Closing your business and considering liquidation? You may be able to save more with a tax credit when you donate inventory to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

Whether you manage a small business or a large import warehouse, you could save your organization thousands of dollars by donating business inventory to charity. See the success of one of our previous donors, Royola Pacific!

Benefits of Donating

  • Support Affordable Housing with Habitat for Humanity
  • Share Valuable Goods with Your Community
  • Earn a Tax Credit
  • Reduce Waste Stream to Landfills

Support Affordable Housing

When you make a charitable donation of inventory to ReStore, the profits from the sale of that inventory directly support Habitat for Humanity. Whether our partnership is short-term or ongoing, it will have a big impact at Habitat. Bulk donations of all sizes support our efforts to build and preserve affordable housing in the Bay Area.

Share Valuable Goods

ReStore takes pride in offering high-quality and affordable home improvement goods to our community. When your business donates unsold inventory, you’re creating opportunities for families and individuals to furnish their homes and take on home improvement projects, while saving money for necessities.

Tax Credits

When you donate inventory, you may be able to receive significant tax credits for the value of your donation. The potential savings here are likely greater than what a liquidator would pay for those same goods.

As a registered nonprofit, Habitat for Humanity can provide the necessary paperwork to claim the value of the donation. However, donors are responsible for completing the necessary tax forms to take advantage of their tax write-off.*

Reduce Waste

The logistics of reuse can be complicated, but ReStore makes it a quick and painless process for our commercial donors. In most cases, ReStore will pick up inventory directly from your site and provide the peace of mind that the great stuff you’ve got is going to people who can put it to use.

How to Donate Inventory

To donate, contact our Commercial Donations team at commercial@habitatebsv.org. Please provide the name and location of your organization in your correspondence.

ReStore will work with you to arrange a site visit to evaluate suitability of the inventory. Once we can confirm the excess inventory fits our criteria, we will establish a timeline for transporting the goods to our stores.
