Around 90% of our wealth is tied up in stuff – a lot of which we no longer need or want. In fact, Americans are currently spending $22 billion to use over 78 square miles of extra storage space. That's enough to cover the island of Manhattan three times. Now it's easy to help our cause with items you no longer need.HOW IT WORKS
With help from our partner, iDonate, we can now accept items like cars, boats, phones, stocks and everything in between and easily turn them into cash to change the lives of those in need.
It's really a piece of cake. We do all the hard work for you.
Select the type of item you want donate and answer a few simple questions.
We provide the shipping label or will contact you to arrange picking up the item.
We'll send you a tax receipt letting you know the impact you made.
Here's to working together to make a difference in the world.
Did you know that used car sales total $264 billion every year?
Consider the following:
1. Donating your car can save you on taxes. When you donate your car, the value of your car is tax-deductible - so donating may be a great way to save on taxes at the end of the year.
2. Donating your car is a fast and easy way to get rid of something you no longer use. In most cases, when you donate your car, it can be picked up within 48 hours.
3. Donating your car is another way you can support our work. When you donate your car, we are able to liquidate it and turn it into much needed funds.
Are you planning to get a new vehicle soon? Have you considered donating your old car instead of trading it in? We’d love to have one of our team talk with you about the benefits of donating. Please feel free to reach out. Our team is standing by to speak with you, or if you are ready to give now, simply complete the form below.
What do you get as a gift for someone when you don't really know what to get? A gift card! As a result, many of us have a lot of valuable gift cards floating around.
Often, we use most of the card’s value but end up with a “stranded” balance – one that never gets cashed in.
What if there were a way to donate the balance of your unused gift cards to charity? Now, through our iDonate giving platform, you can. If you have a gift card with a balance of $15 or more, it's simple and easy to donate…you can do it online in seconds.
So open up that purse or wallet, find those old gift cards, and turn them into impact today!
Technology changes fast. New models come out regularly that are smaller, lighter, faster, and just plain better. This is why millions of cell phones and other electronic devices accumulate in desk drawers, closets, and storerooms awaiting eventual disposal. Less than 1 percent of these phones are recycled anually.
So the question is, what do you do with all of your outdated electronic stuff?
Now, through the iDonate giving platform, you can donate it!
Imagine the impact that your old phone, tablet or e-reader can have on our organization – not to mention the environment.
But before you send us that old console TV, keep in mind that not everything can be donated.
Here's a short list of things that we’d love to receive:
All personal data on donated devices is destroyed. If you are unsure about the electronics that you would like to donate, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. The iDonate team team is standing by ready to help you.
If you are ready to donate your item, simply follow the steps below, complete the form, and we’ll turn your old electronics into impact!
Unwanted jewelry always seems to have a story—whether it was given by a great aunt, left as part of an estate, passed down from a grandparent or parent, or given as a very special gift. Yet styles change, personal tastes transform, and these valuable items remained tucked away and rarely used.
Jewelry has material value yet finding a person to pay for that value can be hard.
A donation of jewelry can be a great way to honor the person who gave you the item or an excellent way to put the sparsely used piece back into use. That diamond pendant or bracelet can have great impact when it is donated. Through the iDonate platform, we can take that rarely worn jewelry piece and turn it into more impact.
Go ahead, dust off those rarely worn items and see the impact they can have. If you are not sure of the value, our team is standing by to help.
One of the most effective and efficient ways to donate is by giving stock. Donating stock allows you to double up on the tax benefits through a current year charitable tax deduction and the avoidance of capital gains taxes related to appreciated stock values.
Using the form below, you can see an example of the tax savings you could realize. If you are ready to donate stock, put in your information and click continue. A Letter of Authority/Transfer Certificate will be generated for you to send to your broker and our partner iDonate.
Our partner iDonate will assist with the transfer paperwork and then forward the proceeds from the donation to us.
Many investors have the heart to give to charity but feel hindered by their limited cash flow, noncash assets, and the taxation of their investments.
Through our partner iDonate, we now have a solution that allows you to give your interest in appreciated real estate (raw land, residential, or commercial) prior to the sale of the assets.
This type of gift allows you to avoid capital gains taxes on the gift - increasing the impact of your gift
The form below provides an illustration of the advantages of donating all or a portion of a piece of real estate prior to a sales transaction being completed.
Fill out the form and iDonate will contact you to further discuss the process for donating real estate.
Owning a business is one of the best tools you have to make a major impact on the world around you. But due to limited cash flow and high taxation of the business, it can be hard to be as charitable as you want.
Now you are able to donate non-voting interest in your business, receive substantial tax deductions, maintain management oversight of your business, and donate more money than you thought possible prior to a major liquidity event.
Use the illustration below to see how giving business interest can reduce your tax burden, how to reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes on gifted interest, and how to convert more of those tax dollars into giving.
Oftentimes in our personal and professional lives we end up with certain assets that we know have value but cannot easily categorize and liquidate.
Whether it was a gift or business-related issue – such as a cancelled order, production mistake, or excess inventory – people end up with a lot of items that they cannot use.
From thousands of bushels of corn to autographed memorabilia to precious metals, there is nothing that our partner iDonate hasn’t seen. In many cases they can take these items, liquidate them, and provide us with the proceeds so we can have more impact.
If you have old or nonworking cell phones that cannot be donated individually, collect at least 20 from friends and family and together they can still be a great donation to help our cause.
