FAQ

Questions about Donations

Answers

Do I need to do anything to my clothes before donating?

If possible, please launder and/or dry clean items prior to donating.

What clothing do you accept?

Currently, we are seeking high-end women’s clothing that is of new or nearly new quality, but will accept and evaluate all donations.

Why do you only accept women’s clothes?

We are starting with women’s clothing for our first season and hope to expand our offerings in the future.

I have clothes that are not on the “favorite brands” list. Can you still use them?

Yes! Our favorites are brands that we know will have good resale value, but all clothing is accepted and used either for sale at Rehope Market or donated to another charity.

Is there a way to find out how much my clothes are worth prior to donating?

The IRS has a clothing valuation list to give an idea of the value, but we do not have a way to confirm this with you. (link)

Why don’t I see all the clothes I donated for sale on Rehope Market? 

Some clothing may be beautiful, but have faded some or be a style that is not sought after. If we cannot use it, we donate it on to other organizations to be used or upcycled.

How do you decide which clothes to use?

Each article of clothing is reviewed using our “Quality Checklist” (link)

What happens to clothes you cannot use?

If we cannot use it, we see if any of the women at Restoration House or one of our friend organizations in KC need it or can use it to be upcycled.

If you cannot use all my items, can I get it back?

Unfortunately, once it is donated and processed, we are unable to return donated goods.

Will I get a tax receipt for a donation to Rehope Market? 

Yes! We are able to provide a tax receipt by email within two weeks of your donation if requested, as well as a year end total receipt for your tax purposes. Simply let us know at the time of the donation.

Are you a consignment program? Can I make money by donating product?

We are only accepting donations at this time.

Where do I drop off my donations?

Currently we have two locations: in Greenwood at 806 W Main Street and in Kansas City at our offices 400 West Meyer Boulevard. Check with our offices for a clothing drive happening in your neighborhood.  

I accidentally left my earrings in the pocket I just donated? What do I do?

We cannot accept responsibility for any items found in clothing or purses, but there is a lost and found that we keep items in for 60 days after being found. Call us and we will check for you!
