The Angel ($10K+), Sustaining ($3K+) and In-Kind Sponsorships enable Charity Storage to distribute 90% of all auction proceeds to qualified charities. The Sponsors also make it possible for the non-profit to continue the necessary outreach to increase facility enrollments, enhance brand visibility and 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 Charity Storage Connections Newsletter, as well as in digital, social and print media.
Charity Storage is the Official Charity Partner of the Self Storage Association, and the first national self storage industry charity. It is also a Charity Partner of the ISS World Expo, Storelocal and the NVSSA, as well as an Affiliate Member of the AZSA and the CSSA. In addition, TSSA has recently agreed to recommend the program to their 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 distributed to qualifying organizations.
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 their Charity Storage Unit, collect abandoned and donated items into the unit, and auction it off for charity. A Charitable Donation Receipt is provided for all donations.
Enrolled facilities sell the contents of their Charity Storage Unit in a live or online auction, with the proceeds 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 230 prescreened charities available on the website, and more may 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 through our Sponsorship Program by storage industry operators and vendors.
