Acceptable Donations

Donation Drive ThruWhen you donate to Goodwill, you create jobs for people who might not otherwise be able to find work.

Donating to Goodwill is free and easy. Bring your items to any of our convenient locations during regular business hours.

**Please note that due to recent changes implemented by our recycling partner, we no longer accept televisions at any of our store locations or donation centers.

Tax Deduction Information

For more information on possible tax deductions for your donations, visit the IRS website for detailed information. Goodwill cannot set fair market value for your items.

Here’s a handy resource guide provided by the IRS to help you do so.

Consult a qualified tax professional with any questions you might have regarding charitable donations.

Items we cannot accept, due to recall and/or environmental concerns, include:

  • Any item needing repair, except computers

Consult with your area Goodwill store if you have questions about a potential donation. Many communities also offer alternative recycling resources for many of the items we cannot accept like the Solid Waste Agency. Many local landfills have recycling programs for household hazardous waste. Police departments can provide information on safe disposal of weapons and ammunition. Habitat for Humanity re-sale stores may accept your building materials and plumbing fixtures.
