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. Donate overstock, or clear a whole warehouse – every bit helps. See the success of one of our previous donors, Royola Pacific!
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.
So, what are the benefits?
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 your partnership with ReStore is short-term or ongoing, it will have a big impact. Bulk donations of all sizes support our efforts to create more housing opportunity in the Bay Area through building, preservation, and education.
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.
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 part of Habitat for Humanity, a registered nonprofit, ReStore 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 write-off.*
The logistics of reuse can be complicated, but ReStore makes it a quick and painless process for our business partners. 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.
where to start 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.
