About GiveNkind and BEcause

GiveNkind is a Chicago-based nonprofit organization dedicated to re-imagining giving, maximizing 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. giveNkind also conducts donation drives of new and gently used items and works with businesses with trial run, surplus, canceled, and abandoned new goods to donate. Our 30+ nonprofit partners across Chicagoland receive much needed items free of cost and give donors a meaningful way to re-purpose their items to impact their community.


BEcause is a marketplace for 501c3 nonprofit partners of the giveNkind community.  Nonprofits sell their unique items here and proceeds go to support their local community programs.  A portion of each sale goes to giveNkind, also a 501c3, to support their online platform which connect nonprofits and donors, allowing donors to repurpose gently used items to the charities that need them the most.  So shop with a clear conscience!  Your purchase will give you a unique product that shows your support of the nonprofit community while also giving funds to support a number of nonprofits!

To learn more about giveNkind, and repurpose your unused new and gently used items, please visit giveNkind.org.

GiveNkind collects items year-round. If you have new or used items to give, are interested in adopting a wish list, sponsor a donation drop location, or volunteer with us to connect with donors and nonprofits, please reach out to contact@givenkind.org.
