GIVIT: Goods for good causes

13 July 2017

GIVIT is a national not-for-profit connecting those who have with those who need, in a private and safe way.

GIVIT works to alleviate poverty in Australia by ensuring every community service provider has what it needs through the simple act of giving. GIVIT is free to use and makes giving easy by allowing you to see exactly what is required by vulnerable community members.

GIVIT supports all agencies, services and charities in Australia who work directly with impoverished, marginalised and vulnerable people. GIVIT makes it easier for organisations to empower their clients and improve quality of life by obtaining the items they require through the website, at no cost. The unique virtual warehouse eliminates the need for organisations to store, sort and dispose of unwanted items, saving valuable time and resources.

How GIVIT Works

GIVIT connects those who have with those who need, in a safe and private way. Through GIVIT’s website,trusted Australian charities are able to request exactly what is needed by their clients. These requests are listed here, where every day Australians can donate in response. Alternatively, donors can pledge their offer of donated items into our virtual warehouse. Details of this offer will be lodged online for all local charities to see.

When a need is matched to a donation, the GIVIT portal sends an email to exchange contact details between the donor and the charity. Then, the charity and donor agree between themselves on a delivery option. Once the charity receives the item, it is privately passed on to the recipient. The donor and recipient never meet as, above all, GIVIT aims to preserve the dignity and privacy of people accessing support.
