Cabinet Hardware.org is an unusual business, so it's not surprising we get a lot of questions about what we are: Are we a Cabinet Hardware business, or an emergency relief organization? Truthfully, we're both. On the business side, we sell many of the top brands cabinet knobs and pulls, plus related items, such as kitchen and bathroom accessories and home organizers. Yet, we do not believe that business has to stand for the bottom line only. We wanted to create a business that would give back to the community. Since we were a home improvement store, it seemed natural that the way we would give back would be to help those in need to improve their homes. And since virtually all cabinet hardware manufacturers have instituted minimum pricing policies, we are able to give away large sums of money yet still not be undersold.
The way it works is simple, when a standard purchase is made, 10% of the purchase price is then set aside to be given as grant money to someone who can use assistance rebuilding a home. Anyone who wishes may apply for a $1000 rebuilding grant, but it is our purchasers who decide which grant applicants get funded and which do not. So for instance, if someone spends $150 on a new set of appliance pulls, $15 is set aside as grant money, and that purchaser can choose which project their $15 award should be given toward. Projects that reach $1000 in awards from our shoppers receive a grant. To learn more, visit our Relief Efforts page.
