Gifts for Good
Gifts and Experiences that Give Back

We are excited to share our 2021 Gifts for Good guide, a selection of socially conscious gifts and experiences curated by the Morgan Stanley Philanthropy Management Team.

The featured gifts benefit a range of philanthropic causes from education and health to arts and the environment, and represent companies and organizations that are both regionally and mission diverse, making their local communities, the nation, and ultimately the world, a better place.

In creating the guide, Philanthropy Management honors their mission of assisting clients in translating their personal values and family legacies into results-oriented, strategic giving programs in order to achieve their philanthropic goals. “We recognize that our clients want to maximize the impact of their giving and expect significant impact. The Gifts for Good guide is one of many resources we offer to meet this desire and create positive social change,” said Melanie Schnoll Begun, Managing Director and Head of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management’s Philanthropy Management group.

First published over ten years ago, the Gifts for Good guide continues to highlight charitable opportunities from nonprofit, for-profit and Certified B Corporations that have differentiated themselves by examining their missions from new angles and identifying innovative ways of achieving results. Whether you are providing meals to families struggling with food insecurity through Lasagna Love or helping protect wild animals through Sierra Club, we hope that philanthropic individuals and families can find inspiration by giving and receiving gifts with meaning this holiday season.
