MacHub is a division of McMinnville-based Swedemom Center of Giving
(SCOG), which serves as a fund-raising engine for its Nonprofit
Our Partners – and SCOG itself – accept donations of non-cash items and
assets. SCOG’s sophisticated online system uses proven technology to
sell items at highest values in a global marketplace. High sales prices
maximize proceeds to Partners and tax benefits to donors.
It truly is a WIN – WIN program for local citizens and Nonprofits.
Here's the story of MacHub and the Swedemom Center of Giving
The MacHub pilot project grew out of a long-time McMinnville business
named Swedemom, and the passionate mission of Swedemom owner Cami Nyquist.
As time came to close Swedemom as a for-profit business, Cami found
resources to help convert her long-nurtured business into a Nonprofit to
help other Nonprofits. Those resources include startup funds for the
MacHub pilot project; a commitment by Yamhill County Gospel Rescue Mission
to oversee and help fund the project; and formation of a new Nonprofit
organization that became the Swedemom Center of Giving (SCOG).
Cami donated the extensive remaining inventory from her Swedemom business
to give MacHub initial sales. She continues working to expand the scope of
already-sophisticated Swedemom software to handle the needs of many SCOG
In 2018, SCOG took over operation of MacHub from YCGRM, creating the new
“MacHub Community Warehouse” to serve Limited Hub partners. YCGRM, which
continues as a Limited Hub, was key in in allowing SCOG and MacHub to
evolve into today’s wide-ranging program.
SCOG /MacHub provide Software/Sales services to:
“Hubs” locally, in Oregon and other states. Hubs are locations – often
linked to thrift shop operations – where a Nonprofit Partner collects,
produces and sells donated items using SCOG services.
“Limited Hubs” in and near Yamhill County. Limited Hubs are Nonprofit
Partners that collect donated items and bring them to the MacHub Community
Warehouse for production, sales and shipping by MacHub staff.
Personal Estates -- SCOG will work with families to sell valuable donated
Business Assets -- SCOG will work with businesses to sell valuable assets
that no longer are needed.
