This Holiday Season, Give Twice
Through our unique partnership with Gap, making a difference in the life of a child is as simple as buying a gift card.
The Gap Give Twice program creates a brighter future for women and youth worldwide. Gap has chosen Communities In Schools and CARE International as their nonprofit partners in this program. Gap customers are encouraged to buy a Gap GiftCard, with two percent of the face value of the card donated to Communities In Schools or CARE. Gap also commissioned a hand-selected group of artists and illustrators to create one-of-a-kind graphic designs for the gift card envelopes, and substantially increased the size of the packaging to make it feel more like a gift.
When ordering a Gap GiftCard online, scroll over the envelope design options to choose one that supports the work of Communities In Schools!

Across the Communities In Schools network, May and June mark the occasion to celebrate our seniors as they graduate and accept their coveted high school diplomas.
As I told the funders at the Center for Effective Philanthropy, real change will depend on a concerted effort by all of the players on the field -- philanthropies, government, and nonprofit leaders.
