“Our agency, Hopeworks, has been working with GiveABQ since 2018. GiveABQ has helped to supply Hopeworks’ individuals and families with furniture upon exiting homelessness. When housing a person or a family who has been living on the streets or in a homeless shelter, it is incredibly important to set them up for success in their new home. This includes creating a warm, welcoming environment with furniture and housewares. GiveABQ has been instrumental in allowing our clients to pick out items of their liking and furnish their new homes. We truly believe that it helps individuals and families retain their housing if they move into a furnished home. It gives clients the dignity and respect they deserve. “
Greg Morris, Co-Executive Director
Can individuals access GiveABQ Donations?
A: Individuals can only come to GiveABQ to access donated items by scheduling time and coming with a case manager or staff member from a participating nonprofit.
Are there any other fees for nonprofits?
A: Social service nonprofits do not have to pay fees to participate in GiveABQ. There is an annual fee for other types of nonprofits who need office furniture. If they meet our basic requirements, nonprofits are given an initial set of GiveCoins to get items. If they need more items, they can get more GiveCoin through contributions of volunteer time, donated items, or financial gifts.
GiveABQ does charge fees for deliveries or pickups for nonprofits, but organizations can choose to use their own resources and avoid these fees.
Can organizations sell the items they’ve received through GiveABQ?
A: No. The items received through GiveABQ are intended to be directly used by the nonprofit that requests them, for either their own operation or for one or more of their clients. The items are not meant to be sold. Donors intend them to be used by a nonprofit and, by and large, that is what we expect to happen.
How does GiveABQ ensure fair distribution of inventory?
A: With the GiveCoins system, GiveABQ will track how much each organization receives and be able to compare it to other organizations. This will also help donors see where their donations were used, how many people benefited, and allow GiveABQ to provide feedback to donors about the value of their investments.
