The Donation Process and Value Guide
When making your donation, you will be required to
fill out a form indicating what you are donating and the estimated value
of your donation. Please choose a value within this range that is in
keeping with your item’s relative age and quality.
A receipt for your items may be obtained in one of three ways:
- If you drop off a donation at a local Salvation
Army Family Thrift Store or Corps (worship and community center), the
clerk or receptionist will be happy to provide you with a receipt.
- If your items are dropped off at an unattended
Salvation Army drop-box, an itemized list is required to receive a
receipt. Your local Salvation Army Corps or Family Thrift Store can have
a receipt made out for you once you bring this list to them. Please
itemize your donations with the value next to them to claim them for
your taxes. Your tax consultant will be the best resource for advice on
how to itemize and submit this information.
- If you have your donations picked up, the truck driver will provide you with a receipt.
