Medical Gift-In-Kind Valuation Project

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Free Wheelchair Mission



Summary: Through our Medical Gift-In-Kind program, Free Wheelchair Mission provides the communities we serve with essential medical supplies such as masks, gloves, needles, syringes, blankets, and much more, in addition to mobility-assistance devices and support, including wheelchairs, walkers, and canes. Through generous donations from medical suppliers in the United States, Free Wheelchair Mission donates gift-in-kind (GIK) medical supplies to distribution partners around the world.

As part of our due diligence, this project aims to check the accuracy of the pricing as provided by the respective suppliers. Accordingly, as we receive and distribute these supplies to those most in need, we aim to efficiently check the value of the medical, surgical, and pharmaceutical supplies and equipment. We are seeking the help of skilled volunteers who can help us research these items so that we can confirm the fair market value of each container of GIK supplies.



Essential Duties & Responsibilities: Under the advisement of Free Wheelchair Mission staff, volunteers will follow the training, written process, and procedures to research given items from GIK packing lists on pre-approved medical distributor websites. Once the volunteer feels the closest item (in terms of the supplier, model number, size, etc.) is found, the volunteer will record the required information to an online spreadsheet (Smartsheet). The volunteer will follow up with Free Wheelchair Mission staff on any irregularities or issues they find throughout the process.



Requirements: Volunteers will work remotely and must have access to their own computer with a reliable internet connection. Volunteers must be able to work independently and must be comfortable with researching and data entry. Knowledge or familiarity with medical terminology is required. Volunteers with experience in the following fields are preferred:

Skilled Clinical Medical Technicians

Medical Doctors, Surgeons, Nurses

Medical & Surgical Sales Professionals

Medical Procurement and Supply Chain Professionals

Medical, PT/OT Students



Time Commitment: Free Wheelchair Mission aims to distribute 8-12 containers of gift-in-kind medical supplies a year. We're looking for a team of volunteers who have flexibility in working on this project at different times throughout the year when we receive containers. On any given month, this project would require 20-25 volunteer service hours.
