As a non-profit organization, the Woman's Exchange depends heavily on volunteers to help run the day-to-day operations of a 10,000 sq. ft. consignment store. Along with a staff of 19 employees, volunteers help keep the wheels of this wonderful organization turning, while making hundreds of shoppers happy every day.
We're particularly proud of the fact that a large number of our volunteers have enthusiastically served our organization for decades, many having started off as shoppers or consignors.
The Arts of Sarasota and Manatee counties have been the beneficiaries of all this dedicated work. Since 1962, more than $8 million in grants and scholarships have been awarded to organizations such as the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, Asolo Theatre, West Coast Symphony and Sarasota Opera, just to name a few. We also award scholarships to high school and college students studying in the Arts. Our customers, consignors and volunteers all work together to accomplish this common goal.
