Host a Charitable Wedding to Benefit Save the Children

I Do Foundation Logo

The I Do Foundation was created in 2002 by a group of nonprofit leaders dedicated to developing new avenues of support for charitable organizations. A public foundation based in Washington, D.C., the I Do Foundation works closely with some of the most effective and renowned nonprofit organizations in the country. Together with their corporate and nonprofit partners, the I Do Foundation links engaged couples with a host of charitable giving options at their wedding.

The trend of charitable weddings — celebrations where couples incorporate their socially conscious values into their wedding planning — has exploded over the past few years. As a leading voice for charitable weddings, more than 10% of engaged couples visit the I Do Foundation each year to learn how they can personalize their weddings by giving back to the charity of their choice.

As the nation's first wedding-focused nonprofit foundation, the I Do Foundation has two primary goals. First, the I Do Foundation helps couples raise donations for the charity of their choice. Second, the I Do Foundation is working to change the culture of weddings so that giving back becomes an accepted and expected part of weddings.

The I Do Foundation offers engaged couples a variety of free services. In addition to personalized wedding websites and comprehensive tips on socially-conscious weddings, the I Do Foundation helps couples raise donations for charity in a variety of ways:

  • Gift Registries that Give Back: Couples can create gift registries with major retail partners, and up to 8% of all gift spending is donated
  • Wedding Favors for Charity: In place of traditional favors, couples can make charitable donations to honor their guests
  • Donation Registry: When couples create a Donation Registry, they enable guests to make donations in lieu of gifts
  • Shopping for Change: Invitations, honeymoons, rings and more generate donations with each purchase

Save the Children has been selected as one of I Do Foundation's charitable beneficiaries.
