Lawrence GiveBack strives to do what it can to encourage people to buy locally to build up our tax base to help pay for the services provided by our community’s charitable organizations. However, the program works even more directly than that; it offers GB participants the opportunity to select their favorite charitable organization and each time they make a purchase at a GB merchant, it produces an automatic contribution to the organization they selected. Every donation is based upon a percentage of each purchase they make within the GB network of businesses. You can find information about each merchant’s designated donation percentage on the Terms & Conditions page.
Since its inception, Lawrence GiveBack has generated over $200,000 for the below organizations.

Coopers Cause Foundation
When you support Cooper’s Cause Foundation, you are helping families that have health insurance but do not qualify for many of the programs designed to aid in the unexpected and substantial financial burden related to pediatric heart conditions even after the insurance payments. You will be supporting the average family who desperately needs a hand up in ensuring their little fighters receive the medical care they so desperately deserve.

Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen
The purpose of L.I.N.K., the Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen, is to provide a pleasant, safe place for the hungry or lonely to share a free, nutritious meal and the companionship of one another. We believe loneliness can be as painful as hunger, companionship as powerful as love. Anyone who desires a meal is served, no questions asked. Diners are treated as our invited guests.

Lawrence Police Department personnel will deliver the wrapped gifts to the children and their families the week before Christmas.
