Make Your Tax-Deductible End-of-Year Donations to ReStore Now!

2020 is almost over, and that means time is running out for you to make your tax-deductible donation to ReStore! Whether you’re a homeowner looking to clean out your basement workshop, a remodeler looking to recycle a kitchen full of cabinets and appliances, or a business with excess inventory you need gone, you’ve got to get those donations in by the end of the year to reap the tax benefits.

What can you donate?

ReStore accepts new and gently-used items like tools, building materials, appliances, home goods, and even furniture. Check our donation guidelines to see if your items fit the bill. If you have additional questions about your items give us a call or use the contact us tool.

How to get a tax write-off for your ReStore donation

Your ReStore donation is tax deductible! Here's how to do it:

  • Keep track of your donated items. You'll use this to report your itemized donations to the IRS when you file your taxes.

  • Check out the ReStore Donation Value Guide to find out how much your donated items are worth.

  • When you bring your donation to our stores, ask for a receipt for your donation if one isn't offered to you. The IRS requires proof that you donated the items you itemized.

  • Itemize your donations when you file your taxes before the 2021 tax deadline (Thursday, April 15).

For more information on claiming tax deductions for your ReStore donations, read our Guide to Donating.

Making a donation

The donation process has changed a little bit because of COVID-19. When you come to ReStore to make a donation, please stay in your car and the staff and volunteers will unload the items for you. They’ll then get you a receipt for tax purposes.
