Our Mission is to provide socially conscious shoppers with a marketplace of goods created and produced by charities, with all profit returning to the charity to support their work.
How it works:
Any 501c(3) charity can post merchandise on Charity Gift Market. The sign up process is quick and easy. It can be found here. After a purchase has been made, the individual charity(s) are notified to fulfill their orders. Charity Gift Market is a tool and service for nonprofits to utilize in promoting and selling their merchandise.
Why it works:
From a Charity's point of view:
There are many larger charities who already have an online store, however, the majority of their revenue is directed towards supporting the charity's main mission. Rarely can these organizations devote significant time and resources to marketing and expanding their exposure. At the same time, there are literally thousands of smaller charities who are making and selling products to promote their causes on a small-scale level and either have no online presence or very limited time and resources. Charity Gift Market fulfulls both of these needs by providing a free marketplace where products and charities can stand side-by-side, marketed and promoted for free.
From a shopper's standpoint:
Never before has there been a singular marketplace to access the variety of wonderful charitable products available. Have a certain gift in mind? Search by Product. Know of a charity you would like to support? Search by Charity. Are you connected to a cause that you would like to support? Search by Cause. Instead of tireless searching on the internet and jumping from site to site, Charity Gift Market brings everything to one spot for your shopping and supporting convenience.
