Ways to Give Back During the Holidays


Alternative Ways to Support Nonprofits this Holiday Season

  • Learn about how to align your values to organizations doing work in the Richmond region by attending a Civic Life Today event held virtually. Dates to come soon!

  • 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.
