Why donate to The Surplus Exchange?
We make it easy to deal with excess and unwanted, but still

usable, business furniture and equipment. By calling the Surplus Exchange,

arrangements can be made for pickup of the materials. We provide you with

an “In-Kind Gifts Receipt” for tax purposes.

Who Benefits?
The Community      
Through The Surplus Exchange, nonprofit organizations in greater

Kansas City have access to furniture and equipment that otherwise would

be too expensive. Shopping at the Surplus Exchange, for items no longer

needed by local businesses, allows nonprofit organizations to spend their

limited dollars on the people they serve. Annually area nonprofits save

in excess of $300,000 on their purchases of reused furniture and equipment

over similar but new items.

The Environment      
The reuse/and or recycling of used electronics, metals and

other redeemables saves renewable resources from being forever lost in the

dump. It is estimated that, by the year 2005, more than 150 million personal

computers will be resting in America’s landfills. Last year, Surplus Exchange

kept more than 4000 tons of business equipment and furniture from the waste


Donating to The Surplus Exchange has both a social and environmental

impact as well as being “good business”.
