In-Kind

Your in-kind gifts are critical to improving the lives of the individuals and families we serve.

We accept new or gently-used baby clothes, maternity clothes, household appliances, and furniture. You can also donate your new or like-new bedding and towels. We accept only new hygiene items, baby toys, cribs, pack-n-plays, and car seats.

Catholic Charities of Oregon can also pick up large donations of furniture or household items on a case-by-case basis.

Make an appointment to drop off your in-kind donations during regular business hours (8 AM-12 PM, 1-4 PM M-F) or by calling (503) 688-2502.

See a list of donation options and current needs below.

Donate a house or property

Donate a Home or Property

Donating property to Catholic Charities of Oregon is a thoughtful, generous way to create a major impact on the housing issues that face our underserved members of our community. We work to turn gifted property and buildings into life-sustaining permanent housing. Contact our Development Office at (503) 688-2625 if you’d like to learn more about donation options or to discuss a particular property or building donation you may have in mind.

Donate a Vehicle

You can donate your car, boat, or recreational vehicle, (even if it's not running) to Catholic Charities of Oregon. The proceeds from the sale will be used to fund our programs and services for the people we assist. We can arrange to have your vehicle towed at no cost to you. Catholic Charities of Oregon partners with Speed’s towing for this service.
