How Do I Donate My Gym Equipment

Donate your yoga mat or elliptical machine to charity if they are collecting dust in your garage. You will find many schools, churches, youth clubs, and other non-profit organizations that are eager to get rid of your items. Your old equipment might be picked up at your home by many organisations. You don’t have to use your old treadmill for clothes hanging. Give it away to someone who needs it.

For unwanted gym equipment, contact your local charity shop. Larger branches might accept equipment from the gym or exercise, and may sell it off or donate the equipment to those in need.

The Charity Commission has a website that will help you find the nearest not-for profit in your region. To find out if these organizations are interested in taking your used gym equipment, call them. If your equipment is not accepted by the organization, they might have a representative who can point you towards a charity which does accept gym equipment.

  • You can donate your old yoga mat and elliptical trainer to charity.
  • The representative of the organization might be able, if necessary to direct you to another charity that accepts gym equipment.

Sport Gift is a charity that gives equipment to children who are less fortunate. They will accept only certain equipment, like skipping ropes or balls. You can see the full list on their website.

  • You can donate any unwanted equipment that you don’t need to the Sports Gift charity, which provides equipment for children in poverty around the globe.

You can get rid used mats by visiting free sites that recycle and advertise. The environment will be improved and there will be more storage space for the mat if it is donated.

You might try posting it on Craigslist. Look into whether your local paper has an area for free items. Include a description of the equipment and a photo with your newspaper or online ad.

Keep receipts and evidence of donations. You will be able to use these documents when filling out your tax return.

Do not hesitate to contact your family and friends if you do not need the items.

Don’t donate soiled or dirty gym equipment. Before donating to charity, clean all equipment.

If you have large pieces or bulky items of unusable gym equipment, it is best to contact the charity before you place them at the site.
