The Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines will participate in Giving Tuesday #GivingTuesday on Dec. 3  through its Giving Cards program . The purchaser of a Giving Card receives a charitable tax deduction; the recipient can direct the value on the card to benefit any 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Since its inception in December 2011, more than $38,300 in gift cards have been purchased to support nonprofits nationwide. "Community members who have purchased Giving Cards tell us they enjoy giving it as a gift to children and grandchildren to pass on the importance of giving," said Community Foundation President Kristi Knous."It's also a great gift for the person who has everything."
