ARE MY DONATIONS TAX DEDUCTIBLE?

 

All items donated are deductible for income tax purposes to the extent allowed by law.  Valuations of gifts in kind are the responsibility of the donor as the Dragonfly Thrift Boutique does not set a valuation on your donation.  It is up to you to assign a value to your item.   For your records, the Dragonfly Thrift Boutique Employer Identification Number (EIN) is 27-0193483. 

 

The Dragonfly Thrift Boutique will provide a donation receipt to donors for income tax purposes.  Receiving donations of product valued greater than $500 requires donors to complete IRS Form 8283.  https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/about-form-8283.

DONATIONS THAT ARE NOT ACCEPT AT THE DRAGONFLY THRIFT BOUTIQUE?

 

It is hard to say “no thank you: to a donation when those donations help to fund LEAP programs.  However, we do need to refuse some items and may be refused because it costs more to transport, repair or refurbish than it can be sold for in our store.  Our workers are trained to know what we can and cannot accept, and will help guide you to other possibilities for donations we cannot use.
