About Charity Storage
Charity Storage, a 501(c)3 organization (Federal Tax ID# 45-3253579), is the Official Charity Partner of the Self Storage Association & SSA-Managed/Affiliated State Associations, and the first and only national self storage industry charity. It is also a Charity Partner of the Inside Self Storage World Expo, Storelocal, the Storage Business Owners Alliance and the Nevada Self Storage Association, as well as an Affiliate Member of the Arizona Self Storage Association and the California Self Storage Association. In addition, the Texas Self Storage Association recommends Charity Storage to its members.
Charity Storage enables self storage facilities to utilize existing resources to raise funds for charities throughout the United States. 90% of auction funds are disbursed to qualifying organizations.
The Charity Storage Giving Back Program is an opportunity for the self storage industry to raise funds for nonprofits nationwide. Owners and managers designate a unit as the Charity Storage Unit at each participating location. They then collect abandoned and donated items into the unit. That dedicated unit is put up for auction, either online or onsite. A Charitable Donation Receipt is provided for all donations. When enrolled facilities sell the contents of their Charity Storage Unit, the proceeds are distributed as follows…
• Charity Chosen by the Facility (60%)
• Kure It Cancer Research (20%)
• Self Storage Association Foundation Scholarship Program (10%)
• Charity Storage (10%)
There are nearly 300 pre-screened charities already enrolled in the program, and more can be added if they meet the stated criteria. Charity Storage retains 10% of the auction proceeds to help cover administrative costs. This is made possible by storage industry operators and vendors who participate in the Sponsorship Program and underwrite operational costs.
