Gift For Life
Gift for Life was founded in 1992 by a small group of gift industry professionals responding to the tragic loss of friends and colleagues as a result of AIDS. Since then, Gift for Life has raised more than $5M for AIDS research and education, and HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment. In 2008, Gift for Life selected DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, one of the largest funders of HIV/AIDS service and education programs in the U.S., as its sole charity partner.
Our own Matt Katzenson, CEO and founder of Fine Lines, is the acting Vice Chairman of Gift for Life's Board of Directors.
Proceeds from Gift for Life fundraising go directly to DIFFA and donations are tax deductible. Gift for Life takes a three-pronged approach to raising funds:
Party for Life annual fundraiser, which features industry awards and silent auction.
Industry events held in connection with trade shows across the U.S.
Cause Marketing, which allows manufacturers to become involved with product or line donations.
