Give Something Good, Do Something Great
Your donations have the power to create jobs.

Your car can help someone move forward! Goodwill accepts car, truck, boat, or RV donations in any condition. Proceeds from the sale of the vehicle will help fund our job training and placement programs across Southern Oregon and Northern California.
It’s easy — any vehicle, any condition. You can call or fill out a form online, and our donation partners will make arrangements to tow the vehicle. You get a form for your taxes and the satisfaction of helping someone with a barrier to employment get job training. Call 844-505-4663, or visit the website of our car donation partner to donate your car to Southern Oregon Goodwill today!
Federal law permits Goodwill donors to claim tax deductions for donated clothing and household items in good, used condition or better. If you’re unsure whether your item qualifies for a tax deduction, then consider this: if you would give it to a relative or friend, then the item is most likely in good condition and is appropriate to donate.
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service requires donors to value their own items when filing their tax returns.
