In just a few short years, Freecycle™ has generated a spectacular worldwide outpouring of generosity, changing the world one gift at a time. Those with still good used items happily share; those who need gracefully receive, all without judgement - or any funds - passed.
Freecycle™ performs many wonderful functions: building bonds and community, keeping material items from the landfills, and redeeming the clutter that consumes us by moving it forward to a new, productive life.
Due to the incredible efforts of nearly 10,000 local volunteers, The Freecycle Network™ is able to keep its administrative expenses quite low. However, as the largest recycling and reuse website in the world, we have rather substantial server, bandwidth and coding expenses. And, your help to keep this incredible grassroots effort going is deeply appreciated. Please feel free to reference our latest IRS 990s as well as on the independent website GuideStar.org. Your generous donations to The Freecycle Network are tax deductible as we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Thank you for your support in 'changing the world one gift at a time.'
We welcome donations to help meet these expenses and to continue to refine and spread our extraordinarily successful Freecycle™ infrastructure. We especially encourage those who are grateful for the opportunities Freecycle™ has provided, either as donor or recipient, to donate in honor of Freecycle partners. Freecycle™ will be happy to notify anyone you choose of a donation in his/her honor.
