Charitable Tax Receipts for Donated Equipment

Sport Central cannot provide charitable tax receipts for used equipment and bicycles due to the volume we receive and difficulty in evaluating retail value.

We can provide a tax receipt for equipment that is new and has a Bill of Sale showing the retail value of the item(s).
