Charities to Save Money!

‘In Kind Direct’  redistributes usable products donated by some of the UK’s best known manufacturers and retailers to charities working in the UK and abroad.

They were founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1996 and are one of The Prince’s Charities, which is the largest multi-cause charitable enterprise in the United Kingdom.

Since foundation in 1996, they have redistributed £140 million in value of goods from over 1,000 companies. To date 7,500 voluntary and community organisations have received products, helping millions of people in need every year.

Sometimes companies have too much stock. Sometimes they find samples, cosmetically damaged (but usable) goods, or end of line items sitting on shelves, taking up valuable warehouse space.

Those products might not seem to be worth much, but they could mean everything to a small charity or not-for-profit organisation.

So they take the items a company no longer wants and redistribute them to charities. This helps companies clear valuable space and support their corporate responsibility goals, while helping charities by giving them a convenient source of the things they need to operate.

And, as a result, those products in the warehouse get their value back.

They stop being worthless.

Because to someone, they’re priceless.

Helping charities invest in people

With every pound that charities spend on essential supplies and running costs, there’s less to spend on services.

Since 1996, In Kind Direct has redistributed hundreds of millions of pounds worth of goods. They have received product donations from over 1,000 companies and delivered them to over 7,500 organisations.

But what really matters are the charities they work with, who get everything they need to function – while saving on average over £5,000 a year.

So they can spend more of their money on support, not supplies.
