Change the Lives of People in need, One product at a time

Our Mission is to Help Those Who Need It

Waste to Charity has successfully been accepting donations, and providing quality products to those in need around the world for the past five years. We dedicate our time, energy and resources to helping the under served population by soliciting donations from both corporate America and individuals alike and redistributing them to those in need. We are a non-profit organization whose goal is to make a difference in the world by partnering with both business and individual members.

Acceptable inventory donations range from excess, obsolete and end-of-the-season merchandise.

Having a surplus of assets is an issue that affects just about every company in the after-market. This surplus or excess inventory takes up valuable warehouse space and can create various hidden expenses, such as insurance, maintenance, depreciation and even taxes. Organizations who donate merchandise to Waste to Charity can clear
out warehouse and retail space, earn federal income tax deductions and avoid liquidation nightmares.

When deciding whether or not to liquidate your stock, it is important to keep in mind that if you liquidate, you may be setting yourself up to be undermined with the selling of your own products. Discount houses may buy up your liquidated stock and compete against you, which can greatly affect your regular set prices. Instead, by donating your surplus inventory you can take advantage of federal income tax deductions, which could add up to twice the initial cost of the items. Donating simply makes good sense for corporations; not only does it make economic sense, but your generous contributions give back to the society and community as a whole, offering a helping hand to those less fortunate. Waste to Charity provides organizations with the peace of mind that their donations will be handled by experienced staff who will get them to where they are needed most.
