiday Season

  • Doing a Secret Santa or other gift exchange? Ask for, or give, the gift of charity instead. Tell your coworkers or family you’d like a monetary donation in your name for a favorite cause.

  • Make or buy treats as a thank you for nonprofit staff. Contact your favorite agency that provides a much-needed service and offer to give small gifts or gift cards to their employees.

  • Create a culture of giving within your family this holiday season. Click here for a Holiday Philanthropy Guide. The Community Foundation for a greater Richmond is here to help you learn about establishing a fund or  joining a giving circle.
