Give a gift card to someone in need

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. 

How it works


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


of unspent gift cards go to waste every year.

We're on a mission to change that.

100% of donations go toward people in need.

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

How to Donate By Mail

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.
