Alternative Gifts International
WITH OUR PARTNERS
We work to maintain excellent relationships with our partner organzations over the years. Our partners often recommend us to other organizations as an excellent way to reach our empathatic and passionate donors. Every year, new and old organizations alike submit project proposals framed around addressing a critical need in one of our causes. We evaluate their nonprofit, project proposal and fiscal practices to make sure our donors are only giving to trustworthy programs. The most vital projects are selected and featured on our website, catalog, and news streams for ONE YEAR. Partners may resubmit the same project or new ones the following year. The short term length lets us bring new projects to our donors while still staying on the forefront of the everchanging tide of international aid.
WITH OUR GIVERS
None of this would be possible without our givers. Some love the curated quality of our yearly catalog; some love being able "to gift" unusual and meaningful projects to their nearest and dearest. Either way, your commitment to alternative giving helps change the world. Each year, you choose from our selection of projects that reflect changing global needs. Your gifts are REAL, tangible gifts. If you give a bike, someone receives one. We take 10% of funds raised to keep our mission going: to curate the best projects around the world and bring them to you.
