Gifts for Good is a one-stop-shop for all business gifting needs, and the first online corporate gifting company to focus solely on bringing social impact products into the industry. Whether it’s for clients, employees, events or special occasions, they aim to provide meaningful gifts to better connect with your audience, all while making the world a better place.
The organization was founded by Laura Hertz and Jerry Eisenberg who met while obtaining their Master’s in Social Entrepreneurship from USC’s Marshall School of Business. While working in the nonprofit space, they saw that most nonprofits rely heavily on donations and grants. While many of them were making and selling their own products to better sustain themselves, they lacked the resources necessary to reach a greater audience and grow their impact.
Additionally, while working in the corporate world, they saw how commonplace it was for companies to give gifts to their employees and clients. However, most of these gifts were just throwaways and ended up in a junk drawer. They were never meaningful or thoughtful, just cheesy, novelty products with a corporate logo on it. Laura and Jerry decided to start Gifts for Good to address these two problems, and create impact in the world through the business-gifting budget.
The online shop and corporate-gifting service provides organizations with a range of quality product options, many customizable to include your organization’s logo, exclusively from nonprofits or social enterprises. The platform also allows users to shop by cause, categorizing gifts into the impact areas they serve. This way, you can be sure your purchase is going toward a cause you care about.
If you’re having trouble choosing or don’t have the time to shop, their free gifting concierge makes recommendations based on your organization’s price needs, cause preferences and other factors. This process saves businesses the time of searching to find the perfect gift, and leaves them with a social impact report that shares the good that is happening in the world through their purchases. This allows Gifts for Good to close the loop on how a purchase helps a cause.
As they continue to grow, they will add new categories and customization offerings. Currently their gifts support six main causes including children-in-need, economic development, environment, homelessness, health and women-at-risk. Find their products in the SEA Holiday Gift Guide, or visit their website to shop by cause.
From Gifts for Good: “As a company born out of the pursuit of social enterprise, and a company that only curates and sells premium products produced by nonprofits or social enterprises, joining SEA was an easy decision. As the largest and most well-known organization serving the social enterprise community, we are thrilled to become members and connect with other like-minded organizations to make the world a better place.”
