It's time! If you know of or work with an amazing and active Non-Profit Organization,

Gear Hut's featured Non-Profit Partners all receive (2) months of being highlighted. This includes social media posts, a bulletin board dedicated to your group's missions and events, and the encouragement to our consignors to donated their goods to be consigned under the featured NPO's account. Items added and sold under the NPO account can help as a fundraiser for scholarships, clean ups, supplies, events, etc. In addition, every month, Gear Hut hosts a 10% of Sales Donation Day, where the shop donates 10% of the day's total sales to the featured NPO.

As in any case - the more effort you put in, the more you get out of the partnership. One of our favorite NPO's, Great Basin Outdoor's School has been a partner with us since 2018 when we opened. Sue creates beautiful bulletin boards for their months, highlights the shop on social media, and encourages Gear Hut to co-host Family Guided Hikes and Snowshoeing Events. Due to Sue's efforts, we get folks coming into the shop all the time donating items directly to the GBOS account, even when it's not their featured month. Because of her consistent activity with us, we've raised Great Basin Outdoor's School over $1,500, all from their consignment account, not including 10% of Sales Days. If your NPO is selected as one of our featured groups, be like Sue!
