Meet giveNkind

GiveNkind is a Chicago-based nonprofit organization dedicated to re-imagining giving to maximize the impact of a charitable gift for both donors and nonprofits. Through our free site, registered nonprofits can post their in-kind, material wish lists. Donors can also post items they have to give, making the site searchable for both donors and nonprofits.

The two connect directly, allowing nonprofits to receive much needed items free of cost and giving donors a meaningful way and tax deduction to re-purpose their items and impact their community.


Chicago Rises and giveNkind share the same belief that by working together, people can make a lasting positive impact on our community.

Together we want to highlight the work of exceptional organizations that are serving others. We hope that you find inspiration, can connect with and support giveNkind nonprofit partners.
