Request a Donation
**Donation requests for April 2014 are now open! **
SCRAP welcomes requests for donations of used materials, SCRAP gift certificates, or gift baskets from organizations meeting the following criteria:
- Non-profit organizations and educational organizations based locally in the region. (Please be aware that priority is given to organizations located within a two-mile radius of SCRAP.)
- Projects and organizations that directly benefit the local community.
- Projects and organizations that may lack significant sources of funding.
Prior to submitting a request, we strongly recommend visiting SCRAP to get familiar with the types and characteristics of the materials we carry. Then, complete the material donation request form at the bottom of this page and wait to hear from us.
SCRAP grants up to eight (8) donations requests per month that satisfy the above listed requirements. If your donation request is not granted, you may apply again beginning the 1st of the next month, if your timeline allows.
SCRAP reviews proposals and informs applicants (via email) within two weeks of receiving a request. Please consider this when preparing your donation request.
If your donation is approved, we ask that you include our logo in your event’s printed materials and post a table sign indicating that the materials were donated by SCRAP at your event. Download the sign (PDF).
Donation pick-up process
SCRAP cannot guarantee availability of specific used materials or predict future inventory. Donation recipients should be aware that SCRAP’s inventory changes continually. Materials requested might not be available at the time of pick-up. We strongly encourage donation recipients to plan accordingly, including the possibility of visiting more than once to fulfill donations and seeking backup sources of materials.
Donation recipients must select materials on their own. Recipients will check out with a staff member for final approval. Donations must be picked up during open hours.
If materials are left over after the project’s completion, donation recipients may re-donate materials that adhere to the material donation policy and items we are currently accepting.
