United Way Capital Area Gifts In Kind Resource Center closing…

After nearly two years of successfully serving Central Texas non-profits with quality donated goods, the United Way Capital Area Gifts In Kind Resource Center located at 310 Comal St. in Austin will be closing on April 30, 2009.

Through the Resource Center, United Way Capital Area’s Gifts In Kind program distributed more than $1 million in non-cash donations of new and gently used items such as digital projectors, office supplies, equipment, furniture, toys and books. We appreciate your support of the Resource Center over the last 2 years.

United Way’s Gifts In Kind Program is not ending and will continue to operate and provide members:

  • Free “Pass through” donated goods (new or used) with direct referral to the donor – last year nearly $150,000 worth of goods were distributed to members through this program;
  • Managed “Wish List” posting needed items for direct referrals;
  • Inclusion in Gifts In Kind special events, such as seasonal donation drives;
  • Access to Gifts In Kind International, which includes the Retail Donation Partner Program where non-profits can be matched with a local business for available goods along with a Special Pricing Program.
