In-Kind Donations

Donating goods or services is a great way to support Matthew 25’s programs. Details about the kinds of donations we accept are below. If you’re interested in donating something not listed, please send us an email or call 319-362-2214 to see if it’s something we can use.


Tools donated to our Tool Library will be loaned out in the community or sold with the proceeds used to support the Tool Library. All power tools need to be in working order, and all battery-powered tools need to come with their batteries and charger. It is much appreciated if any tools donated are first cleaned up.

Please drop off tool donations at the Tool Library (located off the alley behind Matthew 25’s building at 201 3rd Ave SW) during normal Tool Library hours (Tuesday and Thursday 1-5 PM, or Saturday 9 AM – 12 PM). At this time, we do not have the resources to pick up donations.

If you would like to purchase new tools for the Tool Library, check out our Amazon list.

Fresh Produce

Our grocery store has a free produce section that anyone can take from to help stretch their grocery budget. If you have more fresh fruit or vegetables from your garden than you can use, you can donate your excess to the Corner Store to be given away to those in need. Drop off your donation at the Corner Store (604 Ellis Blvd) during regular open hours, Monday-Saturday from 8 AM – 8 PM.


If you would like to donate unexpired seeds for our urban farm, you can drop them off at our office (201 3rd Ave SW) Monday-Friday from 10 AM – 2 PM.

Professional Services

Matthew 25 does many home repair and renovation projects throughout the year and we’re always looking for contractors who would like to donate their time and/or materials. We particularly need specialty trades, such as electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and roofing.

Photographers, videographers, and other communications professionals who are willing to donate their services are also extremely helpful for us.

If you are interested in learning more about how you can donate your professional services, please send us an email or call 319-362-2214.


Matthew 25 uses a variety of vehicles to support our programs. If you have a vehicle that runs and is in good condition that you would like to donate, please send us an email or call 319-362-2214.

Other Items

If you have furniture or other items that Matthew 25 does not accept, consider bringing them to Stuff Etc Quality Consignment on Blairs Ferry Road and ask to have them go under Matthew 25’s name. We will receive a portion of the funds from the sale of your items! Items are subject to Stuff Etc’s usual restrictions.
