Donate Materials

Thank you for your interest in donating building materials, tools, and/or appliances to Project Uplift NFP.  Your material donation goes a long way to helping those in need.

Are you looking for a valuable way to lend a helping hand and receive a tax deduction at the same time? Discounts and donations of materials from area suppliers and tradespeople are vital to the success of our program. Your in-kind donations allow us to multiply each $1 contributed into $4 worth of renovations. So, join the many area suppliers who support our programs through in-kind donations of building materials used on our home rehabilitation, remodeling and repair projects.

The items shown below are representative of how your generous donation may be utilized:

  • Smoke Detector
  • Home Fire Extinguishers
  • Outside Security Lights
  • Tools & Toolbox
  • New Kitchen Stove
  • New Hot Water Heater
  • Fresh Coat of Paint Inside &/or Out
  • New Electrical Home Wiring
  • New Roof

..and so much more. Please refer to our Quick Gift Guide.

Once again, Thank You for your interest in donating to Project Uplift.
