Welcome to the home page of Out Of The Closet Thrift Shop and Foundation, Inc. We are a not-for-profit, charitable organization that transforms contributions of cash, donations of merchandise and bequests of property into annual grants to community organizations, projects and institutions fighting AIDS. For more than fifteen years through the proceeds of our volunteer-staffed thrift shop, consignments, sales, auctions, and the internet, we have supported over 70 such groups providing direct services to people at risk from AIDS.

Although we have closed the East 81st Street retail location, we are developing this site to further such efforts. Please check back here for further developments, and if you would like to be added to our email list, write to us at ootcnyc@hotmail.com
