Make your gifts matter this season with a giving card

Jean Eick
Special to the Bonanza

As we begin the season of giving, the Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation invites you to make all of your gifts matter with a Parasol Giving Card.

Giving Cards are much like retail gift cards, but with a charitable twist. When your recipient redeems their card online, they simply select the charity they would like to support — anywhere in the US.

Giving Cards are available in values of $25, $50, $75 and $100, but the real value is far greater than any other gift you give during the giving season or at any time of the year.

By purchasing a Giving Card for someone, you are creating a culture of giving and sharing the gratification that only comes from helping others. Each Giving Card you purchase is completely tax deductible.

Giving cards are available not only to celebrate the holidays, the winter season and of course Tahoe, but also many other occasions. You select a design to match your gift — Thank You, Happy Birthday, Congratulations and more.

Businesses may also want to take advantage of our custom Giving Cards program as they make wonderful gifts for clients, employees or business partners. The recipient can select to support any 501(c)3 public charity, school or faith-based organization in good standing in the country.
