About the Donation Program
The Donation Program enables eligible organizations to acquire County surplus property for their business and operational needs at no cost. The Donation Program refers to an eligible organization as a “Donee”. Eligible Donees must be either a government agency or demonstrate that they meet all of the following criteria:
1. Must be a private non-profit organization; and,
2. Currently doing work for the public benefit in Santa Clara County.
Any organization that believes that it qualifies as a Donee, should obtain and review the following information about the Program.
This Donation Program was established to reduce the cost of storing or scrapping surplus property and to provide needed items to organizations that are statutorily eligible to receive the property at no cost.
The Donee must submit a letter on agency letterhead that identifies the agency as a non-profit organization signed by the approving authority requesting the property, and describing how the property will be used. Submit the letter to:
2310 North First Street, Suite 201
San Jose CA 95131-1040
(Note: this is not the address of Property Disposal)
There is no guarantee that the Donee will receive the property when more than one Donee has requested the same items. When this occurs, Procurement makes the final decision as to which Donee(s) will receive the property.
When Procurement has allocated surplus property, and more than one Donee requests the same item, Procurement makes the final decision as to which Donee(s) will receive the property based on a random selection process, such as a lottery.
The quantity of surplus items that may be received by the Donee, may be limited to allow other eligible Donees to have access to the items.
