Our Mission / Objective

GIVIT is a national not-for-profit connecting those who have with those who need, in a private and safe way. GIVIT’s vision is to ensure quality goods get to where they are needed most by safely connecting and inspiring an online network of givers. Through GIVIT’s website, more than 1,450 trusted Australian charities are supported as quality urgently needed items are sourced direct from the public. Since it was established in 2009, more than 500,000 urgent requests for goods and services from these charities have been matched with the resources of community and corporate donors.

GIVIT makes it easier for charities to empower their clients and improve quality of life by obtaining the items they require, online and at no cost. A registered not-for-profit, GIVIT is a FREE service available to all agencies, services and charities in Australia working directly with impoverished, marginalised and vulnerable people. The unique virtual warehouse eliminates the need for charities and government agencies to store, sort and dispose of unwanted items, saving valuable time and resources. There are no unsolicited donations or warehousing requirements, which can present a major administrative and financial burden.

Above all, GIVIT aims to preserve the dignity and promote the well-being of GIVIT recipients. GIVIT strictly adheres to the Privacy Act 1988, and ensures the anonymity of the recipients is preserved.

Projects in Progress

GIVIT works to alleviate poverty in Australia by ensuring every charity has what it needs through the simple act of giving. There are currently more than 2.5 million people living below the Australian poverty line (Australian Council of Social Service Poverty Report 2014).

How to help us

General Donations

GIVIT makes giving easy via its free online giving portal www.givit.org.au, enabling everyday Australians to see exactly what items are required by vulnerable members of their local community. Somewhere in Australia, there is a pair of unwanted work boots which could help a father secure work to support his family, a reliable washing machine that will allow a single mother the time to apply for work instead of washing clothes by hand and a bed which could provide someone the chance to live in their own home.

GIVIT operates with very low operational overheads and is predominately staffed by volunteers, enabling 100% of financial donations to be spent on urgently needed items. To see what is needed in your local community or donate simply visit www.givit.org.au.
