You can donate almost anything to Goodwill! You can donate stuff, money, recycling, computers and other e-waste. However, before you make your next donation, please scan the list of items we are unable to accept. Among those items that should not be donated are: televisions, household chemicals, building material and other broken or unusable items. This information is important because we rely 100% on your donations to fund the free programs and services we offer to thousands of New Mexicans, New Mexico Veterans and their families. By communicating which items we are not able to accept we can avoid hazardous situations and additional costs associated with waste management.
Let’s take a look at what you can donate…
Stuff - "stuff" consists of the random collection of toys, clothing, shoes, accessories, knick-knacks, old tennis rackets, ab-blasters, books, furniture and unwanted items that are creating a small hoard in your home.
Money - This type of donation is convenient and now even easier with our new online donation tool. Many people find that a one-time or a recurring monetary donation is the most efficient way to express their support of Goodwill's mission.
Recycling - Often overlooked is donating your recycling. This action is a home-run for "Intentional Living". Not only are you advocating for the environment but also making a valuable contribution to the mission of Goodwill. Recycling items could include cardboard, paper, metals, and unusable clothing or textiles.
Computers and E-Waste - Goodwill Industries of New Mexico has partnered with Dell through the Dell Reconnect program. Dell Reconnect is a free recycling program where consumers can responsibly recycle all brands of unwanted computers, other computer equipment, print cartridges, and phones in any condition.
Remember, all donations made online, at a donation location or from a home pick-up are tax-deductible, and you will receive a donation receipt.
