About Gifts for Humanity


A Pair of Websites

ChangingThePresent.org and GiftsForHumanity.org help nonprofits capture some of the half-a-trillion dollars Americans spend each year on birthday, wedding, and holiday presents.


We do do it by making the experience of a donation, which is given in a friend's name, feel like a rewarding present and a nice alternative to buying yet more merchandise.

  • Two Ways to Attract New Funding
  • Sign up and submit your content once, and appear on both:
  • Changing The Present
  • The New York Times called it, "an Amazon.com of the nonprofit world." The site offers thousands of charitable gift opportunities (preserve an acre of the rain forest, fund an hour of cancer research, etc.) from hundreds of leading nonprofits. Register now so you can be seen by all our visitors.


  • Gifts For Humanity
  • Gifts for Humanity provides your nonprofit or school with its own private gift site so you can capture money supporters normally spend on presents, without exposing them to other nonprofits.


Learn more about how both sites work.



  • Pricing
  • Sign up now and register as many as forty gifts at no cost. Learn more.
