“This fundraiser was so easy there’s no reason why anyone wouldn’t do it!” -Anna R.
Why partner with Giveit
Over 85% of our nations clothing end up in our landfills each year, thats 77 lbs per person or roughly two garbage bags! And that is just sad when there are so many in the U.S. and abroad that are in need and would benefit from receiving these items we just throw away.
Part of Giveit’s mission statement reads:
“CONNECT HAVES WITH HAVE NOTS BY PROVIDING AN EFFORTLESS WAY TO GET UNWANTED GOODS INTO THE HANDS OF THOSE IN NEED…AND REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF STUFF SENT TO LANDFILLS (WE ARN’T JUST SAVING THE LANDFILLS, WE ARE SAVING THE STUFF GOING IN THEM)”
We launched our free app in late 2015 to make donating used goods as easy as taking a picture and leaving it on your porch. Since then we have been exploring more ways to help accomplish our mission and that is where Giveit Fundraisers come in!
Why Clothing Drives?
Giveit Fundraisers isn’t just about helping your group raise money, its so much more. Unlike selling stuff clothing drives helps reduce waste in our nations landfills and gets those items to people in need. Giving kids the opportunity to gain a sense of community and social responsiblity as they come together to collect clothing donations. All donations are tax deductible (through our Giveit App) and go to those in need in developing countries.
- No Selling
- No Cost
- No Quotas
Who is this for?
Giveit Fundraisers are great for Schools and can be run in conjunction with other events and fundraisers such as carnivals – i.e. bring a bag of clothes and get a discount. We don’t stop there though other groups and organizations big and small can also benefit by running a clothing drive. Both non-profits and for-profit groups can benefit.
- School Groups (Bands, Sports, Hope Squads etc)
- Sports Teams
How does it work?
Once your school or group decides to do a clothing drive Giveit will work with you to set a the schedule. We will help with flyers and social media content to help promote the drive. You will promote throughout the duration and collect the donations in one or two central locations. At either the end of the drive or pre-determined dates throughout an ongoing drive Giveit will come and collect the donations, weigh them and pay you by the pound for them.
- Promote (Flyers, social media, word of mouth)
- Giveit Picks up, weighs it and pays you
CAN DONORS GET A TAX RECEIPT?
CAN THIS BE AN ONGOING FUNDRAISER?
Yes, however while it can be an ongoing we find that having a push and deadlines through the year that correspond with goals help drive the amount of donations that come in.
WHAT CAN I DONATE?
Any clothing, shoes, personal accessories, hats, sheets etc. Basically if its made out of cloth throw it in a bag and we will take it!
DOES IT HAVE TO BE IN A BAG?
No, but it sure makes carrying and loading much easier for everyone involved!
HOW OFTEN WILL YOU PICK UP?
We will work with your and your team to arrange pickups.
WHERE DO THE DONATIONS GO?
Approximately 25% go to help the local community and 75% are exported to developing countries around the world.
