How It Works
ScholarShop sells upscale men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel; jewelry; accessories; and collectibles that have been carefully selected from the annual donations of more than 8,000 people and businesses in the St. Louis region. ScholarShop is operated by The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis.
At two ScholarShop locations, both in St. Louis County, professional managers supervise 150 dedicated volunteers and students who work together processing donations and assisting customers.
ScholarShop offers a fun atmosphere for upscale resale shopping at bargain prices. Recurring special events and promotions include the legendary Bag Sale followed by seasonal launches of entirely restocked merchandise.
ScholarShop operations generate retail sales of more than $3 million annually. Net proceeds are an ongoing source of funding for the mission of The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis, including the Interest-Free Loan Program for qualified postsecondary students from low-income backgrounds.
Merchandise donors receive an itemized list at the end of each year showing the fair market value of their non-cash contributions for tax deduction purposes.
