Zealous Good has been an incredible partner. Tuesday's Child has received new classroom activities, refurnished our entire office and much of our parent training room, and really improved our silent auctions. The donations we have received have transformed our organization.
Brandon M. Combs, Tuesday's Child, Executive Director
Zealous Good assists me by being the bridge to donors. In a time when financial contributions are limited, organizations are relying more on the generosity of the community. Zealous Good and their friendly staff remind us that we are all a part of the community and donations of all shape and size can assist an organization.
William Guardia, Teen Living programs, Community Engagement Specialist
We rely heavily on the donation of quality items for our participants & their children. Zealous Good has been a constant source of amazing donations - and the best part is the helpfulness of the staff & the way the work to help us find just the right items for our families!

In the world of non-profits, the most over-used phrase is “do more with less.” Not only are resources scarce but the competition for them is fierce. The items made available through Zealous Good are nothing short of a godsend! Every dime saved from opportunities made available from their website is money spent on service to our clients who also directly benefit from these donations. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

Zealous Good has been super helpful for ArtReach. The connections that ZG makes are a win-win, allowing people to get rid of things they no longer need, while making it affordable for us to furnish our office, find interesting recycled supplies, and keep the costs of providing innovative art programming low for those who are most in need. Thanks so much, Zealous Good!
Karen Reyes, Executive Director, ArtReach at Lillstreet
Office supplies, office/home furniture, household items, electronics, computers, and clothing. While these are some of the most frequent donations, we do have over 20 donation categories so that non-profits are able to be matched to their more specific needs. Do you want to start requesting items today?
The donor selects their delivery method when submitting the donation. They can choose to drop it off or have it picked up. Non-profits are able see this information prior to requesting the item so they can plan accordingly.
Yes! We’ve been able to match well over $1MOne Million Dollars in in-kind donations to over 400 non-profits. You can see for yourself which non-profits are already involved here.
Non-profits are only responsible for providing tax receipts only if one was requested by the donor. We’ll send a reminder with the pertinent information if the donor requests a tax receipt. Click here to see the steps of writing a tax-receipt.
It can really vary depending on each week. We receive donations every day. As of summer 2014, on busy days we’ll receive 40+ donations and 10+ on slow days. Depending on their location and type, your non-profit may or may not be notified of the donations. However, you can always see all the available donations on our page of available donations.
As a non-profit, it is completely free to set up a profile on our website and to start receiving emails about available donations based on your indicated areas of need. Or, you can sign up for a plan right away! Once you do want to start requesting donations, you must select a membership plan, outlined here.
Currently, Zealous Good operates in Chicagoland and Dallas. If you love us and want us to come to your city, please let us know here!
Zealous Good was started because of the growing volume of in-kind donations and the inefficiency by which they were being donated. We realized that donors wanted to know who needed their items, non-profits wanted it to be easier to find things they need, and technology could be a great resource and connector.
