Claim a Tax Deduction* When you Donate to NKS in Columbus, Lancaster, Dayton, or Any of the Surrounding Communities

Tax Deduction Donate OhioIt’s easy and stress-free to claim a tax deduction* when you donate to National Kidney Services (NKS). As a federally approved, nonprofit organization, all donations of used clothing and household items are tax deductible*. Our charity in the Columbus area gladly welcomes a wide variety of items, including men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel, electronics, small furniture, small appliances, books, toys, decorative items, antiques, and more.

We encourage our donors to keep a record of the items they donate by making an inventory list and noting each item’s original value (if this information is available), its current condition, and an estimate of the item’s value at the time you donate it. You can estimate the value of your contributions by using our online guide, or you can refer to the IRS guidelines. If you choose to have NKS pick up your donations for free, a tax receipt will be available from the truck driver. Donors who prefer to drop off their donations at Ohio Thrift stores can obtain a tax receipt at these locations. It’s just that easy to claim a tax deduction* when you donate to our charity!

To arrange a complimentary donation pickup, call 614-351-2900 or sign up online to be added to the call list for our standard weekday collections. We also offer expedited collections and special Saturday collections upon request. All of the proceeds generated from your donations of used items go directly to the National Kidney Foundation and its efforts to increase awareness about chronic kidney disease.
