The Simple Gifts Foundation is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) charity that helps hard working people get through temporary financial difficulties with dignity and hope. We serve Columbus, OH and surrounding communities.
The Simple Gifts Foundation was created to help people who have consistently been financially independent, not requiring public assistance, but who through no fault of their own, have fallen on difficult times due to a temporary problem that places them in jeopardy. We are not a long term solution to chronic poverty. We expect our applicants to have a solid work history, but to need a one time gift to get them through a tough situation. If the vetting committee determines that the applicant’s financial difficulties are long term and that a one time gift will not solve the problem, the application will be denied.
