Donating with Us
Donations are accepted year-round Monday through Saturday. Donations are not accepted on Sunday. You can drop off donations at your local Deseret Industries store or take your donations to one of our convenient container locations (call the store nearest you for locations). Learn more about our Donation Guidelines.
How Donations Benefit Others
Your donations help in multiple ways. Thanks to all those who donate, we are able to:
- Sell items at low prices to the community.
- Provide items to community partners and other charities.
- Use sales revenue to pay for training of thousands of individuals.
- Provide humanitarian assistance worldwide.
- Provide volunteer opportunities for others.
When you donate during regular donation hours, an attendant will offer you a donation receipt to keep for your tax records.
For more information, please refer to IRS Publication 526. If you have additional questions, please contact your tax professional.
Donating with us helps to improve the lives of many in your community and thousands all over the world. Please consider donating to your local DI and join in this effort to help one another.
For the Leaders
Encourage those in your ward and community to consider donating their lightly used or new items to your nearest DI location. Collecting donations can even be a great ward or stake project.
