Two Ten Share Your Shoes Product Donation Program
Convert your unwanted inventory into emergency financial funds to help footwear families who are in crisis right now.
Your participation in our Two Ten Share Your Shoes product donation program will help us respond to rapidly increasing industry need for hardship and crisis relief by generating the financial aid needed for thousands of footwear families who are struggling to make ends meet.
Unlike any other product donation effort in our industry, our Two Ten Share Your Shoes program will convert your excess inventory, into urgently needed funds that will be distributed to footwear employees in crisis so they can keep a roof overhead and food on the table.
Who Can Donate:
All US footwear manufacturers and retailers.
Types of Footwear to Donate:
We accept pairs of shoes from any of the categories below. Athletic, athleisure, and athletic-inspired typically generate the largest donations for Two Ten’s hardship and crisis relief fund.
- Gently Worn Returns
- B Grade
- All athletic, athleisure, and athletic-inspired
- All Men’s
- All Children’s
- Women’s Spring/Summer
We also accept women’s, men’s, and children’s apparel and accessories.
Please note that singles are accepted on a case by case basis. Donations of singles must be pre-approved and noted on the donation form. Singles should be able to be paired since we are not able to resell singles.
Share Your Shoes accepts donations of any size.
- Donations under 1,000 pairs – To maximize donations for Two Ten’s mission and ensure the cost of accepting a donation does not outweigh the revenue Two Ten would receive for the donation, donations under 1,000 pairs are paid for and shipped by the donor directly to Two Ten’s partner for processing of the donation.
- Donations over 1,000 pairs – Two Ten encourages all donors to pay for the shipping of donated items in order to maximize the revenue to support Two Ten’s mission. For donations over 1,000 pairs, Two Ten and its logistics partner will work with the donor to coordinate a date and time for product pick-up from the designated facility.
We 100%-guarantee your inventory will be distributed exactly where you specify.
Your product donation may be eligible for tax benefits (please consult your tax advisor).
The Process is Simple.
How to Donate:
Depending on a company’s corporate structure the tax benefit of donating excess inventory can be very advantageous, while also making a difference for footwear people in need. Section 170 (e)(3) of the US Internal Revenue code permits regular © corporations to deduct the lower of: 1) The cost of the products plus one-half of the difference between the cost and the fair market selling price, or 2) Twice the cost.
Section 170(e)(3) of the US Internal Revenue code permits “S” corporations or a partnership company to earn a straight cost deduction. Consult your tax advisor to determine what the deduction would be in your case.
