Gifts in Kind

Gifts in kind, also referred to as an “in-kind donation,” is a type of charitable giving where instead of giving money to buy needed goods and services, the goods and services themselves are given.

For the new ship, Marine Reach has many categories for gifts in kind: navigation equipment, engineering services, tools, materials for ship refit, medical supplies, reading glasses, kitchen equipment, marine paint, thinners, and tradesman (including welding fabricators, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and general labourers).

Listed here are specific ‘gifts in kind’ which can be a financial gift toward designated items or the actual items.
