Celebrate the season of giving!
For more than 30 years, the Holiday Giving Tree program has connected nonprofit clients with groups and workplaces looking to purchase gifts and spread cheer for local children, adults, and seniors. United Way is proud to continue this tradition.
The Holiday Giving Tree is the perfect project to engage your employees or community group to make a difference this holiday season.
How it Works
- Nonprofit agencies submit client wishes to United Way. Gift recipients include seniors, people with disabilities, veterans, teens, and children. Each gift recipient can list up to three wishes.
- Groups and workplaces request to be matched with nonprofits whose clients are in need this holiday season. For each match, you receive a holiday gift tag with the name and three specific wishes. Depending on how many tags your organization requests, you may even be matched with more than one nonprofit. (Each request has a 15 gift tag minimum.)
- Recruit gift givers throughout your company or group to purchase requested gifts (suggested value $20-$25). Display tags and communicate the Holiday Giving Tree program benefits and share specific due dates of when gifts need to be purchased by.
- Contact the nonprofit agency immediately upon receiving your match to arrange and coordinate any additional details including due date for the gifts, gift delivery, and to inquire about any upcoming holiday programs you and your employees could attend.
