Fundraising Shouldn't Be So Hard.

No more bake sales. No school car washes. No wrapping paper sales.

Turn the clothes you no longer use into cash for a cause.

thredUP Groups is Easy to Use

We pay cash - upfront - for your quality, like-new clothing. You use that money for
anything you want that makes a difference in your community.

Raise Cash

We pay you for all items that can be resold in our shop. Please review our Standards to understand what we accept.

Identify a Cause

No cause is too small or too big. Pick something you and some folks you know care about. New instruments? Class trip? Library books? See examples.

Let Other People Know

Invite others who also care about your group. Friends on the basketball team? Parents in your kid’s class?

Request Free “Clean Out” Bags,
Fill & Return

Group members order “Clean Out” bags, fill them with clothing and ship them back to thredUP for free.
