Meet This Month's Nonprofit Partner!


EcoForesters is a nonprofit professional forestry organization dedicated to conserving and restoring our Appalachian forests through education and stewardship.

Our Nonprofit Program

We're proud to be an integral part of our local community!

As a consignment store, we rely heavily on locals as partners in our business, and we strive to give back to our community in many ways. Second Gear often sponsors local events & donates gift cards & products to causes we believe in.

Our primary community initiative is our Nonprofit Program which we started in 2016. This program supports a different local nonprofit organization each month.

Our nonprofit partner of the month receives a direct donation from Second Gear totaling 1% of all sales for their month.
We also feature each nonprofit on our website, in our store, and in local advertisements. Each nonprofit partner is also invited to participate in an interactive event at our store.

Second Gear has donated $100,000+ to over 40 local nonprofits!

Our 2024 Nonprofit Partners

Participating nonprofit partners are eligible to remain in the program for two concurrent years. Second Gear invites six new nonprofits to join the program every year.
