NCADV is recycling items to:

  • Fund programming that empowers victims of domestic violence, connects victims and survivors to helpful resources, and helps them remain free from abuse
  • Support legislation aimed at ending domestic violence
  • Give support and resources to organizations across the US working to stop violence in the home

How It Works:

  • Roughly 60 percent of the collected items will be refurbished and resold
  • The revenue generated from the sale of refurbished items will be used to support NCADV programs that help end violence in the home
  • The remaining items are recycled according to the highest environmental standards

Donation Acknowledgements:

All donations are received directly by our recycling partner, Cellular Recycler. Cellular Recycler determines the value of each donation. NCADV then receives monthly reports for each month prior and issues donation acknowledgments to donors with the total value of your donation as soon as we are able. If you need an immediate acknowledgment, you are welcome to download the letter found here and fill in your own estimate of your donation.

About your item's data :

There is no need to clean or wipe information from the item you wish to donate. All donated electronics are either refurbished and resold or recycled for parts. If refurbished, the item's software is replaced with new software which completely wipes any stored information from the device. If the item is recycled, it is crushed down for recycling. Either way, the information on your device will not be compromised and there is no need to completely wipe your device clean.

The value of your item:

The value of all donated electronics is based on the current wholesale value of that particular item (please note: these values differ from what your items might be going for on Ebay, Craigslist and another similar sites' pricing). NCADV receives approximately 1/3 of each donated item's total value. The total amount received by NCADV for your donation is what we include in the thank you letters sent to you following our receipt of your information from Cellular Recycler, approximately a month to six weeks after your donation is received by them. The amount included in these thank you letters is the amount you may claim on your taxes. To see a list of current values, please click here. For items not included on this list, NCADV receives a minimum of 50¢. Please realize every cent counts in this effort! Electronic donations raised over $23,000 for NCADV in 2018 alone!

*Note: If you wish to receive the Ebay or Craigslist value of your item, you can always sell your item privately and donate that amount to NCADV for which we can then give you full tax credit.
