6 Father’s Day charity gift ideas for Dad

Father’s Day is the one special day of the year where you get to celebrate and give thanks to your dad for all he has done for you.

Dads are special people who are there when you need them most. During our childhoods, fathers help us to learn, and make sure we feel safe, secure and loved. As adults, they are still on hand to provide support and guidance.

This Father’s Day there is no better way to show your appreciation than by giving your dad a gift that will truly change lives. Rather than gifting him another boring t-shirt or pair of socks, reciprocate his generous and loving nature by donating a charity gift from our range of Gifts for Good on his behalf. 

To help you choose the perfect gift, we have put together a list of six Father’s Day charity gift ideas that we think your dad will love!

1. Donate chickens to charity for dad

Chickens are a gift that keeps on giving to a family in poverty. The eggs a chicken lays will provide food for the family well into the future, and provide them with a steady income

Your dad never let you go hungry when you were growing up, let him do the same for a family in need this Father’s Day. 

2. Make dad a hero by donating a share of a deepwater borehole system

Clean water is essential for human survival. This Father’s Day you can offer Dad a gift that will last generations and help change the lives of a whole school – or even an entire community – thanks to gifting a share of a deepwater borehole system

Your Father’s Day gift could be combined with others to fund the drilling, construction and maintenance of a completely solar-powered, deepwater borehole system. This charity gift could bring change to children and families — and excess water can be sold to benefit the entire community and maintain the well. This is an investment that could improve lives for many years to come.

3. Help a child get to school with a bike and helmet

Learning how to ride a bike is something your dad might have helped you with as a child. A lot of patience and support is needed when teaching someone how to ride a bike, but the end results are amazing. Give the joy of cycling to another father and child living in poverty by donating a bike and helmet as a charity gift this Father’s Day. 

Many children in developing countries have to walk long lengths to get to school, sometimes through dangerous conditions. Your donated bike and helmet will help a child get to school quickly and safely. This child will be forever thankful for the impact your Father’s Day gift will have on their daily life. 

4. Give a hand washing station to a community in need for your dad

A handwashing station improves the hygiene of a whole community, which significantly reduces rates of disease. By teaching the community about hygiene and providing access to soap and toothbrushes, this facility allows them to stay clean and healthy. 

This will be a Father’s Day gift your dad will always remember, as he will be responsible for improving the health of a whole community in need, which is so important during the COVID-19 pandemic.

5. Let your dad help kids sleep safe and sound

Whether he tucked you in tight or scared the monsters from under the bed, Dad was always there to help make sure you felt safe each night before you fell asleep. Now your Dad can help vulnerable children around the world feel just as comfortable each night with a safe and sound bundle.

A simple charity gift of blankets and mosquito nets could keep children warm and safe from the threat of malaria-carrying mosquitoes. Now they can be ready to brave cold nights in winter with their new mattresses, pillows, and a pair of mosquito nets.

6. Let your dad change children’s lives by donating a school supplies set

Giving the gift of a school supplies set allows children to reach their full potential in the classroom. In developing countries, school supplies like pens, pencils and notebooks are unaffordable. This charity gift idea gives a student the essential items they need for a successful year of learning as well as the backpack to put them in.
