Supported Charities and Community Impact

African Leadership

One of the most rewarding aspects of our work at ThriftSmart is the opportunity to support charities that are making a tangible difference in communities both locally and globally. One such organization that holds a special place in our hearts is African Leadership. This incredible charity believes that the rise and fall of communities hinge on leadership. By investing in community leaders who are actively bettering their surroundings, African Leadership addresses the moral, cultural, and physical challenges these communities face. Their initiatives span across vital areas such as clean water, economic freedom, education, healthcare, and orphan care. What’s truly commendable is that all these projects are locally-planned and executed, ensuring that the impact is both sustainable and meaningful. Dive deeper into our partnership with African Leadership and discover the change we’re driving together on our supported charities page.

GiveSmart Program

In our continuous endeavor to amplify our impact, we introduced the GiveSmart Program. This initiative is a testament to the power of collaboration. When organizations come together to collect donations for ThriftSmart, it not only helps us create jobs and provide value to our customers but also bolsters our mission to support charities that are changing lives both locally and internationally. But the beauty of this program is that it’s a two-way street. Organizations that partner with us earn ThriftSmart gift cards and special discounts, furthering their missions. Since the inception of this program, we’ve proudly given nearly $300,000 in gift cards to organizations doing commendable work in the Nashville area.
