Giving Cards are special feature provided by SICF.  Giving Cards work similar to gift cards, except that the person that receives a Giving Card can choose what nonprofit to support.


Purchasing A Giving Card

  • Giving Cards can be purchased online or to avoid credit card fees, you can mail a check to SICF.  After your purchase you will be contacted by SICF to get information on if you want a digital card, or you would like one mailed to you.  To purchase a Giving Card now, please click the Blue button labeled “Purchase Giving Card”
  • Giving cards can also be personalized, with a name or graphic on the front of the card.  Please contact SICF for more information.


Using A Giving Card

  • If you have received a Giving Card, please click the Green button labeled “Use Giving Card”
  • You will be taken to a page with more than 100 charitable causes that you can choose from
  • Press the Donate button and then enter the amount that you want to donate.  You can select multiple nonprofits.
  • When you are ready to checkout, you will find a blue button that says “Pay with Giving Card”
  • You will then be required to enter the code from your Giving Card.
  • If  you don’t use the full amount, then you can come back and use the rest another time
