Spring Cleaning

Question: I've been doing some Spring cleaning. How I can put my used items to good use?

Many charities are equally grateful to receive gifts of cash as they are donated goods. We recommend that you use our site as a tool to find a well-run charity in your region. Then, contact that charity directly, using the information we provide, to determine if the organization is interested in receiving your goods. Alternatively, you can have a garage sale, turn your used items into cash and then donate those funds directly to a worthy charity.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
