Dropping Off Donations

Thanks to your generosity, our clothing donation bins are full to overflowing once again! Through the rest of December, our regular Thursday drop-off-donations hours are closed. We will reopen our drop-off hours in January, but our hours will change. Beginning Tuesday, January 3, 2017, our donation hours will be Tuesdays from 10 a.m. till noon. Please remember that, due to insurance restrictions, our staff is not allowed to lift more than 5 lbs., so please pack your donation bags lightly. Additionally, please note that our storage space is limited. If you have more than three bags of clothing to donate, please consider donating to Goodwill or St. Vincent de Paul instead, as they support our clients as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is Community Works a non-profit?
Yes. Community Works is a a 501(c)(3), non-profit, tax-exempt, charitable corporation. We are funded by government and private grants, the United Way, and by the generosity of community members across the Rogue Valley.

Q: Is my donation or cash gift tax deductible?
Yes, your donation gift is tax deductible. You will receive a thank you letter for all donations listing our tax ID number for tax purposes. When you make an in-kind contribution, be sure to ask for an in-kind contribution form. This form will be your receipt for tax purposes. Community Works will not place a value on your in-kind donation for the purposes of this form; however, please note that if you do not put a value on your donation, it cannot be used as a tax deduction.

Q: Does Community Works accept in-kind gifts, gifts that are not cash, such as clothing, household items, or furniture?
We accept new and gently used gifts of clothing and bedding, and new pillows and toiletries to help our clients build new lives. We do not accept most household goods and only accept furniture on a case-by-case and as-needed basis; however, Community Works also partners with Goodwill. Goodwill gives Community Works vouchers for our clients to go shopping for free!  In return we send all of our extra in-kind contributions to Goodwill.

Q: Suppose I want to designate my gift to a particular program or service?
Unrestricted gifts allow Community Works maximum flexibility in allocating resources where they are most needed. These decisions are made by the senior executive staff and the Board of Directors.
