Join the Donate Movement!
When you donate to Goodwill, you’re helping people find jobs. The revenue earned from the sale of donated items helps fund job-training and employment programs in Southwestern Michigan and helps people develop the skills they need to find good jobs.
Your donation of used goods can make a difference for people in your community, and also help make a healthier planet as well.
Federal law permits Goodwill donors to claim tax deductions for many financial contributions and for donated clothing and household items in good, used condition or better. The U.S. Internal Revenue Service requires donors to value their items when filing their tax returns. To help guide you, we have compiled commonly donated items in a Donation Value Guide below. (Please Note: Our valuation guide assumes the donated items are in good condition and that these are estimated values.)
We are pleased to accept the following items:
Large Item Donations (Couches, Dressers, Large Tables, etc.)
The Corporate Office (Alcott Street), West Main (Kalamazoo), Three Rivers, Benton Harbor and Sturgis stores all handle your large donations during store business hours. Click here to view our Store Locations and Hours.
Please do not leave items outside our donation centers or stores after hours! They become exposed to the elements and may be damaged, vandalized, or stolen.
No, Thank You:
Sometimes we may decline a donation if in our judgment it is hazardous or in non-saleable condition. Severely damaged or soiled items cannot be sold and simply cost us money to dispose of. Non-functioning items such as appliances cost us more to transport and repair than they can be sold for in our stores. We are unable to accept the following items:
- Large Appliances: Refrigerators, Stoves, etc. (Except at our Three Rivers Store)
- Halogen floor lamps
- Hazardous household chemicals,paint, etc.
- Food and Perishable Products
- Pianos and Organs
- Drop-down Side Cribs
- Furniture in poor condition
- Metal bed springs
- Tires, Car Batteries
