Shift My Gift launched in August 2011, offering people a way to celebrate any occasion - birthday, baby shower, wedding, graduation, new home, the sun rising - by rerouting money that would have been spent on gifts to needy causes.

Shift My Gift is different from other site, such as Facebook's Causes in that it doesn't raise money.  It serves as a link between donors and foundations that rely on charitable giving.

Shift My Gift has a partnership with Guidestar, which maintains a national database of charitable foundations.  There are approximately 1.2 million registered organizations on Guidestar.

If already in the Guidestar database, nonprofit groups do not have to register with ShiftMyGift to qualify as a gift recipient. However, registering will enable them to create their own ShiftMyGift landing page on that website.

FIRST is one of the charities listed on the Shift My Gift website.

There are 4 easy steps to help FIRST:
