In-kind gifts are considered goods, services, or time, and they help us reduce our costs. Tangible goods include items like equipment & supplies, while intangible items include services such as advertising.
We appreciate every in-kind donation inquiry, and while they can greatly benefit our community, it’s important we are transparent about how facilitating such donations can be tricky.
The most challenging aspect of donating physical items is getting the items to our office in Steung Meanchey. Packages are frequently lost and the cost of shipping is very high. We are unable to cover the cost of shipping in-kind donations and we know expecting our supporters to cover these costs is asking a lot.
The best way to have your donation make the most impact is by making a monetary donation. It’s very likely we can arrange to purchase the items you’re interested in donating locally in Phnom Penh. This is a great way to increase your impact because:
Purchasing products in Phnom Penh stimulates the local economy and helps the country become less dependent on foreign imports and foreign aid
Money goes further in Cambodia- items are typically less expensive to purchase in Cambodia than many other countries, therefore we would be able to purchase more items that would be able to benefit more community members
You avoid high shipping costs
We would sincerely appreciate the opportunity to hear about what you were interested in donating and to answer any questions you might have. Please email Hem Len [email protected] for inquiry, contact, or shipping address information.
