Last-Minute Gifts for Nonprofit Pros

Did the holidays creep up on you (again) this year? It seems like Giving Tuesday and the kickoff to year-end giving season just happened yesterday, and now December is more than halfway over. Maybe you’re struggling with shopping for last-minute gifts or even providing others with gift ideas for yourself. For the nonprofit professionals out there, we wanted to provide a handy gift guide and give you some suggestions. Last-minute shopping is sometimes inevitable, but here’s to eliminating the stress!

DOUGHP Cookie Dough

Most of us are aware of the ages-old argument about whether or not we should eat raw cookie dough. We have no intention of stirring tensions around that debate (especially not this close to the holidays!). Instead, we can offer a fantastic gift idea that will appeal to both sides of the divide. DOUGHP is a startup that sells custom, safe-to-eat cookie dough mixes. Feel free to bake them, or just dig in raw! In the spirit of the season, every purchase on DOUGHP goes toward helping recovering addicts and people who suffer from mental health issues. Find their gifts page here.

Educational Opportunities to Do More Good

An investment in education is always a good idea! Whether it’s a gift for a colleague or for yourself, consider a course sign-up or nonprofit membership subscription. These kinds of resources provide value while helping you invest in yourself and your cause.
