The Family Giving Tree is a nonprofit organization, based in California's San Francisco Bay Area, dedicated to fulfilling the Holiday wishes of children who would otherwise go without gifts.
The Giving Tree Holiday Program works with more than 250 Bay Area social service agencies. These agencies supply us with the names and wishes of the children they serve year-round. A wish card is printed for each child, detailing their age, gender, first name and their wish for a holiday gift.
Over 900 Bay Area companies and schools participate in the program by displaying the wish cards, often on trees, in their lobbies and other public areas. It is the generosity of employees that make this program a success. By selecting a wish card, employees pledge to purchase a gift for a child in need.
