What are Donation Drives?
In addition to our platform’s donation and fundraising campaigns functionality, we offer functionality for donation drives. Donation drives allow individuals and groups to donate new, unused or used items to those who really need them. For example, clothing, hand sanitizer, and canned food are all popular donation items that could keep people warm, safe, and fed. If your organization sets up a donation drive, you can match donations of items or collect donated goods to later disburse.
Determining the Needs of the community
The community is always in need of various resources that may be difficult to retrieve or fulfill. During a crisis or emergency, everything from pro bono sharing of skills to hand sanitizer become resources that organizations are hoping to receive. In order to determine community needs, GivePulse provides functionality allowing community partners and members to submit requests. These requests can then be reviewed by the organization or partner’s administrator to determine if and how they can be fulfilled.
When an administrator approves an item or need for the donation drive, the item can be marketed onto GivePulse in a list or photo gallery view. Individuals can then see and choose to fulfill these needs all from one page.
