in-kind goods donated to GiveNkind since 10/1/18
For every $1 donated to GiveNkind, $97.14 in donated goods are connected through GiveNkind to nonprofit organizations.
At GiveNkind, our mission is to make giving more personal and purposeful. We do this by providing a searchable, online database that creates opportunities for individuals with items to donate to find, and directly connect with registered nonprofits that can repurpose those items for good within their community.
Make an impact.
We work to cultivate relationships that drive lasting positive impact in communities.
We believe that people want to do good. We continuously iterate and innovate on technology to make doing good accessible to all.
We operate with an understanding that local giving can have a long-term effect in strengthening our community.
As an all-volunteer organization, GiveNkind always needs volunteers! Our volunteers sort, categorize, and prepare donated goods for nonprofit pick up- but that is not all! View our volunteer page for more volunteer opportunities and to sign up!
GiveNkind accepts most items in good condition - everything from a single gently used item to pallets of new goods. Whether you are an individual or a corporation looking to place canceled, surplus, or trail run goods, we can help you make a purposeful donation.
Nonprofits- we have a special space for you! Register to share your wish list and to join our mailing list. We let you know when we get big lots and special items in!

Stories of Success
Homelessness takes many different forms. In the case of Edwin, it was about finding somewhere secure
to stay. To make a house a home, Edwin needed somewhere he could sit other than his bed. giveNkind
donor Alexandra was cleaning out her basement furniture when she connected with Connections for
the Homeless. With the help of giveNkind and corporate partner Gone Guys, the furniture was picked
up from Alexandra and delivered to Edwin’s new home.
