Lancaster, PA Gifts That Give Hope Fair

About Us

 

 

Our Mission

To promote charitable, alternative giving through an annual gift fair that offers Lancaster-area residents an opportunity to give "giftable donations" in honor of their loved ones, friends, and associates. We inspire and encourage support for local and global nonprofit organizations that are helping to transform our world.

 

Who We Are

  • We are a nonprofit community organization that is a 100% volunteer-driven. 
  • We feature alternative gifts from 30 nonprofit organizations that address the many social causes. 
  • Each year, the Gift Fair draws people from our community and beyond for a joyful celebration of meaningful gift giving at the holidays.  
  • Since 2008, we have raised over $300,000 for nonprofits and social causes both locally and globally. 
  • To complement the alternative gifts, our marketplace offers fair trade and sustainable goods—directly from social enterprises and nonprofits.

 

What We Believe

  • We believe giving gifts of hope changes lives, one gift at a time. 

  • We believe our identity does not have to be in the things we buy, but in the people we help. 

  • We believe it’s our responsibility, as a collective humanity, to celebrate and promote the good work people and organizations are doing in our community and the world. 

  • We believe that curiosity is awakened and compassion is strengthened in people of all ages, faiths, and cultures as they discover ways they can make a difference. 

  • We are grateful for the abundant world we live in and we devote our resources and our time—to seeking dignity for all people, protecting our planet, and investing in the future we want. 

  • We believe that transformation within ourselves, our communities, and our world will only happen when we consciously make compassionate, mindful choices to give and serve one another.

In summary, we believe:—

Alternative giving changes lives, instills peace, shares joy, teaches compassion, shows gratitude…invites people of all ages to participate in helping their neighbors, close and far. An emotional journey of the senses…it moves people. They open their hearts and pockets. They help others feel good. They feel good.”—Gina D’ambrosio, a Gifts That Give Hope shopper and supporter.
