Team up to do more good. That’s the simple idea behind the launch of Good360’s new online giving portal—GivingPlace360.
GivingPlace360 enables nonprofit organizations, companies and individual donors to come together in one place to see what goods are needed by nonprofits and have those needs met by companies and individuals. GivingPlace360 allows donors to track the impact of their gifts in real time, providing tangible feedback and data about how their donations are making a difference.
GivingPlace360 provides benefits to companies of all sizes as well as nonprofit organizations and individual donors. Here’s how:
- Companies are enabled to make a significant philanthropic impact with their goods and receive real-time data about the impact of their giving.
- Individuals can now support their favorite nonprofits and causes and watch the impact of their dollars at work in real time.
- Nonprofits will receive the goods they need to support their communities, engage their supporters to help with delivery costs and submit impact stories that are visible to donors.
“It’s incredibly important to bring our partners together so they can witness the good they are doing as a network,” said Good360 President and CEO Cindy Hallberlin. “With the launch of Good360’s GivingPlace360, we aim to scale the incredible impact we are already making with our partners by expanding our distribution of donated goods from $300 million to $1 billion annually.”
As part of the launch event, Good360 Board Chair Carly Fiorina and staff will distribute donated products in New York City at a shelter run jointly by B’nai Jeshurun and the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew on March 30th.
In addition, Good360 is inviting their network of 40,000 nonprofits to create their first nonprofit “Wishlists”, visible at http://www.good360.org
Good360 works to connect companies and individuals with more than 40,000 nonprofit organizations. This platform helps pair the types of goods that a company has to offer with the appropriate nonprofit in need of that specific good. The organization’s Australian affiliate, Good360 Australia, launched its GivingPlace360 platform today as well.
The GivingPlace360 platform has been made possible thanks to support from UPS, HP, 3M, and The Knight Foundation, among others.
Good360 (Good360.org) connects companies who have products with nonprofits who need them. Since 1983, Good360 has distributed more than $8 billion in donated goods around the world, helping our network of 40,000 prequalified nonprofits strengthen communities and improve the lives of millions of people in need. In 2014 alone, we distributed four million diapers, 10,000 mattresses and 8,000 cartons of clothing, shoes and accessories to hundreds of thousands of people—and that’s just a fraction of what we do each year. Today, Good360 is expanding our impact around the world through new technology that makes giving even more efficient and effective. GivingPlace 360 — our innovative new platform — brings nonprofits, companies and individual supporters into a “Circle of Good,” allowing them to work together and do good, better. Later this year, Good360 will launch its newest technology platform—Disaster Recovery360—which will ensure that critically needed products are delivered to the right place at the right time during times of disaster.
