LBC and Interface: A Partnership Forged For Positive Change

 

An exciting new partnership between LBC and Interface, Inc. has been launched. Interface hasagreed to provide as much volume and capacity of carpet tiles that LBC can cultivate a demand for. We need your help! By helping LBC spread the word throughout the community to potential customers, nonprofits, houses of worship, schools and community groups, you can help LBC demonstrate that there is a high demand for salvaged and new carpet tiles. The more demand we cultivate, the more material Interface and LBC can direct back into the community through this partnership.

In addition to the high volumes of carpet tiles available, the price savings is significant. Compared to limited styles and quality from other sellers at as low as $0.99/sq. ft. at minimum, LBC can provide 80%+ savings. 
On a 2000 sq. ft. project that equates to a savings of $1,600!

 

Nonprofit Material MATCH Program Process Overview 

Upon completing the Information Form, organizations submitting a request for materials must also provide a formal Request Letter as well as a copy of their tax exemption letter from the IRS. Organizations without tax exemption must provide one of the following: documentation from the IRS indicating that tax exempt status for the organization is under review (including application submittal date) or a letter of support from an active fiscal sponsor, along with a copy of the fiscal sponsor's tax exemption letter.

All grants are for building materials; no financial grants are awarded. Grants are only applicable to federally registered, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3), organizations who provide confirmation from the IRS. Lifecycle Building Center awards material grants the first week of each month. Applications must be submitted before the 1st of each month to be considered for that month’s award. Fast track grants can be awarded in certain circumstances. Grants expire after two months from the award date. Please only apply if your organization is prepared to collect materials within two months of submission. You can browse inventory prior to collecting during our hours of operation.

Materials collection days need to be scheduled prior to collecting. A LBC staff member will schedule your pick up date when you are awarded your amount. Material collection is available only by appointment. 

Organizations will be evaluated based upon the following criteria:

Previous Recipients (previous application strength, collection, progress reports)..........  10%

Description of Mission & Strength of Needs........................................................  20%

Description of Project & Availability of Requested Materials..................................   40%

Material Story/Progress Report......................................................................  30%
