The YDI Foundation is unable to accept small, individual donations or collections of items such as clothing, food or cleaning supplies. The cost to sort, package and distribute these types of donations to YDI clients and their families is almost always greater than the cost of purchasing the items locally, and it is logistically impossible to distribute a wide variety of individual items in a meaningful way. Because of these costs and logistical concerns, we recommend that you support your community by donating these items to an organization that is equipped to put them to the best possible local use.
YDI Foundation is a charitable, non-profit 5.0.9(a)(3) organization that is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions from individuals, foundations and corporations. All donations made to the YDI Foundation will be acknowledged with a receipt for donors’ income tax reporting purposes.
