You’ve seen charitable gift guides before, prompting you to participate by buying a bed net, a goat for a family, or a water well for a village. They are often quite memorable, and provide donors with a very clear understanding of where their money is going. They also offer the opportunity to honour a loved one with a unique, thoughtful gift. For a charity of any size, an online gift guide is easy and cost-effective to set up. They allow you to easily showcase your gifts while offering donors the convenience of hassle-free online shopping. The key to success is in how you package, launch and promote it! For tips and ideas on launching and promoting a charitable gift guide, download our free white paper.
