Giving for Living

The Annual Garage & Estate Sale not only provides critical funding to support The Settlement Home, but also creates opportunities for other nonprofits in the Central Texas community. In 2001, Giving for Living was established in order to assure  that  every  person, from any socioeconomic status, could benefit from merchandise sold at The Sale. By partnering with nonprofits in the Austin area, we are able to provide shopping certificates to individuals and families deemed to be in the greatest need. Anyone selected to receive a certificate may choose up to $25 worth of merchandise from any of our 21 Garage Sale “departments” free of charge. To date, more than 25,000 certificates have been distributed to over 100 nonprofit agencies and schools throughout the community. In 2018, we distributed 2,632 certificates were redeemed by the clients of 50 nonprofits.
