Corners Of Your Field is a partnership opportunity between your thrift store & non-profit and local churches. The name “Corners Of Your Field” is taken from the book of Leviticus where God’s plan for caring for the poor, widow and alien is described. The modern-day equivalent is cleaning out closets, garages, and attics in order to help those in need – a process well-known to thrift stores supporting a non-profit.
Corners Of Your Field encourages church members to be intentional about selecting their gently used household items for donation to you. You then share a portion of the value of these items in the form of gift cards to your store with local churches to be used to help those in need.
Tracking Each and Every Donation
To facilitate the sharing of gift cards, accurate records of donations are critical. With the power of ThriftTrac, the right information is captured quickly and completely.
With each donation, a donor identifies his or her church, along with details about the donation. The value of a donation is automatically calculated, based on the quantity and type of item given. Periodically, all donations attributed to a church are reviewed to determine the amount of gift cards to be shared.
Corners Of Your Field is designed to accomplish one goal – motivate the church to give their excess out of conscience versus convenience. Church members will gladly drive an extra five minutes once they understand the impact of their donation. When the story is told effectively, donations increase in both quantity and quality. And relationships are cemented between like-minded organizations.
