I am affiliated with a swim team and I have tons of trophies we do not want to throw away. Can you advise? Special Olympics does not want them. I live in Houston, Texas.

If you can't find a group that wants them, you can donate them to thrift shops. Shops in my area seem to be able to sell them. It is possible to switch out the tops (a swimmer for a golfer, for example). My mother used to have that done with donated trophies.

Where in the central New Jersey area can I donate about 60 trophies that my 3 sons have received over the past 10 years or so? The majority have a baseball, basketball, or soccer figure on top.

Boys and girls clubs, schools maybe. The Salvation Army will take them, and resell them. Other thrift stores may take them. Perhaps the clubs that gave them to your sons may take them back to reuse after you remove the name plates.

Hi and thanks for the information as I have difficulty finding anyone to take trophies. Of course it could be the area but I work part time for a major charity and we have been unable to sell them (at any price).

I will look for some of the places you mentioned and maybe have better luck.

Check with your local child care centers or public school. They could give them away without your name on them to a child who is earning rewards for behavior.

We have several trophies which were packed away in our attic. These were from our childrens' high school days in the late 70s, early 80s. They do not want them, nor do we. Is there a place in the Lehigh Valley Pennsylvania area that accepts these for recycling purposes?

Hi Patricia,

Just to add to some of the other comments, we get this question quite a lot from our customers. We are planning on adding a page to our site at some point with some advice, but in general we suggest the following -

Donate them to charity award dinners/evenings

Donate to local sports teams where funds are tight

Donate to local Student sports teams, again where funds are tight

Hope that helps a bit!

Patrick

Look for a place where challenged people live. We have one and they use them for prizes when they win. It doesn't matter whose name is on it or what it is for. They just know the won a prize or a trophy.

My belated husband was an avid pool player and I have an abundance of trophies stored away. I am looking to donate them to a charity or a pool league that might be needing trophies in order to pay out more to the players. Any suggestions?

AnswerWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

Advertise on Craigslist. Do it in the "free" section and again in sports. Also, would your local pool parlor be interested? Lastly, you can ask the local sports shops what they might think. I hope that helps. PBP

Where do I take these trophies to without having the expense of shipping them?

I believe trophies are like encyclopedias - very hard to even give away. Trophies are usually personal to the individual and have no value to anyone else.

I do not know of any organization that recycles these so I hope someone else has some ideas. Maybe you or someone else has found a decorative use?

Why not put them free on craigs list? May have a needy organization who might want them.

OR contact whatever sport club they are from your local organizations. It could save them money from having to buy trophies...which are so costly. They would only need to change the plaque on them.

You may be able to find a local trophy shop that will take them but usually you cannot find a taker. Sorry but they are usually only "worth" something to the original recipient.

I am wanting to donate tropies that my daughters have earned through 4-H and local horse shows. Is there anywhere in Canada that takes the donation of trophies? I live in Southern Alberta.

AnswerWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes
May 23, 20150 found this helpful

For a start, why don't you contact the local 4H clubs and see if they would like to reuse the trophies? Remove the name plaques, maybe keep those for a souvenir as they take up hardly any space, and the trophies are ready to be used again. With a phonecall or two, you will likely find someplace that will use them - a local school (my school used to reuse curling trophies for our bonspiels), a sports day with kids events (my mom took curling trophies, swapped out the curler for virtually no charge, and had them engraved for sunflower spitting and ballthrow competitions), maybe Special Olympics.

The Salvation Army will take trophies as well as Value Village, if you can't find any local club or organization that wants them. I am from Sask; I am sure it would be the same where you are.
