Amazon has announced that it is launching Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) Donations, a new program where eligible excess and returned products from sellers using FBA will be made available to charitable organizations.

Amazon will start donating products from sellers starting this September in the U.S. and UK, providing helpful items to people in need. Amazon works with charity partners and manages logistics to streamline the donation process for independent sellers.

FBA Donations builds on Amazon’s long history of donating millions of Amazon retail products to charities each year. In the U.S., Amazon is working with Good360, a global leader in product philanthropy and purposeful giving. Good360 partners with retailers and consumer goods companies to source highly needed products and distribute them through a network of diverse nonprofits that support people in need. In the UK, Amazon is working with charities including NewlifeSalvation Army, and Barnardo’s.

“We know getting products into the hands of those who need them transforms lives and strengthens local communities,” said Alice Shobe, Director, Amazon in the Community. “We are delighted to extend this program to sellers who use our fulfillment services.”
