Clinton Laws, the founder of WIN Warehouse had a special ability to care for others. As a business executive and later as a nonprofit leader, Clinton had unique insight into the operational strengths and challenges of both worlds. However, anyone who knew Clinton knows that it was his passion for helping that people inspired him to create WIN Warehouse.
When Clinton learned of the enhanced deduction offered by the IRS for gifts of excess inventory, he saw a tremendous opportunity to connect nonprofits in need of products and resources with corporations in need of moving their excess inventory. So in 1991, Clinton started a nonprofit dedicated to serving both nonprofits and corporations. Twenty-five years later, WIN Warehouse now serves nonprofits all around the world and some of the most forward-thinking corporations in the U.S.A.

“I wish I would have connected with WIN years ago when Refab was founded. The handling fees are more than reasonable and the people there are a pleasure to work with. Not only are we now saving tons of money on everything from toiletries to hand tools to material handling equipment, we find items that significantly expand our operational capacity for a fraction of the cost of new.”
Eric Schwarz, Founder + Executive Director at Refab
“WIN has been so good to us in helping to meet concrete needs of our community members. One awesome way they’ve helped is by getting things like dress shoes for the men who go through our JLT program, to be used at jobs, interviews, and worn on graduation day. It means so much to be able to provide something as simple but meaningful as a nice pair of shoes. Thank you, WIN!”
Nikki Kamp, Social Media + Volunteerism VISTA at Mission: St. Louis
“Since 1979, CJM has served individuals who are reentering the community after periods of incarceration. Helping clients obtain and maintain employment is a critical component of CJM’s reentry process. CJM is proud to partner with WIN Warehouse in supplying clients with the work supplies that they need to succeed.”
Gwen Smith, FIRST Services Manager at Criminal Justice Ministry
“I am so grateful to have found and been able to receive high quality office chairs at such a reasonable cost through WIN Warehouse. Member Relations Manager, Jessica, answered all of my questions and they made it easy for my district to arrange a pick-up time the very next day. We ordered 20 new chairs for students to use, which we had assembled and ready to go within a day or two. I will definitely be using WIN Warehouse for future donations considering we have had such a positive experience!"
