Give where you live

The Foundation’s GiveNorthshore Card gives you an easy way to share your philanthropic spirit while strengthening our community. Cards can be given directly to any local nonprofit, mailed or dropped into a collection basket. You can buy the cards in denominations of $50 or $100 and present them to friends, colleagues, clients or family members. In turn, they can gift the cards to charities that are near and dear to them.

Simply click on the button to the right or mail a check to the NCF, and let us know the denominations you want and your return address. We will mail your GiveNorthshore cards or you can pick it up at our office and we will even wrap it for you, if you like.

Each card can benefit only one charity and expire 12 months after the issuance date, when their value becomes unrestricted assets of the Northshore Community Foundation. Stolen or lost cards will not be replaced.  Only the card purchaser may receive a charitable tax deduction for the full amount permitted by law.
