Sometimes, saving up to 90 percent on supplies and equipment your nonprofit needs can sound too good to be true – until you know how it works. WIN Warehouse brings together corporate donors and nonprofits in a way that benefits both organizations. (You might even say it’s a win/win, but only if you wanted to be really on the nose about it.) Here’s how it all works:
Part 1: Companies donate excess inventory
As diligently as companies try to predict demand and understand what their customers want and need at any given time, at times there will be excess inventory. Whether the items have been discontinued, returned or are simply slow-moving, inventory begins to take up too much space in their warehouses. That translates to additional cost. Companies have to decide whether to add more space to continue housing these products or liquidate for pennies on the dollar. Now they have a better option: donating to WIN Warehouse.
Donating to WIN allows companies to free up valuable warehouse space for more profitable products, and they get a tax deduction up to two times the cost of the items donated. WIN also accepts the donations for free – no processing fees or other costs to the donor. They save money and increase efficiency, all while helping nonprofits do more good.
Part 2: Nonprofit members save up to 90 percent on the items they need.
Nonprofits can become a basic member for free, which gives them access to thousands of products, volume discounts, deals of the week and more. For $149/year they can become a premium member, which has the additional benefits of getting first notifications on limited products, early access to member events and a 10% discount off orders before shipping.
We store all the items in our 150,000-square-foot warehouse, and nonprofit members can stop by and browse or shop our inventory online to find the items they need. From paper products to pallet jacks, we’ve got a wide variety of supplies and equipment. No matter what they’re looking for, nonprofits can check WIN first to see what goods they could be saving on.
Part 3: Do more good.
Nonprofit members are able to put the money they save on these items toward carrying out their mission and doing more good in the world. Ultimately, that’s what WIN Warehouse is all about.
