People across the country are being hit hard by COVID-19, as local economies grind to a halt. We’re donating gift cards to those who are hurting the most. You can help.
Generous donors send gift cards or cash donations of any amount to Gift Card Bank
People and families in need of a little extra help can apply for support by filling out a simple questionnaire
We validate need and send gift cards to those who have been most affected by COVID-19
All kinds! We graciously accept any gift cards, even with low balances less than $5. We can bundle multiple small gift cards from various donors together before distributing to recipients. The families who need support most often request:
Before donating your card, make sure it does not say "Can only be redeemed by presenting the physical card in person." If the physical gift card is necessary, you can mail it to us.
We know that the COVID-19 crisis has dealt tough blows to people from all walks of life. In these unprecedented times, we are here to help.
Anyone can apply to receive support from Gift Card Bank. We will review the circumstances of financial hardship on an individual basis. We do not have explicit rules around income level or employment status.
Please note that Gift Card Bank is only able to support requests in the United States at this time.
Don't have a gift card to donate but still want to give? You can donate cash and we will convert 100% of your donation into gift card balances to distribute through our platform.
Gift Card Bank does not take any of the value of cash or gift cards that are donated. Not a penny. Learn more about the organization
If your gift card can only be redeemed in person, please still consider donating! All you have to do is mail it us. Please include your full name, email address, and the gift card amount (if you know it) along with the physical gift card.
