Thank You For Donating to Goodwill!
After donating, where can I obtain a receipt?
Goodwill provides electronic (or paper, whichever you prefer) donation receipts; stating we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. You can obtain a receipt after donating, the following ways:
Goodwill Retail Store and Donation Centers
When you drop off items to any of our 8 Retail Store & Donation Center locations during operating hours, you can obtain a receipt through the dock attendant.
Goodwill Free Standing Bins
After donating to one of our free-standing bins that are conveniently located around the community, simply scan the QR code located on the side of the bin to access our receipt portal. We ask that you only donate smaller items, like clothing, books or housewares to those bins.
Donation Drive or Goodwill At Your Door Pick-Up
**If you have donated to a donation drive or a home pick up, you can use the form below to enter in your donations and a receipt will be emailed to you.
