Why Non-profits Love Us Back to Top

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

    I love what you guys do! How did you get started?

    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.
