Donate Goods and Products
The families that Safe Horizon serves through our program offices, drop-in centers, and shelters often need essential, basic items. Your generous support of Safe Horizon through a donation of material goods and products can help a family recover from violence and abuse sooner and help them find their independence.
Below please see our guidelines for accepting new and/or used materials, along with our Donation Form to use when sending in your items.
Items We Accept Any Time of Year
Store gift cards (such as Target, Wal-Mart, BJs, Sears, Old Navy, etc.)

Picking Up Materials Donations
Unfortunately, we are typically unable to pick up donations unless it is a large donation of equipment or office furniture. For information regarding how to deliver your donation to Safe Horizon, please contact us at 212.577.3888 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We accept seasonal donations but ask that products/goods are donated during the season for which they are most appropriate. For donations during the major holiday season, please send in your donation(s) by December 15, which will allow us time to process your gift and to distribute materials to our shelters, children’s and homeless youth centers, and other program locations.
Please see our Car Donations page for information.
Goods and Products Donation Form
To receive proper recognition for your donation, please fill out, print, and send our Materials Donation form along with your donation. Please note that the form is not a tax receipt; we will send a letter acknowledging your gift that you may retain for your tax records.
For any questions, please email us at email@example.com or call 212.577.3888.
Amazon Wish List
Safe Horizon's Wish List on Amazon highlights the items we often use in our work on behalf of children, young people, and families who seek support through our programs. Visit our Wish List for ideas on new products to donate.
We are not listed on Charity Navigator because they only rate 5,000 charities out of an estimated 1.5 million charities in the U.S., and they do not at this time accept more charities. Although Safe Horizon is now celebrating 35 years of exemplary service, we are still not listed on their site. We do follow financial best practices for charities as you can see on Guidestar and also by our BBB rating.
