Citizen Action Team - Database of Resources
TechSoup Stock Faith-based nonprofits can register for free for TechSoup Stock and then be eligible for purchasing, at significantly discounted prices, donated software and other technology products that leading tech firms such as Microsoft make available to TechSoup.
National Cristina FoundationNational Cristina Foundation (NCF) accepts applications for free equipment from nonprofit organizations that are engaged in the education, rehabilitation, or training of people with disabilities, at-risk students, or economically disadvantaged persons.
Gifts In Kind The FASTEN team has gathered information about free and low-cost items that faith-based nonprofits may be able to access through a variety of organizations and associations. Gifts in Kind America is an organization for 501(c)(3) nonprofits. Donor organizations (e.g., companies) may donate office equipment and supplies including software, hardware, building materials, furniture, clothing, toys, medical equipment and supplies, personal care products and more. Gifts in Kind is the largest recipient of such donations, reporting $200 million worth of products distributed per year. To receive items through Gifts in Kind, nonprofits need to register with the agency. Registration is based on a sliding fee scale, starting at $125 for nonprofits with an annual budget less than $1 million
Excess Access ExcessAccess is an Internet database service matching donors and recipients that are in the same geographical area. It links specific companies’ donations with nearby nonprofits looking for such items. At times, donors have volunteered to drop-off or ship very small items to the nonprofit, but this is at the donor’s discretion. Nonprofits with a “wish list” pay an upfront, flat, $3 registration fee that gives them a 6-month subscription to the service. Nonprofits can update or edit their wish lists at any time. The most frequently donated items are office or home furniture, supplies, electronic equipment, and appliances. This service also receives donations of building supplies, medical supplies, seasonal items such as decorations, food, toys, and clothing.
Throw Place Throwplace.com is an online market where individuals, charities, nonprofits and businesses can exchange excess goods and surplus inventory free of charge. Nonprofits register on the site for free, then can browse donated items and their location. Nonprofits can take up to 5 items per month from the inventory for free; beyond five items, there is a $5 per item charge.
New Hope Construction A non-profit that helps design and assemble needed items for you to build a new structure - whether it's a house, a library or a new fire station, they can help!
