Welcome to the Simply the Basics Nonprofit Marketplace - your online home for nonprofits to request any in-kind items you are most in need of from the community, and for members of the community to easily share anything you receive that you do not need for others to select!
Organizations are frequently receiving in-kind donations, and people are always looking for places to donate what they longer need. Oftentimes, however, the items donated are not necessarily needed by the organizations they are donated to. For example, a well intentioned individual might want to give unused soaps and socks to a nonprofit, but that nonprofit may have already received 100 too many socks. Reversely, a nonprofit may find themselves in desperate need of socks and unsure where to begin finding one to be donated.
We developed the Nonprofit Marketplace because we know first hand how difficult it can be to secure items for programs and clients at the time you need them most. The Nonprofit Marketplace is a place where individuals or communities can list anything they would like to donate and nonprofits can simply search to find what they are looking for. Anyone can list items to donate, but only a registered nonprofit can access contact information to coordinate receiving. All items are listed for free, no money will be exchanged, and every donor has the guarantee that their donation is going to an organization that will really benefit!
The Marketplace is currently in Beta Testing!
The Nonprofit Marketplace is a work in progress, so we appreciate your patience as well as your feedback as we improve the system and grow in users.
To get started, please visit The Nonprofit Marketplace and register as either a Nonprofit 501c3 or an Individual Giver and begin posting some of the items that you need for your programs. It is that simple!
Because this is a new system, it might take some time for someone to reply to your listing, thank you for your patience. Want to help us share the services more quickly and increase the likelihood that your post will have a response? Share The Nonprofit Marketplace on social media with your community and tag "Simply the Basics" on Facebook, we will repost to our page for added awareness and greater likelihood that you will get a response - as well as help promote your programs!
Thank you for joining our community - we value your partnership!
