DonateKart is one of its kind platform, which brings in a new layer of trust and transparency in the donations made to social organisations by delivering products directly to them instead of giving money. We have added these unique features on our platform where transparency is given utmost importance.
All the products that have been obtained during a campaign will be delivered at the end of the campaign. However if the organisation requests us, we can deliver the products before the end of the campaign as well.
DonateKart believes in need based donation and lists down the quantity of products that the organisations are in need of at that particular time. If any donations are made offline we can’t track those details and NGO will end up getting products which they would have already received on Donatekart. So we suggest donating products on DonateKart and later visit the organisation once these are delivered.
DonateKart offers various quality and price options to organisations and it is up to the organisation to choose which products they would like to list for their campaign.
DonateKart is a platform that only raises new and durable products. We only list high quality products for different campaigns on our website. There are other avenues through which second hand products can be delivered to the NGO's.
Unlike other platforms which charges more than 10-15% as commission, Donatekart is completely free for both Donors & NGOs. The platform discards traditional monetary donations and ensures that the NGOs get the products they need. This makes the donor rest assured that their donation has gone to the needy. The tracking service and the updates is what adds to the uniqueness of this platforms.
