What to donate

Donating to your local Goodwill of Central and Northern Arizona has never been so easy. With 80+ locations, there are now more Goodwill donation centers for you to donate to than ever before! Thanks to your donations and your goodwill, you help support job placement and job preparation at numerous no-cost career centers, all of which are open to anyone in need of help finding a job. This, in turn, helps us fight unemployment by placing thousands of Arizonans in jobs with local employers across Phoenix-metro, Northern Arizona, and Yuma areas.

We never turn down donations and will happily sort and sell just about anything you bring in (besides unsellable, hazardous materials). Without your generous donations, our organization wouldn’t be able to exist, so once again, thank you! To get a better feel for items to donate, view the list below!

Vehicle Donations

Got an old clunker and don’t want to deal with the hassle of selling it? Drop it off at Goodwill and walk away with a tax deduction. In addition to cars, we also accept trucks, vans, RVs, boats, and even airplanes! The best part is, your donation helps fund job preparation which helps individuals in our community become self-sufficient. That’s right, we’ll take that car off your hands, you’ll get a tax deduction, and you help us place individuals in jobs within our community! It’s a win-win!

If you have a vehicle to donate, call us at 602.513.8413. We’ll walk you through the process and let you know where to drop it off. It’s that easy.

NOTE: The Internal Revenue Service recently released two publications on car donations, addressing what individuals and charities need to know when giving or receiving donated vehicles. Publication 4302, A Charity’s Guide to Car Donations (PDF), addresses issues that charities should know when operating a car donation program. Publication 4303, A Donor’s Guide to Car Donations (PDF), targets individuals who decide to hand over their cars. Read more. The publications were released less than a week after the U.S. Senate Finance Committee held a hearing on the governance of nonprofit entities, during which testimony was given on how an auto auction operates.
