A Guide to Giving

Last Updated on Tuesday, December 07, 2010

As 2010 wraps up, many people will decide how they will make a final contribution to their favorite nonprofit organizations before the calendar year ends. Giving can provide hope and bring peace during an often otherwise hectic season. There are a number of ways to give – and not all of them financial. The gift of your time is valuable and appreciated.

You can take the time to give to the Preeclampsia Foundation the gift of a review. GreatNonprofits has partnered with GuideStar, the leading source of nonprofit information, to launch the “Donate A Review Campaign.” Guidestar serves a wide audience including grantmakers, government officials, academic researchers, and the media.

Whether you're a volunteer, donor, Board member, survivor or family member you can share how your life has been impacted by the Foundation. By taking a few minutes to tell your story, you can help raise awareness and reach new donors and supporters. A review does not need to be extensive. Even a couple of sentences will provide a powerful testimonial. Share your review today!

For those who like to gather with others this time of year, it’s not too late to host a holiday fundraiser. While baking your usual goodies, why not bake an extra batch? Wrap the treats in a bow, attach a tag that includes the Foundation’s website, and sell at a December meeting or group gathering! Organize a gift-wrapping or craft table at church, school, or local shop.

If you’re like millions of people, you search the internet every day. Next time, use www.GoodSearch.com to raise easy money for the Preeclampsia Foundation. GoodSearch donates about a penny per search to charities named by its users, so make sure you designate the Preeclampsia Foundation before you search. Multiply daily usage by thousands, and the pennies really pile up. In fact, the Preeclampsia Foundation recently earned almost $200 thanks to smart online searching by our supporters.

Please join us this holiday season by using www.GoodShop.com to do your online shopping. Fifteen hundred stores, from Amazon to Staples, have teamed up with GoodShop and will donate a percentage of virtually every purchase to our cause. These merchants are also now posting thousands of money-saving coupons and free shipping deals on GoodShop.com. You're already shopping at these stores this season; turn your shopping into a painless fundraiser for preeclampsia research and education!

And, for those who are able to make a difference through a financial contribution, you can donate here, knowing your gift will be used to directly support programs and services that drive our mission forward and save lives.
