Put Your Dollars To Work! 

Financial gifts help keep the lights on at the Scrap Exchange. Even though our retail outlets help sustain our operations, your donations close the gap. Not only do they allow our Arts Reuse Center and Thrift Store to be operational, giving also supports our community programs including professional workshops, the Make-N-Take studio and Design Center where we host creative classes.

Round up your purchase at our retail stores

We always accept donations at both of our retail stores. If you are already shopping, consider rounding up your total at the register to include a donation with your purchase. 

Donate Online

We partner with Paypal to make it easy for you to donate online safely and securely.

Mail your donation

We accept checks by mail. Please make your check payable to The Scrap Exchange and mail to our administrative offices at: The Scrap Exchange, 2050 Chapel Hill Road, Durham, NC 27707.
