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.

Application process

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.

Review process

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).

Project report

To help SCRAP document the community benefits of its donations, promote creative reuse, and inspire new ideas, we ask donation recipients to provide a very brief report, ideally with photos we can use for promotional purposes, about how the materials donated were used. In the case of an auction or raffle item donated for a fundraiser, a report on the success and attendance at the event is acceptable. Please send report and photos to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

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.

Material Sponsorships

In rare cases, SCRAP may donate a larger amount of materials for a specific project or program in exchange for significant sponsorship. Such projects would not be subject to the same requirements listed above, and are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Acceptable sponsorship opportunities may include: SCRAP logo on all printed materials, SCRAP logo and link on project website, mentions on social media, passes or invitation to project/event, cross-promotion of SCRAP or related SCRAP events, and more.
