Where PickUpMyDonation Started

In 2012, we recognized a problem.  Donating was a daunting task that took many phone calls, leaving messages, coordinating, and could even be costly. Not every piece of furniture you bought for your first apartment do you still want today.  However, getting those pieces out of your home took a lot work.  You do not want to throw something away that still has some value.  PickUpMyDonation was created to make the donation to nonprofits process as easy and accessible as possible.  You can donate right from your phone, computer, or iPad using our cloud-based system.

Over the years, PickUpMyDonation has reached $80,000,000 in value for nonprofit organizations.  We wanted to make donating free and easy.  That is when we realized nonprofits could benefit from us as well!  Many nonprofit organizations are willing to pick up donations for free, however, it can be difficult to connect with them.  We make the process as simple as possible to get your items donated as quickly as we can.  PickUpMyDonation has over 8,000 partners across the country ready to pick up your items to make this possible.

How Donating Works

The process is quick and easy.  Simply,

  1. Go to pickupmydonation.com
  2. Enter your zip code
  3. Select either Free Pickup or Priority Pickup
  4. Indicate what you would like to donate and answer a couple of questions.
  5. Provide your contact information.
  6. Provide Potential Pickup dates/times that would work for you.
  7. Submit your pickup request and wait to be contacted!

Sometimes, a nonprofit is not able to pick up your items for free.  This could be because your location is too far, there may be too many requests in the area, or they may not be able to sell the donation in store.  This is where Priority Pickup comes in as an excellent second option for donors.  Priority Pickup is also a great option for those who need their items gone sooner rather than later.  If you choose to do Priority Pickup, a professional moving company such as College Hunks Hauling Junk or 1-800-Got-Junk will come pick your items up for a fee.  They will take your items to a local thrift store and donate it for you.  You will also be given a donation receipt to right off for tax purposes!

How could we help you?

If you are a non-profit operating a thrift business, this can be a major opportunity to up your donations.  PickUpMyDonation receives over 10,000 donation requests a month and it is increasing monthly.  On average, our Exclusive Partners gain $10,000 – $15,000 in monthly revenue from pickupmydonation.com.  Along with this benefit, our partners tend to see an increase in quality of donations.  This brings more people into the store looking for quality furniture which also leads to an increase in revenue.
