In-Kind Donations


 In-kind donations of goods and services are extremely valuable to the Center, enabling the YRCC to fulfill its mission of "providing services and programs that promote health and wellness, and enhance the  quality of life throughout the greater community." There are many ways  you can donate to the YRCC's work.

1 - Donate your unused items for resale in the YRCC thrift store.
2 - Donate food for a special event, or items for YRCC raffles and other fund-raisers.
3 - Donate cleaning supplies and equipment.
4 - Donate office supplies and equipment.

Although in-kind donations are not monetary donations they are not without value. The value of an item you donate is determined by  you and your tax advisor. To provide you with guidance on the value of  commonly donated items, we have provided some sample Item Values on this page. Donors are also advised to consult with their tax advisor and to  refer to IRS Publication 526 - Charitable Contributions. The YRCC will issue a receipt for the amount you determine for the donation within IRS guidelines. Unless otherwise requested, the receipt will be sent to you via email.
