Information for Nonprofit Organizations

We are here to assist eligible nonprofits in Georgia with acquiring low-cost state and federal personal surplus property – such as furniture, electronics, medical supplies, and office and food service equipment – to meet your business needs.

Why You Should Consider Our Program

Acquiring a vehicle, office furniture, office furniture or other equipment through Surplus Property saves resources that can be used for operations or other expenses. All items are priced at a low fixed rate. Obtaining electronics such as laptops, cameras, and other equipment at a fixed rate can help keep your growing organization afloat during challenging times. Reusing instead of buying new items maximizes your dollars and generates cost savings!
