When a company donates product to NAEIR they not only clear out their warehouse to make room for new product, they also receive an up to twice-cost federal income-tax deduction. In addition, the headaches that often accompany liquidating product can also be avoided.
Companies wanting to donate product to NAEIR submit a list with a brief description , quantities, retail value and packaging information to NAEIR’s Corporate Relations department.
The proposed list is reviewed by a Donation Review Committee to ensure that the products being offered are member-preferred and as such generally conform to the needs of our membership base. Also, there may be questions regarding the packaging, shelf-life (if applicable), and additional information requirements that may help us to better represent the products to our members.
The turnaround time on the review of a list takes place within 24 to 48 hours so that companies can begin to make arrangements quickly to ship the product to our centrally located warehouse in Galesburg, IL.
Once a proposal is accepted, an acceptance packet is emailed or faxed to the donor company and includes the acceptance letter, shipping information and a donation number.
Once the product is received as represented by the donor and in good condition, a tax letter is issued.
All of the donations NAEIR receives are redistributed across the country to thousands of nonprofit organizations, schools and churches. Our newly launched Teacher’s Program, directed to educators across the country also makes it possible for them to save huge amounts of money on classroom supplies.
