Adelante has been a community resource for nearly 40 years. As the organization celebrates this milestone anniversary, Adelante is poised to launch GiveABQ, a service that will positively impact non- proﬁts across New Mexico.
There are over 10,600 non- proﬁt organizations in New Mexico, offering over 48,000 jobs and $1.2 billion in payroll. Non-proﬁts are growing and helping our state, with $6.5 billion in annual revenues. The success of these organizations can be a key factor in New Mexico’s economy and improving the lives of everyone in the Land of Enchantment.
GiveABQ will improve collaboration between non- proﬁts to beneﬁt social service work in New Mexico and to make giving easier for all donors, too.
Start-up operational dollars are being provided through the PNM Fund and Adelante is working with other donors and partners to remodel the GiveABQ site, stock the facility, and get the program into operation in 2018.
Beneﬁts to Nonproﬁt Organizations
Managing in-kind donations – tangible gifts from individuals or businesses like furniture, dishes, bedding, and more — can be time consuming to manage and difﬁcult to match to organizational needs. Many non-proﬁts refuse to accept used items even if they are in good condition because of storage and handling costs. Even non- proﬁts managing donations well struggle with distributing items their organization doesn’t need at the time it is donated.
GiveABQ helps non-proﬁts by sharing resources like drivers, volunteers, and trucks, to lessen the work of handling donations. it will be a place where non-proﬁts can turn for ofﬁce furniture.
GiveABQ will also offer a one-stop solution to non-proﬁt case managers seeking resources for their clients who need assistive devices and/or household items or furnishings.
Beneﬁts to Donors
The primary goal of donors, is to ensure that their donations get to the organizations and people who truly need them.
And, though they are generous and caring, they’d like the process to be as painless as possible.
GiveABQ can support donors by pooling resources to offer quicker pick-up of items, and by sorting and displaying the donated items at one big place where multiple non-proﬁts and their clients can see them, select from them, and make use of them.
GiveABQ will be tracking the larger donations, such as furnishings, in an effort to better coordinate between donated inventory and non-proﬁt needs.
Adelante is a nonproﬁt organization that supports people with disabilities, seniors, and disadvantaged populations by providing employment, residential and day services, and other community resources.
GiveABQ is another resource Adelante can offer the community, and a great way to work in collaboration with area businesses and other non-proﬁts.
Positive Outcomes of Launching GiveABQ
- More efficient donation in-take, processing, and distribution to people and organizations in need in central New
- Greater collaboration between non- profit
- Less hassle for donors who want to give furniture or household items, but who are unsure which organization can use their in-kind donations
- Job creation for people with disabilities and disadvantaged populations
- Reduction in waste when items can be re-purposed and re-used
- A multiplied effect that ripples throughout the community as non- profits can utilize more funds for direct services instead of items needed or handling
