Public donations are the lifeblood of Goodwill's retail operation. We accept gently used clothing, furniture, housewares, working electronics and many other items, then resell them to help fund our employment, job training and placement services for people with disabilities and disadvantages. Please check our Donation Guidelines & FAQ's for a complete list of items we do and do not accept. You may take your donations to the nearest attended Donation Center, arrange a pick-up, or find one of our donation bins in your neighborhood.
If you believe the value of your donation is over $5,000, and if you plan to claim a charitable tax deduction for your donation, you may need to have Goodwill complete certain tax forms to be able to claim a charitable deduction. Before making a donation of that value, please call Goodwill at (202) 636-4225 and ask to speak to Goodwill’s Director of Development.
