About GiftsToGive

GiftsToGive is building a new currency for philanthropy. We do it by building a more caring community, focused on local child poverty, literacy, service to others and giving. We call it “Tangible Philanthropy and Big Citizenship.”

At first glance, GiftsToGive is a former golf ball factory turned philanthropy factory. Thousands of young workers process tons of  donated children’s gear which is inspected, cleaned, organized, re-purposed and then gifted to thousands of local children in-need.

But wait – there’s more! Our primary mission is to give all SouthCoast young people – the privileged and the struggling – an opportunity to practice Big Citizenship and Tangible Philanthropy through their gifts of time and treasure. Young people  come to understand, through their “doing”, the power of giving and service and that we all have gifts to give.

Watch (above) our CEO and Founder Jim Stevens tell the (2011) story of GiftsToGive, and introduce us to the students and adults who are among our key volunteer team. Jim also talks about a shared vision to connect a generation of young people to something bigger than themselves.
