DONATING FURNITURE

WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING FURNITURE DONATIONS.  WE WILL BEGIN ACCEPTING FURNITURE FOR OUR 2022 D-D-D EVENT IN SEPTEMBER.  

We accept new and gently used furniture, home furnishings and accessories for our sale from early September through mid-May.  The items we collect throughout the year will be displayed by our designers and sold at the event.

 

To get started, please complete our on-line Furniture Donation Form.

We offer pick up for a modest fee, depending on your location.

 

We reserve the right to refuse any items that are not in salable condition.  We ask that all items for pick up are easily accessible for our drivers, either in a garage or front of the house.  We cannot accept furniture that has been stored in unfinished basements. 

After items are reviewed by our designers, we will arrange a pick-up – either by SFAH staff or a moving company we work with throughout the year.   

TAX TIPS

Your donation to the furniture sale and/or auction will ensure that no child is denied an opportunity to attend camp because of a family's inability to pay.  We thank you for your generosity!  As a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization, you will be provided with a receipt of your donated items for your taxes.  We do not provide values for your donations.

The total value of your donation is tax deductible within the limits of the law. The Internal Revenue Code permits taxpayers that itemize their deductions to deduct the fair market value of contributed merchandise for income tax purposes. 

 

It is the obligation of donor to determine the actual value of articles contributed.  If you believe the value of your contribution is substantial, you should have the merchandise comprising your contribution evaluated by a qualified appraiser and consult a tax advisor. 

 

The Southampton Fresh Air Home cannot sign any IRS tax documents attesting to the value of your donation without a qualified appraisal. IRS tax forms and accompanying appraisals must be submitted to the Home for signature prior to the date of the sale following your donation — this year, June 4, 2022.

Furniture in excellent condition

FURNITURE PICK-UPS AND DROP-OFFS

SFAH schedules furniture pick-ups done by our in-house staff on Monday's and Friday's. We offer pick-up for a modest fee depending on your location and donation. If your donation is larger, or in New York City, we may engage B&N Moving who provide pick-ups five days a week according to their schedule and availability.  Pick-ups are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis, and are typically booked two to three weeks in advance.  Day of pick-ups are unfortunately not possible.

We accept items to be dropped-off by appointment only, also on Monday's and Friday's.  It is important that we are able to accommodate each donor with adequate assistance during your drop off. Therefore, we kindly request ample notice of what items we should expect so that we are properly staffed to assist you.
