How to Donate


You’re invited! To donate media to one of our nonprofit partners, simply give them a call to schedule a pickup or to identify one of the convenient drop-off locations. They can provide you with a tax-deductible receipt for your CDs, DVDs, books, vinyl and video games. Have another nonprofit you would like to see benefit from in-kind donations? Introduce us!

If you’d like to support The Media Foundation, please consider volunteering.

In addition to our regular need for volunteers, we are always in need of shipping supplies:

  • Packing Tape
  •  Scotch tape
  •  Padded Media mailers (for CDs, DVDs)
  •  Cardboard sheets
    • rectangles , 13-½” x 27” are used for shipping vinyl
    • (we love to use recycled cardboard) Cardboard sheets
  • Standard printer paper (8-½” x 11”)
  • Coffee
  • Working computers w/ at least 4GB of RAM
    **We especially need 13.5″ x 27″ pre-cut cardboard for vinyls**
