GIVE WHAT IS NEEDED TO THOSE MOST IN NEED
Provide Now is a 501(c)(3) that aims to provide an ethical and effective solution for online giving.
100% of your donation is used to purchase physical items for local Seattle nonprofits.
1. CHOOSE A CAMPAIGN
Provide Now currently represents the needs of seven nonprofit organizations within Washington state. Click here to browse our campaigns.
2. DONATE ANY AMOUNT
Each campaign will offer suggested amounts for various items, but these are only suggestions! Any amount helps.
3. WE TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING ELSE
We shop as local as possible and buy in bulk while coordinating procurement, storage, and delivery for the nonprofits we assist.
GIVE WHERE IT MATTERS MOST
Provide Now represents the needs of those experiencing homelessness, students, and animals.
Gigi and Alex met at the University of Washington in 2009 where they quickly became friends. Ten years later Provide Now was founded as a passion project in order to solve two problems in the modern philanthropic world:
Online donation platforms are often for-profit and rarely transparent about how donor dollars are spent.
Gifts-in-Kind (physical item donations) are a large administrative overhead for nonprofits. Gift registries like Amazon Wishlist do not allow for bulk delivery nor do they coordinate shipment arrivals, resulting in sporadic and ineffective donation fulfillment.
With the United States in lockdown, Provide Now offers donors a secure, transparent, socially distanced method for donating to local nonprofits. And our nonprofit organizations receive a seamless fulfillment experience.
