What, Where, Why and How
Bring Used Building Materials Back To Life
We work every day to reduce the environmental impact of the demolition of local homes. Our success is due completely to the support of generous donors like you! When you donate materials to The ReUseIt Center, you give them a second life. As a bonus, you save money. The ReUseIt Center is a 501c3 charity, so all donations are tax deductible!
The ReUseIt Center is a supplier of construction-related materials, but we consider materials donations of all varieties depending on our current inventory and the condition and volume of the donation.

Can I get a tax deduction?
The ReUseIt Center is a 501c3 charitable organization. As such, all materials we receive as a donation are eligible for a tax deduction. You will receive a letter of acceptance for your donation within 7 days. The letter is a receipt for your donation and itemizes all the materials we received in as much detail as we can provide. This receipt is needed for you to claim a deduction for donating materials valued at more that $250. For total yearly deductions over $500, you must complete IRS Form 8283 Noncash Charitable Contributions to your tax return. To deduct a charitable contribution over $5,000 you must have a qualified appraisal that itemizes and values the donated property. A qualified appraisal is a document that is written by a certified appraiser with the American Society of Appraisers, Appraisers Association of America or the International Society of Appraisers.
BY IRS LAW, WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ASSIGN A MONETARY VALUE TO THE DONATED MATERIALS – THAT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE DONOR.
