GIVIT Listed Ltd connects those who have with those who need, in a safe and private way. Through the GIVIT website, trusted Australian organisations are able to request exactly what is needed by their clients. These requests are listed here, where everyday Australians can donate in response. Alternatively, donors can pledge items for donation into our online warehouse which is a private online portal where registered organisations can see and reserve what’s available.

When a need is matched to a donation, the GIVIT portal sends an email to exchange contact details between the donor and the organisation where they can both liaise to arrange a delivery option. Once the charity receives the item, it is privately passed onto the recipient. The donor and recipient never meet as, above all, GIVIT aims to preserve the dignity and privacy of people accessing support.
