How GIVIT started

GIVIT was founded in 2009 by Juliette Wright OAM. As Juliette’s baby son grew quickly, she struggled to find a local charity that needed her unused, good-quality baby clothing.

She discovered that while many charities were overloaded with unrequested or poor-quality goods, there were essential items they desperately needed, such as sanity products for women escaping domestic violence, or steel-capped work boots to help unemployed dads get work.

Juliette knew there had to be a smarter way to give. And so, GIVIT was born!

How GIVIT works

GIVIT's online donation platform connects support organisations with generous donors. Organisations place requests on GIVIT for items, vouchers or services to meet the needs of the people they're supporting. Donors can then then give items, money or their time to meet those needs.

Person in need connects with local council or support organisations registered with GIVIT. Support organisation or council checks givit.org.au for available donations or requests a specific item or service. Public or corporate donor browses what's needed and donates items, funds or services via givit.org.au. Support organisation works with donor to get donation where it needs to go. Person in need received doanted item/service.
