How to Donate to the IRC in Sacramento

Thank you for considering our organization for your donation!

Currently, the physical IRC office is closed due to Covid-19 and all staff are working remotely. If you are interested in donating an item please read all the information:

  • Donations can only be received by appointment. Each donation should be coordinated directly with the Volunteer and Donations Specialist. Please send an email to donatesacramento [at] rescue.org if interested in donating an item.
  • Our team can only receive approved items.
  • Under no circumstance can items be dropped off at our office without confirmed consent from the Volunteer and Donations Specialist!


How the Donation Process works:

Items are approved on a case by case basis. In order to support our team, please include photos of each item, so that we can assess the quality of the item and approve it.

  • Please send an email to donatesacramento [at] rescue.org, if interested in donating an item.
  • Next, someone from the Donations Team will assess and approve the item. The donor will receive a response email from DonateSacramento.
  • Once the donor has received a response, the Donations Team will coordinate the drop off or pick up with the Volunteer and Donations Specialist.
  • From there, the Volunteer and Donations Specialist will reach out directly to the donor and coordinate next steps.
