Request a Pick-Up
We provide donation pick-up services to Alameda, Contra Costa and Santa Clara counties (some exclusions apply). Although our pick-up service is free, please consider making an optional $15 donation to assist us with transportation costs. Donations of any amount are appreciated and enable Habitat to do more for the community! To schedule a pick-up, please click the “Request Pick-Up” button below or call our donations hotline at (510) 803-3343.
Note: We request that all donations be brought out to the curbside, into your driveway, or to an easily accessible part of your garage. Our pick-up staff cannot enter your home to retrieve items due to liability concerns.
Donating goods to the ReStore could qualify you for a tax deduction. Please see the resources below, in order to find out if your donation is tax-deductible.
The Donor is advised that if a tax deduction on a gift is to be taken, the Internal Revenue Service has regulations for filing tax-deductible contributions valued at $250 or more. Please see the following information to help determine whether or not your donation is tax-deductible. If the value of the donation is greater than $5,000, an independent appraisal is required and Habitat staff is required to sign the IRS Form 8283 acknowledging receipt of the gift. To be acceptable to the IRS, the appraisal must be made no more than 60 days before the date of the contribution and before the due date of the tax return.
The Donor is asked to present the appraisal and completed IRS Form 8283 to Habitat at the time of the gift. The Form will be returned to the Donor with proper signature. For additional information see Determining the Value of Donated Property, Charitable Contributions, and a listing of appraisers.
