  • Guidelines For Donating

    • Donating to Goodwill is easy. Just follow the steps below to assure you get the most from your donation experience.
    • 1. Donations should be in working order and in good, clean condition.
    • 2. Donate during our operating hours.
    • 3. To claim a yearly tax deduction, easily track your donations online at MyGoodwillDonations.org or ask the attendant for a paper receipt each time you donate.

  • What to donate to Goodwill

    • Thank you for supporting Goodwill. Your donations of new and gently used items support our mission of changing lives through education, training and employment. We ask that all donated items be in working order and good, clean condition (Goodwill cannot repair or refurbish donated items).
    • 1. The lists below provide examples of items Goodwill can accept, as well as items Goodwill cannot accept.
    • 2. We ask donors to please avoid donating recalled items that have been deemed unsafe by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Our three-tier assessment system ensures these items do not get sold. View a list of recalled items here.
    • 3. Donation attendants must decline donations that cannot be sold because of quality concerns or because they have been recalled.

  • What's your donation worth?

    • Follow these easy steps each time you donate to assure you have a complete record of all the items you have donated to Goodwill come tax time. Based on IRS regulations, it’s up to donors to document the value of their donations.
    • 1. Create a list of all the items donated
    • 2. Refer to the Suggested Value List Guide
    • 3. Record what each item is worth.

If you recently made a donation, visit My Goodwill Donation and sign up to start tracking and assigning a value to all your donations. Come tax time, all the donations you made throughout the year will be in one convenient place for easy access and printing.
