The Community Exchange Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of our community through the redistribution of useful resources that are inactive or are no longer wanted or needed by their current owners. Your contributions are tax deductible.

The Community Exchange Foundation facilitates the redistribution and reuse of value. We strive to keep resources in circulation by reconnecting perfectly good, currently-unused items that would otherwise be discarded to new owners who need them.

As a "middleman," we maximize utility, reduce waste, slow the flow to our landfills, and enhance the overall well-being of the community.  Our reconnection movement raises funds that we distribute to improve the quality of life locally and throughout the region.

The Kids' Exchange, our seasonal children's consignment sale, is currently our main program. It:

  • CONNECTS high-quality, gently-used and like-new children’s items with new owners;

  • REDUCES waste and consumption;

  • KEEPS items out of landfills;

  • DONATES children's clothing, toys and gear to the following non-profit organizations: North Country Ministry located in Warrensburg; Friends of Crandall Public Library in Glens Falls; Glens Falls Nation Boutique at Glens Falls High School; and Victory's Closet at Catholic Charities operated by the volunteers at Soroptimist International of the Adirondacks.

  • RAISES funds which are donated to local causes to improve community life. Since 2010, we have distributed $90,000 in funds and goods to:
