Your donations to Goodwill help fund What should you donate? for people who face different barriers to employment. Each year, Goodwill helps thousands of people in their journey to find stable employment. Goodwill also helps to create a healthier planet by recycling and repurposing donated items that do not get sold.
Federal law permits Goodwill donors to claim tax deductions for many financial contributions and donated items. If you are unsure whether your item qualifies for a tax deduction, ask yourself if you would give it to a relative or friend. If so, the item is most likely in good enough condition and is appropriate to donate and claim the deduction. It is up to you and the individual who prepares your taxes to determine the value of your donations.
