Donation Requests

The ReBuilding Center welcomes requests for donations of used building and remodeling materials from organizations meeting the following criteria:

  • Grassroots organizations based locally in the region
  • Projects and organizations that are inclusive and directly benefit the local community

Typically, The ReBuilding Center reviews proposals and informs applicants (via phone, fax or email) within two weeks of receiving a request.

To help The ReBuilding Center document the community benefits of its donations, promote reuse projects and inspire new ideas, we ask donation recipients to provide a very brief report, ideally with photos, at the conclusion of the project. Please mail your report to The ReBuilding Center or send it via email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

The ReBuilding Center cannot guarantee availability of specific used materials or predict future inventory. Donation recipients should be aware that The ReBuilding Center’s inventory changes constantly. Materials approved for donations are not always available. If your desired materials are not in stock, consider using available alternative materials or backup sources. Please plan on gathering your full donation in one visit. Also, note that we generally limit our lumber donations to a maximum TRC value of $100, pending availability.

Approved donation recipients will be assigned to a ReBuilding Center staff member as their primary contact to walk through the warehouse and yard to identify, select, record and load materials approved for donation.

Donation recipients are asked to pick-up their donations within 10 days after approval, ideally on a weekday, unless other specific arrangements have been made.

Please limit your requests to two per calendar year, so that we can provide donations to as many individuals and organizations as possible. Thank you.
