Resources for Grantees

Columbia Reuse

Columbia Reuse is a program that makes surplus readily available to the university administration and 501(c)3, providing a platform to put unneeded items to a good second use. We believe one office's excess could be another's necessarily.

The Columbia Reuse program is a vehicle to facilitate the exchange of office furniture and equipment within the University and local community organizations. This is consistent with the University's goal to conserve resources and minimize waste by helping other departments and community organizations that are in need of equipment and furniture. This program is not intended to provide used equipment and/or furniture for personal or home use.

The program is run by the University's Environmental Stewardship. To get more information, please contact the Environmental Stewardship Office by sending an email to [email protected].

The University’s Medical Center, which is located at West 168th Street and Fort Washington Avenue operates a similar fund called the Medical Center Neighborhood Fund, which provides grants for organizations located to the north of West 155th Street.  More information on this fund is available at their website
