Consider making a good ol' fashioned Donation
This is the most impactful way to make a difference with SGBD. We can't do what we do without charitable donations from our incredible #SavvyGivers. The money we raise helps us help more families with children facing a medical crisis.

Host a Virtual Happy Hour via Social!
Cheers to SGBD! Many of our Savvy Givers stay in touch with friends in other states and countries via social media. If there's a friend you haven't seen or talked to in a while, 'buy' them the $ equivalent of a beer, glass of wine or cup of coffee and donate to SGBD in their honor. Be sure to tag them on social when you do, and challenge them to pass it on by 'buying' one for someone else! This is a great way to reconnect with friends from all over, and let them know about SGBD. When you make a donation, you can dedicate it to someone and leave a personal message.
Amazon Addicts rejoice!
Did you know that every time you shop with Amazon, you could be helping to raise money for Savvy Giving by Design? When you sign in to amazon via smile.amazon.com on your desktop or mobile phone browser you can choose a 501c3 nonprofit org. (Hint: Pick Savvy Giving by Design.) When you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products SGBD!
Better than Birthday Cards
Have a birthday coming up? Thanks to Facebook, you can dedicate your birthday to a nonprofit of your choice. On the day of your birthday, facebook will prompt you to dedicate your special day to one of over 750,000 501c3 orgs with registered facebook pages. We would love if you'd select SGBD as the recipient of your bday fundraiser!
Double your Impact with Corporate Donation Matching
Do you or your spouse work for a Corporation? Many business have corporate giving policies and many will match up to 100% of 501c3 charitable donations. As with most charitable giving, matched employee donations are often deductible for up to 10% of the company’s taxable annual income. Talk about a WIN-WIN! If you're making a donation to SGBD, ask your employer if they'd match by showing them your donation receipt and sharing our website with them.
At Savvy Giving by Design, we believe that every family with a child facing a medical crisis deserves beautiful spaces for healing, comfort and support. Our organization relies on the charitable donations of corporate sponsors, brands, and our growing community of #SavvyGivers to be able to help families in our San Diego community and throughout the nation.
