1. You must login to Post items available
  2. Delivery / shipping arrangements are to be coordinated between the parties exchanging materials. Trade Aides can neither store materials nor absorb shipping / delivery costs.
  3. Please don’t wait for a posting of need. Please post materials (parts, pieces, equip, cutaways, consumables, etc) as you have the material available. You never know the needs of schools. Post anything you might consider throwing away.
  4. Keep in mind that some schools are for profit and will not be able to offer you a tax deduction opportunity for your donation.
  5. If you will only consider donation for tax deduction opportunities, make that clear in your post.

Industry Donations

The industry donation section of our website is specifically focused on helping schools by facilitating a virtual marketplace for industry related tools, equipment and consumable materials. This makes the donation pages a highly interactive experience that also results in better support for schools and a way for established companies to give back and help sustain the furtherance of trade professions. In order to list donations in this area, members will first need to register and log in to gain access to the system. The Donations Listing board will act as the communication channel between interested parties, but individuals or businesses who are posting these donations will need to retain the items until they are claimed and will also be responsible for coordinating shipping or pick up / delivery of the items. Please be sure to include accurate contact information and any restrictions on transfer, as this can help schools and students to better find the resources they need to obtain.
