Feed the Children gives Avery donations to organizations recognized as 501(c)(3) charities or to educational institutions. (See this IRS document in PDF format on applying for tax exempt status.)
Additional eligibility criteria and guidelines:
Feed the Children processes applications requesting Avery items promptly, and we make most determinations within 7-10 business days of receiving all needed documentation.
If your organization meets all of the criteria and is approved to receive donations from Avery, we will notify the person listed as your primary contact. Email is our preferred method of notification.
The approval confirmation contains contact information for Feed the Children’s Consignment Coordinator overseeing the distribution of available Avery donations. The Coordinator will be able to tell you what items and amounts are available for your organization.
Please remember, the approval of your application does not guarantee donations will be available.
Avery provides various items from their inventory, many of which come from a stock surplus. The range of items available will vary, but they generally consist of office products, office supply products, and educational supplies.
Not all of the products Avery carries are available for donation. Your organization can request specific items, but their availability is based on the inventory at Feed the Children distribution centers. Since availability is based on the excess products Avery provides, specific items and/or colors are not guaranteed.
Feed the Children provides all donations free of charge. Your organization is responsible for either picking up or covering shipping costs for the products you receive.
