TURN ELECTRONICS INTO CASH DONATIONS WITH REUP'S E-DRIVE

What does ReUp do?
ReUp Fundraising helps organizations raise funds by unlocking the value of used or idle smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices with our comprehensive turn-key fundraising program, e-Drive®.  We pay better than market value for all electronics we process – with 100% of the donated proceeds paid to your charity or non-profit organization.

What is e-Drive®?
e-Drive® 
is the name of our comprehensive recycling fundraising program.  Organizations sign up for e-Drive® and then receive a custom webpage and a donations portal as well as promotional tools to support online and onsite electronic recycling collection drives.

How do I sign up my organization for e-Drive®?
Simply sign up here to create a fundraiser account. It will take a few seconds.  We will then be in touch with you to discuss your fundraising goals and register your organization.  Once registered, you will receive a promotional toolkit, free shipping labels, customer support for donors and assistance from a Success Manager to help you reach your fundraising goals with e-Drive®.

Why is everything free – is there really no cost at all to fundraising with e-Drive®?
It’s true – we offer our e-Drive® recycling program, marketing, and customer support all for free because our business is fixing electronics. We can pay your organization to collect used or broken devices and then we can fix them up and sell them.

How do I make a donation?
If the charity or non-profit is registered with us, you can simply request a free shipping label here.  Then just box it up and ship it in. It’s that easy!  Instructions on how to best prepare your devices for shipment can be found here.

What type of electronic items do you accept?
Please check our list of accepted electronics here.

How long does it take for my organization to receive funds?
All participating organizations receive cash payments on the 15th of each month.

How much money can we raise with ReUp?
You can raise unlimited funds with ReUp.   The value of each donation will depend on the make and model of the device.  For example, if 500 people each donate a used smartphone valued at $100 – your fundraiser would raise $50,000.  Request our buyback price list to give you an idea of the value of the most typical/popular devices.

What if a donor has a very expensive smartphone or tablet, like one worth $400 – will they really donate that too?
Yes, but they are more likely to donate newer models if they can keep a portion for themselves.  Good thing ReUp offers this feature! With your custom branded fundraising portal, donors can ‘trade-in’ their more valuable devices online and keep a portion for themselves – while still making a valuable donation to your organization.  Ask us more about this feature.

How does my organization track donations that are made?
We provide you with a simple-to-use online dashboard so you can view all activity.

Can ReUp Fundraising® support any charity or cause?
That’s an easy one, yep!  Just click here to register.

This all sounds so great, where have you been, ReUp?
We’ve been here all along – for 48 years! ReUp has been a trusted consumer electronics repair and refurbishing company since 1969. That’s right – we started repairing cameras & binoculars long before the iPhone or Android hit the scene!

Where is ReUp located?
Our 45,000 square foot state-of-the-art repair facility is located in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, adjacent to O’Hare International Airport in one of America’s largest industrial parks.  Because of our size, we can rapidly repair, refurbish, resell and recycle electronics – and we pass on this advantage to charities, non-profits and their donors by offering the best prices for all electronic devices.

How do I get in touch if I have a question or if I’m ready to ship in electronics?
Just email us and we’ll be in touch in no time.
