MacHub accepts donations of non-cash items and assets and uses a
sophisticated online system with proven technology to sell items at
highest values in a global marketplace. Donors designate a MacHub
Partner or other Nonprofit to receive net proceeds of those sales. High
sales prices maximize proceeds to Nonprofit Partners and tax benefits to
donors. It truly is a WIN – WIN program for local citizens and
MacHub also partners with a Homeless Shelter to provide needed shelter
and job opportunities for the homeless. MacHub is revolutionizing
community fund-raising for our Partner Agencies by facilitating the sale
of high-value contributions. We thank our supporters and we welcome your
ongoing support of our efforts.
The MacHub pilot project grew out of a long-time McMinnville business
named Swedemom, and the passionate mission of Swedemom owner Cami Nyquist.
As the time came to close Swedemom as a for-profit business, Cami sought
out resources to help convert her long- nurtured business into something
that could benefit nonprofit organizations of all kinds. Those efforts
found key ingredients: start-up funding for a MacHub pilot project; a
commitment by the leaders of Yamhill County Gospel Rescue Mission to
oversee and help fund the project; and a series of positive experiences
with leaders of nonprofit organizations who quickly recognized the great
potential of MacHub to help them with sustainable funding for their
Months of planning and preparation led up to this week’s launch of MacHub.
Cami has donated the extensive remaining inventory from her Swedemom
business to give MacHub initial sales, and she continues working to expand
the scope of already-sophisticated Swedemom software to handle the new
needs of a MacHub program.
Local nonprofit organizations featured in this section have signed up to
participate, and others are expected to join that list. MacHub uses proven
technology to sell items at highest values in the global marketplace.
If all goes as Cami Nyquist and others hope and envision, MacHub will
prove its merit in the course of this six- month pilot project, and will
grow into an important local, regional, even national facilitator of
nonprofit fundraising services.
