How It Works
ScholarShop is operated by The Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis. Proceeds from the sale of ScholarShop merchandise have been a significant source of funding for student loans and grants and The Scholarship Foundation’s education and assistance programs for more than half a century.
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 8,500 people and businesses in the St. Louis region. More than 20,000 customers purchase goods tax-free from ScholarShop annually. ScholarShop offers a fun atmosphere for upscale resale shopping at bargain prices, including recurring special events and promotions.
While ScholarShop is no longer accepting merchandise donations, donors will receive an itemized list by March 1, 2017 indicating the fair market value of their saleable, non-cash contributions for tax deduction purposes.
ScholarShop has provided an important source of funding for the Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis for 57 years. However, given significant changes in the fashion and retail industries, in 2016 the Foundation’s board of directors decided to pursue other fundraising strategies and cease retail operations in mid-2017.
