Shop Secondhand, Support Our Schools

share this:


It’s that time! School is right around the corner, and that means early mornings, back-to-school nights, homework, and…fundraisers! Enter thredUP for Schools—the easiest fundraising you’ll every do. You shop, we donate. No bake sales necessary. For every purchase you make at thredUP, we’ll donate 5% to a K-12 school of your choice. It’s THAT easy.

We launched our pilot program just last month to overwhelming support. Join over 6,100 schools across 50 states that are already participating! Turns out it was the perfect time to test an innovative way for our customers to support their local schools (a care we ALL care about).

“As a former teacher, I believe passionately in using technology and innovation to support education in our schools.” – James Reinhart, Co-Founder and CEO (and dad of three!)


Want to help your school earn even more money? 100% of the proceeds from designated Clean Out Bags go to your school. Become a School Ambassador and help us spread the word by distributing thredUP for Schools Clean Out Bags. You’ll receive a kit with 40 Clean Out Bags, a tote bag, fundraising tips + tricks, balloons, kids’ coloring sheets and more.





But the most important thing you can do to help your school is to share the program with your friends and family. Not only is it a way to turn more clothes into cash for our schools, but it’s also a great way to teach kids about recycling and social responsibility.

Shout it from the blacktop!
