In-Kind Donation Procedures:

The IRC in San Jose kindly asks that interested community members contact us to discuss potential donations or donation drives to assure our collective efforts are most impactful.

The IRC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and as such donations can be tax deductible. After donating an item, the IRC will send you a donor receipt with our Tax ID information and a record of the items you donated. The IRC cannot place a value on the items you donated, unless a purchase receipt is included with the donation of new items.
