Description of charity's activities and outcomes
GIVIT is a national not-for-profit organisation matching public and corporate generosity with genuine need. As at December 2019, GIVIT supports more than 2,900 charity and community groups across Australia, ensuring they have the items needed for the people they support. 1,452,141 items have already been received by impoverished Australians since GIVIT was established in 2009.

Through its website givit.org.au, charities request essential, quality items for their clients. GIVIT matches requests received with items donated by generous public and corporate donors, ensuring our most vulnerable residents receive exactly what they need, when they need it the most. Founded in Queensland, GIVIT has offices in Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, Darwin and a dedicated Drought Manager in Orange NSW, and provides a free service for community organisations and charities Australia wide.

GIVIT’s 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 especially following large emergencies.

During times of disaster and emergency, GIVIT works in partnership with the Queensland, Australian Capital Territory Governments, and Local Government in Western Australia, and to support local councils, recovery agencies and community services to manage all offers of goods and services. Donors are encouraged to pledge their donations online and GIVIT matches these offers with the immediate and long term needs of people impacted by the event.

GIVIT also manages financial appeals on behalf of the government where 100% of funds received are used to purchase items to assist people to get back on their feet. GIVIT is committed, wherever possible, to purchase from local suppliers in order to assist in the economic recovery of affected communities.
