DONATE a piece of furniture or an electrical item! Can you be a GIFT AID DONOR?

Your donation is their future 

Please call us on 01892 615 612 or 01732 36 11 08 to see if we can use items you are willing to donate or to discuss a house clearance.  Your donation of any pre-loved, unwanted, or unused piece of furniture or electrical goods or clothes will help sustain our work with vulnerable and under-supported young people in our community. Perhaps you are moving house, clearing out a garage, changing your colour schemes, or making space, then please consider West Kent YMCA.

We are glad to receive any good quality furniture provided that it is in a saleable condition, and if it contains upholstery it had appropriate fire labels when it was bought. Antiques, pianos, cupboards, sofas, beds, bunk beds, desks, white goods, office furniture & equipment  etc, you name it we will try to take it to give it a new lease of life / a new home AND SUPPORT OUR LOCAL WORK.

Give us a call today to arrange a collection. Please note that we may have to charge for a collection in order to help cover the costs of the van. [TV collections cost £10]

    Then why not sign up to our GIFT AID scheme for people who support our work.  Under the terms of the Gift AId scheme; you have to appoint West Kent YMCA as your agent - to sell your furniture, electrical items or clothes - on YOUR BEHALF.  Once we have sold them we notify you - by email or letter - of the money raised by selling items on your behalf. 
At this stage you have a choice to retain the funds raised [less a small percentage fee for our time and costs] OR to donate the money to us - and it is this GIFT of money that is a qualifying gift of money for Gift Aid if  you pay sufficient income tax or capital gains tax..   
    It's very simple - and makes a REAL DIFFERENCE at NO cost to you! 
So how can I gift aid the cash raised from West Kent YMCA selling my items [as my appointed agent]?
    Ask in our warehouses for the form - fill it in, sign it and leave the rest to us!
    Ask us about the giftaid scheme when you phone us
    Ask our collection and delivery team whenever they visit or you see them
