About

GiveNKind began as a local movement to help fulfill the needs of Chicagoland nonprofits by matching them with an individual with a specific donated item. Occasionally, GiveNKind received calls from businesses and distributors looking for placements for their excess goods. These calls increased over time, and GiveNKind responded. GiveNKind has evolved to solve large-scale resource issues while providing essential resources to thousands.

Today’s GiveNKind reflects our growing commitment to helping people and the environment to transform excess goods into community resources. In 2023, GiveNKind placed over 14 million dollars of resources with local nonprofits that uplift communities.
