The Giving Tree is a non-profit thrift and gift shop in Wake Forest, NC. Our mission is to support the ongoing educational, enrichment and extra-curricular programs of the 14 K-12, public, private, and charter schools in Wake Forest. We provide support through the donation of profits generated from our brick-and-mortar store.


We are a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Charity!

We sell donated home goods items and give all of the proceeds back to the 14 schools in Wake Forest.

What makes us Different…

“This does NOT look like a Thrift Store!”

Exactly! , Most new customers have this same reaction when they visit The Giving Tree for the first time

In our boutique-like atmosphere we sell donated home goods items including furniture, decor, collectibles, artwork, and children’s items. We also have a selection of new items (jewelry, scarves, soaps, and lotions) to complement our existing line of donated merchandise.

Whether you need a gift or something new-to-you for your home, you can find it at The Giving Tree!
