What Can I Donate?

Thank you for donating to Goodwill and supporting our mission!

Accepted Items

Goodwill accepts donations of clean, gently-used clothing and household items. We depend on the sale of these items to support our programs and services. In evaluating appropriate donations, a good rule of thumb is to consider whether your family or friends would find the item(s) useful if you passed that item on to them. We highly recommend that you keep a detailed list of the items that you donate to any not-for-profit organization.

IRS regulations require that the donor determine the “fair market” value of the donation using purchase receipts or some method of calculating the value at resale (like online auction sites). This “fair market value” is to represent the profit that you would be able to obtain for the item(s) if you sold them yourself, or if they were sold in a thrift store or consignment shop. Please note that, similar to a car, clothing loses value dramatically from the time of original purchase, so the amount you deduct may be less than that which you initially paid for the item.
