Lancaster, PA Gifts That Give Hope Fair

A recent survey by the national non-profit, the Center for a New American Dream, revealed that 70 percent of Americans would welcome holidays with less emphasis on material gift giving and spending!

Lancaster’s annual Alternative Gift Fair has raised over $175,000 for 50 different non-profit agencies in our community and around the world! We THANK everyone who made a purchase or volunteered time in some way to make the fair possible over the past 7 years!

2014 GTGH Participating Non-profit Organizations

Purchasing Alternative gifts is an opportunity to give back and MAKE A DIFFERENCE to the larger community and honor your friends and loved ones at the same time. Instead of purchasing traditional gifts, participants purchase meaningful donations to local and global non-profits while improving the lives of others who are not on anyone's gift list!! 

NEW this year, TASTE THE WORLD at the Lancaster Gift Fair! Have lunch around the world while you shop. Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door.  Order Tickets Here
