The Giving Tree employs a passive fundraising model requiring very little hands-on work on the part of the parents, students and the individual school system. Schools participate and earn credits through volunteering, donating and purchasing. These accumulated credits then translate back into cash donations at the end of each calendar year. Our stores support twenty K-12 schools in Wake Forest and Youngsville (public, private and charter).
Best of all, in less than 9 years, we have been able to give over $130,000 back to the schools!
We are a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Charity
When you donate your time and unwanted home goods items you are supporting Wake Forest Schools and sustainable living!
