How it Works
Benevolist.org simplifies and speeds up the item donation process and helps to increase the number of donors for all your charitable item collection drives. Build your Benevolist by working with our merchant partners to easily create a wish list of items for your next donation drive. Share the link to the list with your donor network and they’ll be off and running - purchasing the items that you’ve specifically chosen and getting them delivered to your desired location!
You’ll be amazed at how Benevolist.org helps make your work so much easier and more efficient. And your donors will love contributing to the success of all your charitable donation drives.

Frequently Asked Questions
There is absolutely no cost to use Benevolist.org, either as an Organizer or as a Donor (shopper).
Benevolist.org does not collect any credit card information. Shoppers navigate directly to the merchant website once they select an item or items that they’d like to purchase from the Benevolist. They will pay for the items through their own account on the merchant website. If they don’t already have an account, they may need to set one up or shop as a guest, depending on the merchant.
The Organizer relies on you to tell them. This is done by easily navigating back to the Benevolist (either directly or from the link in the confirmation email we send), where you’ll be guided to report the items and quantities that you’ve purchased. This is an important step that really helps out your donation drive Organizer, so you don’t want to skip it!
Every Organizer has access to an easy-to-navigate dashboard that gives you real-time updates on the number of items purchased for your drives based on shopper reporting. This will save you time and effort in keeping track of what has been collected already and what items still need to be collected in order to completely fulfill your Benevolist.
