Donations help support the mission of Goodwill. Your goodwill does not stop there, donations keep unwanted goods out of landfills. Bring new or gently used items to a Goodwill store, DonationXpress (attended donation center) or clothing bin.
Recovering the value of your donated goods allows Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey to empower individuals through innovative services for employment, mental health, education, housing and more. Learn about our programs to see how your contributions impact the community and provide people with an opportunity to participate and contribute in all aspects of a productive life.
You can also help us sustain our environment by donating your clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, luggage, home goods, books, music, movies and small working electronics. The re-purposing of usable items through Goodwill retail stores diverted more than 117 million pounds of textiles and household goods out of landfills in 2015, up from 112 million pounds in 2014. Check out our Donation Guide for a full list of items we can and cannot accept.
Giving to Goodwill benefits you as well as our clients. Since Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, your donations are tax-deductible. Drop items off at any of our retail stores or attended donation centers and ask for a tax receipt. You can also contact us to inquire about receipts for bin drop-offs.
Donate today and join us in our mission to empower individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment to gain independence through the power of work. Every dress, tie, flat screen TV or toaster you give brings someone one step closer to achieving their full potential. There has never been a better reason to clean out your closet.
