Furnishing Hope Program Helps Non-Profits Raise Thousands – with a Potential of Much More

Columbus, USA, April 24, 2014 /CSR-Resources.com/ Furnishing Hope program was established in July of 2013 and has already given an estimated $20,000 to local charity. The program was created by Capital Choice Office Furniture to help give back to the community and provide quality used furniture for the retailer.

The Furnishing Hope program allows companies to donate their surplus furniture with the majority of the proceeds going to a charity. Chris DiSilvestri, owner of Capital Choice Office Furniture and creator of the Furnishing Hope program, believes that this program could help many non-profits reach their fundraising goals. “We just need to get the word out about this program and the community will benefit. The company that donates the furniture will get a tax write-off. It’s a 7 win scenario because everybody wins.” More specifically:

1. Charity gets cash donation.
2. Companies have a solution for moving large amounts of surplus assets quickly.
3. Save landfills.
4. Provide furniture and other office equipment to new and growing smaller companies at a reduced cost.
5. The donating company gets recognition.
6. People are put to work moving and reselling assets.
7. The donation is provided by the business community instead of charities being dependent on government grants.

The Furnishing Hope program utilizes AuctionsNow.com, a sister company to Capital Choice Office Furniture, to sell the items to the public. Auctionsnow.com is an online auction website that was created to sell bulk items from Capital Choice Office Furniture and provide another avenue to liquidate commercial items. The AuctionsNow team manages the entire process of promoting the items online to the removal of the items from a company’s facility.

If you are a non-profit business and you know of a business that has surplus furniture, either they don’t use it anymore or they need a different setup of furniture because of company growth, provide a contact name to Capital Choice Office Furniture. Upon the sales of the items, Capital Choice Office Furniture will write a check to the non-profit that provided the lead. It’s that easy!
