Fundraising Basics

Our fundraising service is an extremely convenient and an efficient way to gather funds for a school, class or charity. It works as follows:

  1. Fill in the fundraising application form here
  2. Organize an event to which people will bring their unused baby and kids' items and maternity clothes.
  3. Swap.com will organize a pick up or shipping of the items to the Swap.com fulfillment center in Bolingbrook, IL.
  4. Swap.com will list the accepted items on your fundraising account for 90 days (or as agreed). See our acceptance criteria for items.
  5. Your organization will receive the proceeds of the sold items (after Swap.com deducts its selling fees) by PayPal or check
  6. Swap.com will pay a lump sum for the remaining items on the fundraising account after the 90-day selling period is over.
