BENEFITS

There are several benefits to businesses and individuals donating items to the Habitat ReStore.

First, the proceeds for the sale of those items goes into Habitat for Humanity Building Fund.  There isn’t any other place where an unused recliner or an extra box of unused tile can help build a house, instead of gathering dust.

Second, donations to the ReStore are often tax deductible.  Under IRS Regulations, the ReStore qualifies as a 501 (c)(3) organization.  Be sure to ask for a receipt when you donate items to the ReStore.  Receipts for donations are issued at the store at time of donation or by the driver if this is a pick-up.  Check with your accountant to make sure you understand the IRS regulations and deduction limitations.

Third, donating items to the ReStore means your company name and logo will be displayed as appropriate in our donor and sponsor lists.  Partnering with Habitat either through the ReStore on a build, will help create a positive image for your company.

Lastly, donations of items to the ReStore help reduce the amount of material being sent to the landfill.

If you have any questions regarding the benefits of donating, please call the store at 970 423 7445 or email at restoremanager@summithabitat.org.
