Second Gear is proud of be an integral part of our Asheville outdoor community. Being consignment based, we rely heavily on locals as partners in our business, and we strive to give back to the community in many ways. In addition to participating in local fundraisers, hosting adoption days with Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, and donating numerous raffles and silent auctions, we also choose a select number of nonprofit organizations to be our nonprofit of the month.
In addition to being featured on our website, this organization is showcased in-store and in our local advertisements, is invited to hold an event at our store, and receives as a direct donation a percentage of the sales for the month. If you are interested in our nonprofit program, please contact us via email.

THIS MONTH’S FEATURED NONPROFIT
Second Gear’s nonprofit partner for Novmber is Forest School Foundation!
Come to Second Gear on Saturday, November 30th from 10am – 6pm to create crafts and learn more about Forest School Foundation – November’s non-profit of the month. Through the month of November, one percent of all sales at Second Gear will be donated directly to Forest School Foundation.
Imagine a classroom without walls, limited only by the sky above and the ground below, where children are encouraged to flourish and reach their fullest potential. The Forest School Foundation was established to support the advocacy and administration of forest schools and nature-based education across the southeast states. In 2016, the Forest School Foundation established its first fully-outdoor, year-round mixed-age preschool in Asheville, NC.
The Growing Wild Forest School serves children ages 3-6 with an emergent curriculum which supports child-directed, interest-based play in all seasons and all weather.
