Give in another's name Looking for a meaningful gift for a friend or family member? Make a donation in a loved one's name to a cause he or she is passionate about.
Make it interactive Or let your recipient choose the charity. At justgive.org you can purchase a gift certificate that the holder redeems by authorizing that the money be sent to any of 1 million nonprofits. At donorschoose.org you pick a teacher-submitted school project to fund.
Take the break Charitable donations that you make in someone else's name are deductible on your tax return. No reason your good deed shouldn't get a just reward.
