Nonprofits wishing to apply to participate in the 2017 alternative gift fair should fill out the Nonprofit Application. We limit our nonprofits to 30 each year. 

How does it work?

Shoppers purchase gift donations in honor of friends and loved ones. You provide us with donation amounts (gifts) for specific purposes. We ask that you provide at least 3 gift donation items in various dollar amounts. From the three, our planning team will choose TWO. We always include an "open-ended" gift item donation to give to your organization in general. We reserve the right to edit.

Examples of Top Selling Gift Items over the years:

  • $5 Power Pack: contains enough food to feed a family of four for a weekend
  • $10 45 Life-Saving Meals that feed God's children hungry in mind, body and spirit
  • $10 Music lessons and performance opportunities for a child with incarcerated parent(s)
  • $20 Share of an alpaca or llama: Provides wool to sell, and manure to fertilize crops
  • $20 Hot meal for a military family 
  • $25 New Mama Kit: provides diapers, wipes and feminine hygiene products for to a new refugee mother
  • $50 One child, from newborn to age 5, is given a book for each clinic visit (approx 10-14 books)

A few tips:

  • Gifts between $5-$25 typically create the most sales. However, depending on the gift, nonprofits have had success with gift items priced $35-$75.
  • Gifts over $100 are not recommended, but if compelling enough, anything is possible!
