Donor-Fueled Web Communities

GivingSomeThing is an Online Platform Getting Goods to Nonprofits

— October 2, 2012 — Social Good
GivingSomeThing is a Boston-based social enterprise that serves as an online donation platform that connects donors and nonprofits. Founded in 2011, GivingSomeThing enables individuals to send nonprofits real good that they actually need.

Fee-free for donors and nonprofits, GivingSomeThing is a platform that allows nonprofit members to post a list of the specific items they need for operational purposes. The items are sent to the nonprofit easily and helps build relationships between individual members of the community and the nonprofits that serve them.

Once a donor has placed an item in their Give Basket, they can checkout with their credit card and Amazon ships the item to the nonprofit.
