Nonprofit Wish Lists

By Ashley Mouldon, YNPN Seattle Board of Directors Co-Chair

You have probably already started to receive them: year-end appeal letters in your mailbox and colorful emails with success stories from the past 12 months. That’s right – it’s that time of year: the season of giving. And for nonprofits, this is usually when the bulk of donations come through the door; giving them the last extra push they need.

However, you don’t always have to give a monetary gift to your favorite nonprofits during the holiday season. Many local organizations have set up Amazon Wishlists to capture products they would most likely benefit from receiving.  Take a look at a few of them below:

Now that you have an idea of wishlist items nonprofits are looking for, don’t be shy and reach out to your favorite organizations and ask what they would like for the holidays.  Chances are, they will be able to give you specific ideas of items that will allow them to continue their mission and serving our communities.
