During certain times of the year, it is easy to get people excited for giving. Running clothing drives and fundraisers during the Christmas holiday season is sure to bee a huge hit and bring in plenty of donations. While this a great way to stock up on much needed items for low income families, it does not always help these causes throughout the whole year.
If you don’t feel like simply giving your things away for free, there are charities and programs that you can deduct when you file your annual taxes. Goodwill Industries is one of the largest organizations accepting donations that can be deducted. Donations to Goodwill Industries are sold in their stores all across the country and help fund training programs for unskilled workers, education for needy families and a lot more.
