Give Gift via Gift Cards
Taco Bell in California bought 2,000 gift cards to reward their exemplary employee behavior. Employees redeem the cards by making gifts to their favorite nonprofit. You can buy cards, which are usually 100 percent tax deductible, from DonorsChoose, OneOC, and others. As a reward or to express gratitude, purchase cards for your employees, customer, or friends. You’ll empower others to be philanthropic heroes and avoid needing to pick a favorite nonprofit.
