Guide to Collection Drives


Thank you for your interest in hosting a collection drive for area nonprofit organizations. The guide is compiled from the responses from a survey distributed to over 1,000 nonprofit organizations in the Kansas City metropolitan area.

Many of these organizations need assistance year-round, as well as during the holiday season. Typical donated items include gift cards, office supplies, furniture and clothing.

If you have never hosted a collection drive, or simply need some pointers on how to make your drive more successful, please review the links to the left of this page.

  • 1. Organization name
  • 2. Address
  • 3. Web address
  • 4. Mission statement
  • 5. Contact information
  • 6. Donated items list
  • 7. Ability to provide donation pick-ups

This guide is updated on an ongoing basis, so please check back frequently.
