Holiday Giving

There are 2 ways to participate in our holiday giving program:

1. You can be matched with a personalized wish list for a family and you do the shopping - OR - 2. You can donate money and have HopeMatch volunteers shop.
Shop for a Family:
Click on the "Shop" button below to be directed to the information on shopping for a family this Christmas. You will be provided with a wish list in October or November and will shop for the family from that list. You will drop off the unwrapped gifts at our seasonal location between 12/10-12/18. Complete the commitment form at the bottom of the page so that you can be matched. We are already accepting commitments!
Click on the "Donate" button below and you
will go to the information page where you
can select what size family you would like
to help. You will "purchase" a package and
we will do the rest! You can be assured that
your gift will not go into a pot of money, but be matched with a specific family to help.

How do you know that the families you help are legitimately in need?
At HopeMatch, we go to great lengths to assure to the best of our ability that we are helping people who truly need the help and would not normally ask for help on their own.  Each nomination is screened and verified before we match it with a donor. 
Do you participate in Corporate Giving Matching Gift Programs?

Yes, we are already listed on many matching gifts lists with some of the major employers in the Charlotte area.  Check with your HR department to see if HopeMatch is on the list.  If it is not, please let your HR department know that you would like us added.  If you need any additional information from us, please let us know.  This is a great source of revenue for us to help families throughout the year!


I like to give to Christmas charities, but I often don’t know where my gift goes or who receives it.  How is HopeMatch different?

At HopeMatch, we strive to make your giving experience as personalized as possible.  We provide you with a list of items for the families so that you get items that will really make them feel special. We also give them a “thank you” card they can return to us to let you know what it meant to them to get the help.  We forward those cards in January, once they are received.


Is HopeMatch just a Christmas charity, or are there ways to partner with you year round?

HopeMatch started as a Christmas program, but has grown into so much more!  We are really looking for people to partner with us who believe in what we are doing to bring HOPE to our community.  It would help us tremendously if you would consider being a MONTHLY donor to HopeMatch.  Since HopeMatch is privately funded, it would help us take our mission to the next level.  It is easy to set up a MONTHLY donation here on our website.
