Where do my donations go?
What can I donate?
Givingmas uses monetary and tangible donations to support sponsored families throughout the year. While monetary donations are most effective, we also accept donations in the form of tangible items like grocery store, gas, restaurant, and department store gift cards.

How does Givingmas find qualifying families?
There are a number of ways families and individuals come to our attention and are nominated. They can be nominated on our website, through civic organizations, employers, government agencies, or institutions of faith.
Are there any nominee requirements?
Can I nominate someone?
Great question! If you'd like to nominate a family or individual in need, visit our 'Nominate a Family' page and complete the form.
Can you explain the nomination process?
Absolutely! For nominees who meet the requirements listed in the question above, the nomination process is as follows:
The nominated family is reviewed by a panel of Givingmas ambassadors and final approval and selection is made by the Givingmas Board.
The nominating parties will be interviewed only in the event that their nominated family is chosen for further consideration (no interviews will take place prior to approval).
The interview process will provide the Givingmas team with information about how they can best assist and help the selected family with near-term and immediate needs.
Once selected, approved, and interviewed, Givingmas will provide support to the family for the following 12 months, as well as long-term mentorship, to positively impact the rest of their lives.
