Thrift for Good is a donation-based thrift store unlike any other:
Founded in Hurst, TX, Thrift for Good is a donation-based thrift store that lets donors choose which charity receives 25% of the proceeds from their donation. We believe that donors should have the power to make an impact in the area of their choice. Focused on persevering our environment and positively impacting the community, Thrift for Good gives TFG Charitable Supply & Foundation items that cannot be sold so that they can be distributed to other nonprofits in need. Sold or donated, all item are used to provide many opportunities across the community.

How it functions:
We collect and sort used goods of all kinds, and hope to adopt a “zero-waste” approach. Donors bring us their discards, and designate which church, charity, booster club, or school will get the proceeds from their donation. We sort the goods, and leverage the greatest value out of each item.
Items that are not worth enough to sell will be donated to the TFG Charitable Supply & Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization that will coordinate the gifting of those items to clothing rooms, homeless shelters, and other charitable organizations allowing them the opportunity to impact more lives.

Our Secret Sauce:
Most thrift stores focus on moving a massive number of goods at deeply discounted prices. Each item is priced the same, regardless of its actual value. These stores can’t afford the labor involved in assessing and marketing each item, so the value goes unrecognized, and the charity loses out.
Our vision is to create technologies to deal with the massive flow of used merchandise in our economy. This flow is not well organized right now - with disastrous consequences to our pocketbooks and environment. Simply put, no one has applied modern technology to this industry. Most thrift stores operate just like they did 50 or even 100 years ago!
About the Founders:
Our two founding partners have an unlikely convergence of skills: Taylor Watts is a process automation specialist and electrical engineer who worked to design and install factories for huge companies like Dr. Pepper and Purina. Jen Cooper is an attorney turned venture capitalist with experience in marketing and tech startups. They both grew up in junk stores, preferring used to new, and met a couple of years ago while operating their respective niche resale businesses.
