Change the Balance is a non-profit organization whose vision is to capture abandoned gift card balances - estimated to be nearly $8 billion per year - and channel them to charity.


TowerGroup, a world leading research and consulting firm focused on the global financial services industry, sited that gift-card sales in 2008 were in excess of $88.0 billion.

One nearly unavoidable situation with gift cards is that after a purchase is made for an item that is less than the face value of the gift-card, there is often a remaining balance.

Whether this balance is small or substantial, the reality is that quite often this becomes simply lost money to a consumer. In fact there was nearly $8 billion in abandoned cash on the gift cards purchased in 2008.

Our Vision

The vision of Change the Balance is to help capture these abandoned gift card balances and channel them to charitable causes at unparalleled levels.
