How Does It Work?

 

DonationMatch is a matchmaking site that streamlines the in-kind donation and sponsorship process for nonprofit event leaders. You are invited to apply, and once your account is verified and approved, you'll be able to post your event in our system, get access to a donation catalog, and request items from businesses and brands whose criteria you meet. Asking for items becomes an enjoyable, shopping-like experience.

 
  • Single Application: One form gives you access to all partner companies whose criteria you meet

  • Request Items in Clicks: Browse your donation catalog and simply click to send requests.*

  • Added Visibility: Companies seeking events can find yours and offer you items, too! 

  • Variety: Donations range from amusement park and museum passes, retail gift certificates, product samples, travel packages, books, and more.

  • Partner Discounts: Get additional savings on silent auction software, event ticketing, and more from trusted partners in our Resource Directory.

  • Printable Certificates: Many certificates are e-delivered and available to print upon donor approval.

 

Our system is available for authorized representatives of registered charities, schools, and nonprofits in the U.S. and Canada to make up to 5 matches for FREE. Want more? Check out the benefits of upgrading.

 
 
 
The donation from Babyganics was a huge hit. It was very hot, and every [sunscreen] sample was passed out. We had hundreds, if not thousands, of kids. Some folks shared that Babyganics was the brand they used. Please thank them for us!

After volunteering for many charities for more than 10 years, I was grateful to have found DonationMatch. DonationMatch made it very easy to find a large number of raffle prizes in a very short amount of time while saving money on postage. Upgrading saved me many hours for each event. I can’t imagine putting on another fundraising event without DonationMatch’s upgraded service.
