Access to Excess
Corporations, manufacturers, government organizations and retailers frequently find themselves with surplus goods and supplies. These organizations often update furnishings, renovate offices, and modernize hotel or dorm rooms. Sometimes, shipments are changed and orders are unable to be delivered to customers, leaving loads of new products sitting on roadsides or in ports with no destination. Restore Global collects these useable, often times new and like new products and redistributes them to non-profits who could utilize them most.
We have been able to provide medical supplies for the Ebola outbreak , an ultrasound machine for the Humane Society and basic furniture for recently homeless families who have secured housing .
Access to Procurement
Utilizing the power of a one of the world’s preeminent Group Purchasing Organizations, Restore Global assists non-profits in purchasing supplies at a discount they could not obtain on their own. Office supplies ranging from reams of paper, toilet tissue, and batteries are regularly purchased at discounts between 20-80% off of retail price.
For organizations renovating or building new facilities, our procurement team will assist you in sourcing all the materials needed to equip and operate the building. The cost savings realized in staff time and goods purchased can save non-profits hundreds of thousands of dollars and shave months off capital fundraising goals and timelines.
