What is GIK?
Gifts-In-Kind (GIK) are new products donated primarily by businesses to
assist those in need. These products tend to be consumer items, rather than
industrial products, which may be available in the quantities needed by

agreement must be on file. There are three different agreement forms: a

A PARTICIPATING CHURCH
A Participating Church in the LOVE INC Network is one who has not done one or more of the three things a Partner Church does. LOVE INC may still refer people to the church and receive referrals
from the church.
