I’m new to the GIVIT website, how do I donate my items?
To donate, please go to http://www.givit.org.au/give-items and submit the relevant details of your item/s along with a corresponding photo. Once we have the information we need, the GIVIT team can list your donation offer on a private webpage for trusted charities to see and reserve.
You’ll receive an email containing the relevant charity’s contact details when your donation is reserved and you can then liaise directly with that charity to organise collection or delivery.
To donate towards a particular item request appearing on our website, click on the teal-coloured GIVIT button appearing next to it. Please complete the form that appears, then click GIVE ITEM.
When this happens, you’ll receive an automated email containing the requesting charity’s contact details. Likewise, they will receive your contact information and you can then liaise directly with them to organise donation collection or delivery.
Alternatively, you can have a look at active requests for items here - http://www.givit.org.au/items-needed. Simply narrow down the results by your postcode or the item you wish to donate.
Can you pick up my donation?
Please note that GIVIT’s role in matching donations doesn’t extend to transporting or storing items. When you list your donation offer via our website you will have the option to select “pick up”, that way the charity worker who reserves your donation will know they will need to collect it from your location.
