20 Years of Delivering Joy: The Toy Bank is the Leading Industry Solution for CSR and Inventory Management
March 28, 2023 | For 20 years, The Toy Foundation’s (TTF) Toy Bank program has served as a resource for the toy industry to donate toys, clothing, accessories, and more to millions of children in need. As the industry continues to evolve, The Toy Bank is changing alongside it to be your turnkey solution to manage corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs and excess inventory issues all year long.
Whether it’s one donation or quarterly pick-ups, The Toy Bank makes the process as easy as possible. Start by sending your donation information
and TTF will:
- Schedule the pick-up with your warehouse or logistics team.
- Deliver your donation to children in need.
- Report back the impact of your donation.
The Toy Bank delivers product year-round to children affected by poverty, humanitarian crisis, and illness around the world. TTF has a network of more than 200 qualified nonprofits, NGOs, and children’s hospitals, as well as established relationships with international relief organizations and toy associations that serve children globally. By donating to The Toy Bank, companies are automatically connected to a program of scale to yield a greater measurable impact.
“Thanks to your continued donations, The Toy Bank has delivered the extraordinary benefits of play to more than 30 million children since 2003,” said Pamela Mastrota, executive director of The Toy Foundation. “Let’s work together to impact even more children in your backyard, at children’s hospitals, or living through humanitarian crises. The Toy Bank is your partner to simplify logistics and efficiently deliver the joy of play to children in need.”
Your support of The Toy Bank helps your business, the toy industry, and, most importantly, children in need. If your organization interested in serving as a sponsor of The Toy Bank, please contact TTF’s John Fistolera. A financial contribution can be processed online and product donations via this form.
