Like e-gift cards, e-donations have become very popular because they are easier and cheaper to send, manage and track. Many charities and nonprofit organizations now offer a digital version of donations. Rybbon makes it easy to offer e-donation as a gift. When setting up your campaign, simply add e-donations to your gift selection. The recipient then has a choice to select a gift for themselves or select a charity to which they want to donate the gift amount.

 

Gift e-Donations for the Holidays and All Year Round

This year you are tasked with your company’s holiday gifting program again. Last year, you sent e-gift cards to all employees, customers and partners and brought smiles to everyone’s faces. This year, you can add e-donations to your gift selection. An e-donation can be even more thoughtful, kind and heartwarming.

E-donations are also versatile. You will want to use it all year round for survey or research incentives, webinar invitations and reward programs.

By gifting e-donations, you and your recipients will both be making a difference and giving back to the world. Whether it is improving the lives of people or the environment, an e-donation is a gift both you and your recipients can feel good about.

Here are 3 reasons why e-donations make a great business gift:

Show your customers and employees you care about causes and issues- When you gift e-donations to your customers and employees, it shows that you care about causes–whether it is finding a cure for cancer or supporting our national parks. E-donations will resonate well with your customers. After all, everyone can get behind clean water or cleaning up the environment. Accompany your gift with a personal message that explains how and why you chose this particular charity gift.

It’s perfect for the charity-minded recipient- E-donations are perfect for the charity-minded recipient who derives meaning and satisfaction from helping others. Your charity-minded recipient will feel they are making a positive impact and giving back to the community. Whether it is supporting medical research or building homes for families in need, an e-donation is a gift your recipient will feel good about.

It’s great for customers who are shy about accepting gifts- Do you have that one friend who is always shy about letting you pay for a cup of coffee? I know I do. Similarly, we all have a few customers who are shy about accepting gifts. In lieu of e-gifts, give these customers the ability to donate their gift with e-donations. Instead of feeling they are taking something from you, they’ll know that the e-donation is going directly to a good cause.

Rybbon allows you to setup a selection of e-donations and let your recipients select the charity of their choice.
