Community Forklift is excited to announce that we have recently earned our 2023 Platinum Seal of Transparency from Candid! Candid is a joint venture between Guidestar and Foundation Center, and the seals of transparency that they give to nonprofits are based on accountability criteria that include our audited financials, program data, staff and board demographics, and more.

We are proud to have reached the highest level of transparency to show our ongoing commitment to lifting our communities through reuse with integrity and transparency.

Check out our profile on Candid to learn more about our work and how you can support our mission of reuse.


Every time you donate or shop at Community Forklift, you’re helping us lift up local communities through reuse.  We turn the construction waste stream into a resource stream for communities in the DC region – by keeping perfectly good items out of the landfill, preserving historical materials, providing low-cost building supplies, and creating local green jobs.
