Nonprofits and charities are always in need of donations, but sometimes people are not able or willing to give money. In these cases, in-kind gifts can be just as helpful. In-kind gifts are donated items that the organization can use to further its mission. They can be anything from office supplies to vehicles to clothing. Many times, people will declutter their homes and donate items they no longer need or want. These items can be put to good use by a non-profit, and it helps to clear out space in your home. If you have items that you would like to donate, check with your local non-profit to see if they require any specific items. In-kind gifts are a great way to help out your community without spending any money.
