Giving to Goodwill

Donating unneeded clothes, shoes and household items to Goodwill is a great way to make room for new things – and make a positive impact on our community. On average, 90% of every dollar Goodwill spends is channeled directly into employment and training programs that help people get to work.

Donating at Goodwill's Donation Xpress Centers is easy - learn more about how this new donation concept is helping to make positive positive changes in our community. Watch this video.

Goodwill now has a Mobile App which makes it easy to find the nearest donation center on your cell phone or other mobile device. Check it out here.

Taxes and your donation

Under federal law, Goodwill donors can claim tax deductions for many financial contributions and for donated clothing and household items that are in good condition or better. Unsure whether your item qualifies? If you'd give it to a relative or friend, then it's most likely appropriate to donate.

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service requires donors to value their items when filing taxes. To help you, Goodwill Industries International has compiled a list of commonly donated items. The values in this guide are only estimations – and they assume donated items are in good condition.
