In partnership with The Home Depot
Good360 has been the nonprofit leader in product philanthropy since 1983 and is dedicated to meeting the needs of nonprofits by making donated products from America’s top brands and retailers available to them in real time. Since inception, Good360 has distributed more than $7 billion in product donations to its global network of nearly 30,000 nonprofits. Framing Hope was born out of the desire of The Home Depot’s (THD) associates to donate products to their communities, rather than spending money to ship them back to a distribution center or put them in a landfill.
CECP presents the Directors’ Award to Good360 for its Framing Hope partnership with The Home Depot, which donates products to its communities, rather than shipping them back to a distribution center or putting them in a landfill.
Since taking the helm in 2009, Good360’s President and CEO Cindy Hallberlin has been closely involved with the Framing Hope Program. One of her first orders of business was to meet top executives at The Home Depot Foundation (THDF) and personally visit several of the program’s nonprofit partners to assess the status of the program.
The Framing Hope Program’s success is due in part to new technology developed by THD that allows store associates to scan products set for donation and to—at the push of a button—alert a Good360-matched nonprofit partner that product donations are ready to be picked up. The Framing Hope Warehouse Program, created in 2010, engages community-based nonprofits with warehouse capacity to partner with several THD stores and redistribute donations to smaller nonprofits that might otherwise be unable to benefit from the program.
In 2010, The Home Depot Foundation (THDF) provided Good360 with a grant to work with Indiana University to measure the program’s impact. The research concluded that almost 500,000 low-income families were reached within one year of the program; and that within its first two years, Framing Hope diverted 2,500 garbage trucks of compressed waste from landfills. It is through this work and many other projects that lead to Good360's designation by Forbes Magazine as one of the top 10 most efficient charities in America.
