Donations to The Cat Adoption Team Thrift Store are eligible for a tax-deductible receipt. (Our shelter is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.)
However, we are not able to take every item for donation. We respectfully request usable items.
Unusable goods must be disposed of at a high cost to the store; this takes money away from the shelter.
The Thrift Store welcomes your gently used, new, and collectible items for sale in our store. All proceeds go to benefit the CAT shelter and our mission.
Donations are approved on-site only and during business hours.
If you itemize deductions on your federal tax return, you are entitled to claim a charitable deduction for your donations. According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), a taxpayer can deduct the fair market value of clothing, household goods, used furniture, shoes, books and so forth. Fair market value is the price a willing buyer would pay for them. Value usually depends on the condition of the item. By law, a charity cannot tell you what your donated items are worth. This is something you must do yourself.
