Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation

Who We Are

The Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation was created to reaffirm Job Lot’s deep commitment to people worldwide, with an emphasis on the communities where our stores are located. Contributions made to the foundation are handled with the same business expertise, intelligence and focus on value used to run the Ocean State Job Lot retail operation. This ensures that every dollar entrusted to the foundation makes the greatest possible impact on the communities we serve. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, donations to the Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation donations can be made on behalf of individuals and businesses on a tax-exempt basis.

The Ocean State Job Lot Charitable Foundation collaborates with our generous customers, area businesses and community partners to support each community where our stores are located, totaling millions of dollars in financial and product donations since the foundation’s inception in 2004. The contributions made supply these major areas of focus, but are not limited to:

  • Assisting people in need, including children, veterans and military, those who are homeless, and those struggling with food insecurity
  • Aiding animal rescues, shelters and welfare organizations
  • Providing support for healthcare programs and services

Over the past few years, specific initiatives have been created to support people and communities affected by crisis, natural disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, we have supplied over $35 million of personal protective equipment and emergency frontline medical supplies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters both domestically and internationally and to the crisis in Ukraine.
