        In-Kind Donation Form and Receipt

        • We request that all donors complete an In-Kind Donation Form each time a donation is made. Information from the form will be used to record and acknowledge your donation and keep you updated about JCOC. Estimated values that you provide are helpful on grant and donation applications in order to obtain funding for JCOC programs. You will need to determine the value
          of your donation. JCOC is not able to make this determination or provide tax advice.
        • An In-Kind Donation Receipt will be provided upon request at the time of your donation.


        Distributing Your Donation

        • Food donations help provide food to our community six days a week through food pantry and community dinner programs. Clothing, toiletries, and household items help single adults while in shelter and as they transition into housing. Visit us at jcoc.org for details about these programs.
        • JCOC makes every effort to utilize all non-food donations, however, our storage space is limited. There are occasions when we will need to send items to other organizations.

        Thank you for your consideration of a donation to JCOC. Your donation will help make a positive impact in the lives of many individual and families in our community.
