Why give products to In Kind Direct?

Why donate products to In Kind Direct?

Charities and not-for-profit organisations need your help. Tightening budgets make it harder than ever to afford high quality products, from clothing to cleaning materials. But donating products is not just another way to help a charity. It’s an established, successful way of giving that works for your company and communities alike.

Give products with peace of mind

Our vetting and monitoring procedures give you control over where your products end up. All donations are tracked so we can ensure your goods will only be used for charitable purposes and won’t turn up on market stalls, in charity shops or online.

Be a better neighbour

High impact help

Reaching individual charities and arranging donations is time consuming and complex. With In Kind Direct, you can reach thousands of charities – and millions of people – all through one point of contact.

Share your surplus

Stock that’s surplus to your company could get you a small return from a liquidator, or become your way of giving something back. In Kind Direct offers you a quick way to clear products from your warehouse, giving them to those in need.

Protecting your donations

We know it matters where your products are going. After all, that’s exactly why you don’t want to send them to landfill, or sell them on for a few pence in the pound. That’s why we’ve put together a complete monitoring programme for secure donations. So you can give with confidence.

Putting your surplus products to good use

When we talk about putting your products to good use, that doesn't mean selling it on. It simply means giving them to genuine charities who will use them, or give them for free to people in need. Every charity in our network agrees to our detailed terms and conditions to reflect that.

 

A relationship based on trust

If you’re about to donate products to us, we think it’s the least we can do to ensure your products are put to good and proper use. We vet the legitimacy of charities registering with us and have in place a monitoring policy to ensure that your products are used for charitable purposes. We will report back on where your products end up. If you need more visibility or control, we can also limit the distribution of products to the UK or overseas. There really is every reason to give.
