Accepted Items


Goodwill gladly accepts donations of clean, gently used clothing and household items. We depend on the sale of these same items to support our programs and services. If you are trying to figure out what is appropriate as a charitable donation, a good rule of thumb is to consider whether your family or friends would find the item(s) useful if you passed it on. KEEP TRACK OF YOUR DONATIONS BY ITEM: See a valuation guide here. 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 be the one to 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 what you would be able to obtain for the item(s) if you sold them yourself, or they were sold in a thrift store or consignment shop. Please note that clothing loses value dramatically at the time of original purchase, similar to a car, so the amount you can deduct is often far less than you paid.
