Why Donate?

Goodwill Central Coast transforms donations into meaningful jobs throughout our communities. In a typical year, we receive more than 630,000 donations, totaling more than 25 million pounds of clothing and household items. In turn we divert more than 17 million pounds from landfills, helping preserve and protect the Central Coast landscape. Your donations help fund programs that remove obstacles to employment and strengthen families through economic self-sufficiency.

Tax Deductions

Anyone who donates money and/or clothing and household items in “good” condition or better is entitled to a tax deduction, according to federal law.
