SAN CLEMENTE, CA, February 4, 2020 –
Chateau Products continues their support of Charity Storage at the Sustaining Sponsor Level for 2020. The company is a Founding Sponsor of Charity Storage, with Nancy Martin Wagner (Chateau VP of Marketing) actively involved as a member of the Charity Storage Board of Directors.
Chateau Products is a family-owned business, dedicated exclusively to the self storage industry. Since 1991, they have offered the industry high quality padlocks, latches and latch systems, with value pricing and the highest regard for customer service. They design and manufacture their security hardware to meet the ever-growing demands of the industry. In addition to the security hardware, Chateau also offers a full line of retail, moving and packing supplies, retail displays, maintenance items and tools, all specific to the self storage industry. Additionally, they work with new operators to help select ideal security and retail layouts for sites in development or under construction. Chateau is a global company, serving clients all over the world, with the headquarters and Eastern Distribution center in Florida and the Western Distribution Center in Nevada.
The Angel (Closed & Exclusive Category), Benefactor ($10K+/Year), Guardian ($5K+/Year), Sustainer ($3K+), Supporter ($500K+) & In-Kind Sponsorships enable Charity Storage to distribute 90% of all auction proceeds to qualifying charities. These donations also make it possible for the non-profit to continue the necessary outreach to increase facility enrollments, enhance brand visibility & recognition, as well as to promote it to the public at large. This puts Charity Storage in an optimal position to continue to help the self storage industry to give back to the communities they serve through Charity Storage Auctions. The Sponsors receive widespread acknowledgement for their support, including Press Releases, recognition on the Charity Storage website, in the quarterly Connections Newsletter, as well as in digital, social & print media.

About Charity Storage
Charity Storage is the Official Charity Partner of the Self Storage Association & SSA-Managed State Associations, and the first and only national self storage industry charity. It is also a Charity Partner of the ISS World Expo, Storelocal, the SBOA and the NVSSA, as well as an Affiliate Member of the AZSA and the CSSA. In addition, the TSSA has recently started to recommend 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. Nearly $600,000 in auction proceeds has been generated to date.
The Charity Storage Giving Back Program is an opportunity for the self storage industry to raise funds for charities throughout the United States. Owners and managers designate a unit as the Charity Storage Unit at each participating location, collect abandoned and donated items in the unit, and auction it off for charity. 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 distributed 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 300 pre-screened charities already enrolled in the program, 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.
