EARN A TAX DEDUCTION AT YEAR END BY DONATING TO GOODWILL
Individuals can earn a tax deduction for 2017 by donating items or financial support to Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania before the end of the year. In addition to traditional donations such as clothing, housewares, books, furniture and jewelry, Goodwill also needs donations of cars, computers and other electronic equipment.
“Donations can slow down at this time of year because people are so busy with holiday activities and traveling,” said Mike Smith, Goodwill SWPA’s President/CEO. “We hope this reminder near the end of the year about the tax benefits of donating to Goodwill will motivate people to help us out. We really need donations right now because our stores are busier than ever.”
Material donations may be dropped off at any Goodwill store. Find the nearest location at www.goodwillswpa.org.
Financial donations may also be made in many different ways that are convenient to donors. More information can be found at www.goodwillswpa.org/donate-money.
Checks may also be mailed to Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania, Attn: Development Office, 118 52nd Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15201. Donors can also text EMPOWERS to 56512 to easily make a gift via a mobile phone.
To donate a vehicle, just call the Goodwill Auto Donation program at 1-888-30-40-CAR (1-888-304-0227), or visit www.goodwillswpa.org/donate-a-car .
"We greatly appreciate all of the generous support we receive from the community. We definitely work hard to put your gifts to good use helping to change lives through the power of work!” Mr. Smith said.
