Alternative Gift Market

Do your Christmas shopping at the Alternative Gift Market

Do Your Christmas shopping at the Boise First UCC 2022 Alternative Gift Market

What is an Alternative Gift Market? This is a chance for you to give a monetary gift on behalf of another. So instead of giving Uncle John a pair of socks, he will receive a card that a donation was made in his name to a participating organization. This event offers alternative gift ideas outside of the usual retail items we spend money on every year.

This year’s event will be held after worship on Sunday, November 20th at 11am. A representative from each organization will be present to answer questions and provide information on the needed services they provide. Our recipients this year are:

Boise First UCC Reparations Fund

Leap Housing Solutions

Giraffe Laugh Early

Mano a Mano

Dravet Syndrome Foundation

How to Give

If you are unable to attend the market in-person, here is how you can give:

  1. Write a check to First Congregational United Church of Christ. In the memo of the check, designate which organization you would like to donate to. Checks can be mailed to: Boise First - 2201 W. Woodlawn Ave., Boise, ID 83702


  1. Donate on the church website and designate which charities you want to donate to. DONATE HERE

After the Market is completed, we will present a check to each charity for the amount given by the participants of the Market.

Thank you.
