The new era of giving back

Don't restrict your charity's growth

You can now accept any form of donations with the help of charityBay. We have done the research and found that the majority of people want to help and donate but they may not necessarily have the money to do so.

Why we exist

The concept of charityBay started from living in an apartment in inner-city Melbourne. It felt as though every day, new people were coming and going, and in their wake left countless items being left on the nature strips and in the communal rubbish rooms to be taken to the landfill inevitably. A washing machine, a couch, an assortment of children's toys left in a cardboard box labelled 'free to a good home'.

But these items had worth - they still had life in them and would be perfect for someone else to use and love. And more surprisingly, they were belongings people were happy to part with for no monetary gain. So it got us thinking... What if we could somehow sell these items and create a new revenue stream for those who genuinely need it. Cold hard cash that could be used in any charity, for any cause; towards the personalised needs of those in need.

How it works

How it works


Users list the item or service they wish to donate & select their nominated charity to whom the proceeds will be sent.


At no cost to the donor, buyer or charity, the item is listed as a live auction on our website, mobile apps, Facebook shop & Google shopping. This ensures that the item is sold for what it is worth.


Once the item is sold, the nominated charity receives 95% of the selling price. The money is initially held in a secure holding account where payments are dispersed either monthly or $1000 whichever comes first.

What we do

Exclusive yet diverse

To ensure legitimacy and authenticity on the service, it is ONLY available for registered charities on the ACNC list.


charityBay operates as a not-for-profit organisation. We keep just 5% to pay for our operational costs.

Charity Portal

We provide a self-managed portal for charities where alterations can be made such as logos, descriptions, etc. As well as the ability to see analytics on how your charity is performing.


charityBay provides a seamless and automated invoicing service. It gives the donor a tax receipt on behalf of the charity, as well as an itemised revenue to the charity, highlighting where and whom the money has come from.

Similar to the 'Paypal' button we have all become accustomed to, charityBay will create a customised 'Donate Item' button for your webpage, emails, social media, etc. This allows your community to donate items right from your platforms. This 'Donate Item' button will link directly to charityBay - and from there, we take care of the rest. You then reap the rewards through instant payment straight back into your account!


You are not responsible for any stage within the sale process - that's what charityBay is here for. We want to find a new way to give back to those in need, and we believe the conversion from physical items into money, enables those who are not financially capable of giving back to your charity.
We estimate this has the potential to increase donations to your charity, in some cases, by up to 200%.

Would your donor get exposed to other charities?

No, we tailor your "Donate item" button to you. The donor is redirected to our platform, where YOUR charity is already selected as their charity of choice, without the option for them to change it.

If you are interested in working together to increase your donations, please submit your interest, and we will be in contact with you regarding the steps required to start your journey with charityBay! Contact Us

A platform like charityBay is a great partnership for SisterWorks in spreading awareness about our organisation. Any bit of money invested into SisterWorks goes a very long way for a locally based non-profit like us. Furthermore, the ethos of charityBay in promoting a sustainable cycle for unused items blends with the ethical model of our SisterWorks products. We believe in sustainability and making consumption more eco friendly.

Genius! A way for charities to be supported by making use of items that may otherwise go to waste, especially during social distancing.
