This holiday season, give a gift that gives back – and more! 

With Gifts of Hope, you can find unique gifts for everyone on your list, and help change the lives of children around the world. It’s true – you can give a life-changing gift, like school essentials and clean water for families that help empower people and communities with the resources to break the cycle of poverty. 

And best of all, your gift can have double, triple or up to 9x the impact if you give a matched gift! This year, 84% of Gifts of Hope are matched for greater impact! 

How matched giving works

With a matched gift, your donation will be matched with a donation by a government, foundation or organizational partner, giving more children the gift of hope, helping more families live better lives, and transforming more communities. 

For example, if you give the gift of Girl Power for $100, our partners will match the value of that gift 8x or $800, for a total value of $900! 

Our top 3 matched gifts

  • End HIV, TB and malaria – Matched 9x, our highest match ever!

    The goal is big, bold, audacious – and it’s possible. Help end HIV, tuberculosis and malaria infections around the world by 2030. Provide awareness, prevention and treatment to save lives and stop these illnesses cold.

  • Food basket – Matched 9x!

    Filled with staples like beans, cooking oil, fortified cereal blends and sugar – this gift of food for thousands of pregnant women, mothers and young children under five who are malnourished is a critical step to prevent a slide into a life-and-death situation and instead restore children to health. Basket by basket, you’ll be saving lives.

  • Girl power – Matched 8x for a value of $900!

    Unleash the power in every girl by offering nourishment, education and protection. Help girls avoid the fate of early and unsafe marriages, gain access to economic opportunities and enjoy gender equality. Honour the girls on your list with the gift of girl power.
