Spring Cleaning

“One person’s trash can be another person’s treasure.”

That set of used cutlery that you don’t know what to do with, those clothes that are just taking space in your closet, that relic of a TV (you mean they weren't always flat?) collecting dust in a corner. Yep, it is that time of year again…spring! And with it comes a yearly ritual for many…cleaning.

While you may not know what to do with certain items you own, many charitable organizations could put them to good use and help those in need. Not only does this help you create more space in your home by donating these things that you aren't using, you also get to benefit from tax deductions. Why not get an early start this year and save some money on your 2013 tax return!

Our site can serve as a valuable tool to find charities that accept these in-kind donations.

Also, here is Charity Navigator’s Guide To Donating Noncash Items. 

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 >>
