The Toy Industry’s Toy Donation Program

The Toy Bank

The Toy BankSM the toy industry’s year-round turnkey partner for all product donations, from donating excess inventory to responding to emergency situations and simplifying trade show move out. Since 2003, The Toy Bank has delivered the extraordinary benefits of play to more than 31 million children around the world!

We collect new toys, games, books, and other playthings from toy companies nationwide and distribute them to millions of children affected by poverty, humanitarian crisis, and illness around the world. We have a network of more than 500 qualified nonprofits, NGOs, and children’s hospitals, as well as established relationships with international relief organizations and toy associations to make The Toy Bank the industry’s one-stop solution to support children in need.

A donation to The Toy Bank automatically connects your company to a program of scale to yield a greater measurable impact. We work to make a donation as easy as possible:

  • We schedule the pick-up with your warehouse or logistics team at no cost to you.
  • We work with you to determine the ideal placement for your donation and report its impact back to you.
  • We accept donations of any size at any time, from 100 or 100,000 items, a singular or quarterly scheduled donation.

Additionally, toy companies can receive tax breaks from their donations. Please consult a tax advisor.
