Recently, we shared a checklist of spring cleaning tasks to do around your home to leave it feeling clean and refreshed. As you’re going through cleaning and organizing your space, we hope you’ll consider donating items that can be repurposed in some way.
Today, we’re taking all the guesswork out of where to donate by rounding up a few of our favorite local nonprofits that accept furniture donations.
*Please note: check the individual websites for each nonprofit to see how their donation policies are affected by COVID-19.
The Green Chair Project reuses donated furnishings to give back to local community members who are recovering from homelessness, disaster, or crisis. The Green Chair Project partners with local agencies to connect with families, who then get to shop the nonprofit’s showroom for furniture, linens, and other home goods.
The Green Chair Project accepts a variety of household accessories and decor, lamps, linens, furniture, cleaning supplies, cookware, and more. A full list of their accepted donations can be found here.
You can drop off donations at their location in Raleigh or schedule pickup service for essential furnishings like sofas, dressers, and other large furniture items. Learn more about The Green Chair Project and their mission by visiting their website.

“There was never a question that they were putting our needs first and they were always honest with us. At one point in the building process, we talked in-depth about reconfiguring the layout of the home to change the orientation of the garage. Jon was upfront with us and told us they’d absolutely do it if we wanted, but he warned us that lumber prices were starting to go up, which could impact the project.”
- Chad & Caroline
“We put a lot of time and thought into designing our home, and it was important to us that we could find a builder that would support our vision, while also helping us make smart design decisions. After our first meeting with Rufty Homes, it was clear that they understood our goals and were on board some of the more unique aspects that were important to us.”
