To make a donation;
If your school is interested in organizing an end of year donation of unwanted stationery items, we are happy to provide you with a ‘Give Write School Pack’ to help you promote the day and the importance of giving in the the community to students and parents. We can also arrange a suitable time to collect the items from your school and present you with a formal Certificate of Thanks for sharing with students.
We have several public collection points for donations. Look for the blue Give Write bins listed here
If you wish to organize a donation drive amongst friends, neighbours or your community group, we can arrange a ‘Give Write Donation Pack’ to be sent to you to help you get organized.
If your company has excess stationery that you would like to donate, we will be happy to arrange a collection. If required we are also happy to book a time to speak to your group and outline our purpose and our work.
Like to give something other than stationery?
Give Write relies on donations and volunteers and tries to maintain very low overheads. However, costs are still incurred for items such as transport, phones and storage materials and so cash donations to support the work we do are gratefully accepted.
