In accordance with IRS regulations, in-kind donations are tax-deductible up to the “fair market value” of the item. Fair market value is the price a willing, knowledgeable buyer would pay a willing, knowledgeable seller when neither has to buy or sell. By law, a charity cannot tell you what your donated items are worth; you must assess the value. Consult a tax advisor or appraiser to help you determine the familiar with market value in your region.

The Center is happy to provide a receipt and/or other substantiation for your in-kind contributions.
