Valuing Your Donations

How to value your donation

How much is my donation worth? To people looking to improve their lives through jobs, your donation of goods means the world. Proceeds from the sale of donated items fund job training and education that helps thousands of people a year find and keep good jobs.

Your donations also benefit you. Because Goodwill is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, you can receive a tax deduction for donations of goods and cash. The Internal Revenue Service offers guidelines for placing a value on used clothing, furniture, lamps, books and other materials, which you can find here.

Your donations allow us to do what we do, and we can’t thank you enough.
