The Good We Do
longstanding success hinges on solid working relationships with 140 nonprofit partners
across the US, Canada, and Australia. Every time you donate reusable clothing and
household items either to them or directly to us at one of our stores via a Community
Donation Center, we pay them. Over the past 10 years, we’ve paid more than $1.5
billion! That’s pure sustainable funding that supports their programs and
services in your communities and beyond.
Why we do it
Partnering with local nonprofits is not a byproduct of our business—it's how
we do business. Our principles of giving back and providing opportunities are values
we were founded on and are values we still embrace today.
How it Works
Our nonprofit partners contact people in the community like you to ask for donations
of reusable clothing and household items.
We then pay our nonprofit partners based on the number of boxes and bags of merchandise
they deliver to us. Additionally, we also pay them for donations our customers deliver
directly to our stores via our Community Donation Centers.
From there, our staff sorts through the donations to select the highest quality
reusable items then prices and displays them.
Customers enjoy the best selection of merchandise of any thrift store in the world.
Donors feel great about making a difference. And nonprofits get reliable funding
for their programs that benefit your local community. What a great way to pay it
