In-kind contributions are gifts of tangible goods instead of money. Examples include brand new, useful items or gently used items, such as bookshelves, tables, chairs and dishes. Items must be clean, in working condition and deemed usable by Milestone before they can be accepted. An In-Kind List describes acceptable and unacceptable goods.
If accepted, the donor must assess the item’s value and submit an In-kind Contribution Form. In-kind contributions are tax deductible. The donor is responsible for all claims on the value of the item submitted to the IRS.
