Nonprofit Groups

Second Gear is proud to 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 to 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, our nonprofit of the month 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.
