Collect donations for ThriftSmart. Support locally-based charities. Earn ThriftSmart gift cards in return.

Use them to support your organization’s mission and help people in need. Goodness, recycled.

That’s SMART!

Partnering through the GiveSmart Program furthers our mission and yours.

When your organization collects donations for ThriftSmart, it helps us create jobs, provide value to customers, and support charities that are changing lives both locally and internationally. Your organization, in turn, earns ThriftSmart gift cards and special discounts to support your mission and help you assist people in need. You sow into our mission, and we sow back into yours. Since we began this program, we’ve been able to give nearly $300,000 in gift cards to organizations doing great things all around the Nashville area. Join the many other local nonprofits, schools and churches partnering with us through the GiveSmart program, and help us recycle more goodness! See a list of our wonderful community partners here.
