Cloth Diaper Charity Directory

There are lots of cloth diaper charity organizations that collect new or used cloth diapers to be donated or loaned to families in need.  This page features many of these organizations.




What Do Cloth Diaper Charities Do?

Cloth diaper charities do so much more than just lend out cloth diapers to families in need.  They are advocates of cloth diapering in the community, and provide education and support to families who are making the transition to cloth.


These organizations are usually registered charities, and are run by volunteers.  They work tirelessly to make cloth diapering affordable and accessible, through education, support, and assistance.

Where to Donate Cloth Diapers

Cloth diaper lending organizations are always in search of cloth diapers to help families ditch the disposables and start a more affordable way of diapering with cloth.  Many are registered charities and may even offer tax receipts for cash and in-kind (diaper or accessory) donations.


Diapers don't need to be in perfect condition, either.  Charities will strip and disinfect used diapers, and many do small repairs.  While the charities run on volunteer power, donations of cash are also gratefully accepted to help pay for additional diapers and accessories, shipping, materials for repairs, educational brochures and more.


Where to Borrow Cloth Diapers

Really want to use cloth but can't afford the start-up costs?  If you are struggling to finance the transition to cloth diapers, you may be eligible for a cloth diaper loan from a cloth diaper charity.  Check out the list of organizations below to see if there is one close to you, or look to one of the national organizations for help.

In Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? Dr. Seuss says, "You ought to be thankful a whole heaping lot, for the places and people you're lucky you're not."


I've always admired others who give deeply to causes they believe in. Over the past year as I built the Thinking About Cloth Diapers website, I often thought about whether there was a way to use this website to help others less fortunate.


Dr. Seuss' second reminder, from The Lorax provided inspiration: "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. Its' not!"

It took most of the year, but we've finally pulled together our first event designed to make a real difference!
