Donations to Us


We love donations! Are you cleaning out your toy room, craft closet, or junk drawer? Consider bringing those bags of miscellaneous items by The Craft Factory!

Objects we’re always on the lookout for:

  • Electronics parts (keyboard pieces, pieces of motherboards,  etc.)
  • Hardware parts (keyhole covers, nuts and bolts, etc.)
  • Craft materials (decorative papers, pipe cleaners, buttons, glitter, markers, crayons, etc.)
  • Sewing materials (fabric scraps, felt, buttons, lace, yarn, etc.)
  • Miscellaneous toy and puzzle and game pieces
  • Bags (paper or plastic or gift)

While we may not keep and use every piece of every donation, it helps us stay true to our efforts of reuse, reduce, recycle, and repurpose. Feel free to stop by with your donations during our regular drop-in hours. Thank you for your help!

Donations to You

The Craft Factory is happy to offer a donation for fundraising purposes to benefit arts and education organizations in the Portland-area.

Our standard donation is a gift certificate for a one-time, two-person crafter experience. This means the recipient of the gift certificate can bring a friend along, so the two can have one free crafting experience together.

In exchange for our donation, we would like to request working together on a promotion. Whether a social media shout-out via Facebook or Twitter, a mention in your newsletter, or other way of spreading the word, we appreciate any and all efforts made to let your community know we are here.

Feel free to send us a donation form via snail mail (The Craft Factory, 7832 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland, OR, 97219), email (, or call us with donation questions (503.577.4310).
