When you donate a gift in honor of someone, we'll help you create a free honor card after your donation is complete. It's a great way to let your family and friends know about the impact of the gift you made in their name.
How will my gift be delivered?
We offer two options. You can choose to have a PDF card emailed to you; you can then print out the PDF and deliver the card yourself. Or, you can choose to email an ecard to your recipient directly.
Does my gift card purchase qualify for matching funds?
Yes! When a matching gift opportunity is available, your donation through the purchase of a gift card will be matched by the matching funds. The matching funds do not increase the value of the gift card. The value of the gift card will be equal to the amount of your actual charitable contribution. However, your donation — and the gift selected by the recipient of your gift card — will have greater impact due to any matching funds that are available at the time of your purchase.
How can the gift card be used?
When the gift card is redeemed, your recipient will be provided with the rewarding experience of selecting a life-changing animal from the Heifer Gift Catalog. The majority of Heifer animals are available for redemption. The recipient also has the opportunity to learn more about Heifer's work and the positive impact these gifts make on the lives of families around the world.
Is this a good gift for children?
Absolutely! The gift card online redemption experience is engaging for any age. Through our optional interactive story, children can learn about how they can make a difference with this gift. Selecting an animal from Heifer's Gift Catalog is an excellent family bonding activity.
Is my purchase of a gift card tax deductible?
Yes, by purchasing a gift card, you are making a donation to Heifer International. Heifer International is a 501 (c) 3 organization, and donations made by U.S. residents are tax deductible as allowed by law. We issue tax receipts for gifts of $10 or more. You should consult your tax professional for specific advice.
Will I be notified when my gift is redeemed?
Yes, you will receive a confirmation email when your recipient redeems their gift card.
