Help us recycle... and raise funds!

Ink Jet/Toner Cartridges      Cell Phones     Laptops and MP3s     Tablets


Non-profit organizations across the country have been dealing with huge budget cuts, but we’ve found a way to supplement our finances to get the sports equipment and supplies we need.

Special Olympics Indiana – Ripley Ohio Dearborn Counties is participating in the FundingFactory® Recycling Program! This fundraiser is FREE and simple because there’s nothing to sell, no paperwork to fill out and no deadline. The program runs year-round, accumulating constant income for our efforts. But we won’t get very far without your support. Please donate your empty printer cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops to our organization and we’ll take it from there! We will recycle the cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops through FundingFactory to earn cash.

Last year alone, more than 300 million cartridges were thrown away, while 30,000,000 cell phones were tossed or replaced. We’re alleviating the volume of waste that goes into landfills, while collecting cash we need to keep our organization running smoothly. Your help is vital to our fundraising success. Cartridges, cell phones, small electronics, and laptops can be dropped off at the following locations: Indiana Mentor (River Creek Shopping Village, Aurora) or RE/MAX Advantage 1 (Aurora). Or contact our Fundraising Coordinator, Cheryl Shuman at [email protected] to make arrangements.

FundingFactory also sponsors a businesses support program, where your employer can help out our organization without spending a cent. FREE prepaid shipping labels can be sent, free of charge, directly to any business, organization or other facility within the continental United States. Business supporters simply need to load boxes, apply a FREE prepaid shipping label and leave them for the next UPS pickup. If you work for a company that may be interested in supporting us, please call FundingFactory toll-free at 1.888.883.8237. Give the customer service representative our school identification number 51578 and they’ll set you up to support our account.
