Gift for Life was founded in 1992 by a small group of gift industry professionals responding to the tragic loss of friends and colleagues as a result of AIDS. Since then, Gift for Life has raised more than $5M for AIDS research and education, and HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. In 2008, Gift for Life selected DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, one of the largest funders of HIV/AIDS service and education programs in the U.S., as its sole charity partner.FUNDRAISING EFFORTS
Proceeds from Gift for Life fundraising go directly to DIFFA and donations are tax deductible. Gift for Life takes a three-pronged approach to raising funds:
- Party for Life annual fundraiser, which features industry awards and silent auction.
- Industry events held in connection with trade shows across the U.S.
- Cause Marketing, which allows manufacturers to become involved with product or line donations.
Your support is critical! Nearly 40,000 new HIV infections are reported each year in the United States. Gift for Life proceeds benefit DIFFA's grant-making efforts.Read more..
