Re-design trends for 2019

Spend your time and money where they matter most! Shop smart and give smart at Community Forklift to help us continue lifting communities in 2019.

Live in Maryland? Your giving dollars will have an even greater impact when you use Maryland’s Community Investment Tax Credit (CITC) program to invest in your local reuse warehouse. A smart gift gives you a tax credit and more bang for your buck.

$500 financial gift = $250 tax credit
$500 material gift = $250 tax credit*
$1,000 financial gift = $500 tax credit
$1,000 material gift = $500 tax credit*

*Material gifts must have an original purchase receipt or an appraisal

We must be in receipt of your financial donation in the 2018 fiscal year (before January 1st) in order for you to qualify for the 2018 tax credit.  But don’t let that stop you from donating next year!  If you donate in January, you’ll get a 2019 tax credit.

Shop your conscience. Donate your carbon footprint. Lift up your community.

The Forklifters thank you for your support!


Every donation and purchase helps us lift up local communities through reuse.  Community Forklift turns the construction waste stream into a resource stream for communities in the DC region – by keeping perfectly good items out of the landfill, preserving historic materials, providing low-cost building supplies, and creating local green jobs.
