Donate Items to The Spring Stores

Do you have items to donate? The Spring graciously accepts furniture, household items, clothing, and assorted goods.

Whether you are donating or buying, the net proceeds support victims of domestic violence and the services needed to keep them and their children safe. When you buy from one of The Spring thrift stores or make tax-deductible donations of gently-used clothing, furniture, and household items, you help end domestic violence in our community in two ways:

  • Survivors benefit from items donated to the thrift store and often are able to build a career wardrobe for an important job interview or select home goods and furnishings to help them rebuild a new home.
  • Items are sold to the public and 100% of the net proceeds support our emergency shelter, outreach services and other programming.

Please bring your donations to The Spring Thrift & Donation Center

How to Value Your Donations

IRS GUIDELINES: If you itemize deductions on your federal tax return, you may be entitled to claim a charitable deduction for your Spring of Tampa Bay 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. To assess “fair market value” for your donations, consult a local tax advisor who should be familiar with market values in your region.
