Nordstrom donating 1% of gift card sales to non-profits


Seattle -- Nordstrom announced it is donating one percent of every gift card sale to local nonprofits in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada.

"When a customer buys a gift card this Mother's Day and beyond, we hope they'll feel good knowing that the gift they're giving is a part of Nordstrom helping some great non-profit organizations do amazing things for their communities,” said Jamie Nordstrom, president of stores for Nordstrom.

The retailer will use funds from gift card sales to support two giving programs: Nordstrom-directed corporate contributions and a newly-launched employee charitable match program. Each year for the last 40-plus years, hundreds of organizations (from thousands that apply) are selected to receive cash grants from Nordstrom. Though the company supports a variety of programs and organizations, it primarily focuses its giving on efforts aimed at taking care of kids and empowering youth.

Nordstrom’s employee charitable match program will provide employees who have been at the company for one year with $5,000 annually to match their personal donations to qualified non-profit organizations.
