A Charitable Donation Receipt is provided for all donations.
When enrolled facilities sell the contents of their Charity Storage Unit in a live or online auction, the proceeds are then distributed quarterly to the Charity Chosen by the Facility (60%), Kure It Cancer Research (20%) and the Self Storage Association Foundation Scholarship Program (10%). There are over 230 prescreened charities available on the website, and more can be added if they meet the stated criteria. Charity Storage retains 10% to help cover administrative costs and is able to accomplish this through donations made to our Sponsorship Program by storage industry operators and vendors.
