Miscellaneous Donation

The Donation Value Guide below helps you determine the approximate tax-deductible value of some of the more commonly donated items. It includes low and high estimates. Please choose a value within this range that reflects your item’s relative age and quality. 

The Salvation Army does not set a valuation on your donation. It’s up to you to assign a value to your item. For professional advice, please consult your tax advisor.

PLEASE NOTE: This list is not all-inclusive, and not all items are accepted at every location. If you have questions about your donation, your local Salvation Army Family Store will be happy to help you. 

Drop Off or Pick Up?

It helps us even more if you can drop off your items. But, if you need us to, we can pick them up for you. In either case, simply call 1-800-SA-TRUCK or find your nearest drop-off location here.
