Africa Heartwood Project will accept wire transfer donations, which are typically larger donations made by organizations and corporations. Please contact us directly to make arrangements.
We gratefully accept donated items for use within our projects or for distribution within needy communities in Liberia. We collect donated items at a facility in Salt Lake City, UT where they are stored until we have enough to fill a 40′ shipping container. This means it may be many months before your in-kind donation will actually be used by those who need it. All donated goods must be clean and in good working order, and cataloged thoroughly before they will be received.

Donated goods may be dropped off in person, or mailed to, the address below. We do not pay for shipping expenses, so sending donated goods will be at the donor’s expense. Please follow these instructions:
1. Inspect all items to make sure they are clean and in good repair
2. Pack items in groups of similar items within the package
3. Make a list of all groups of items in each package, including: Product description and material, weight, quantity, condition (new, or Used Grade A (excellent), Used Grade B (good), Used Grade C (fair), and Estimated Value). For new items we require the brand name and country of origin. For example

Package 1: 15 pounds, 12″x15″x22″
Used girls clothing, Grade B, 12 pounds, 29 pieces, Estimated Value $15.00
Used bedsheets, Grade B, 3 pounds, 5 pieces, Estimated Value $6.00

Package 2: 22 pounds, 15″x15″x15″
Used books, Grade B, 22 pounds, 18 pieces, Estimated Value $32.00

Make a copy of the list and put it inside the box, AND write the contents on the outside of the box (or tape a copy of the list permanently to the outside of the box).

4. Mail the package to:

Africa Heartwood Project
Donation Drop Off
1532 State Street
Salt Lake City, UT 84115

5. Email us to let us know the package is en route, and what the contents are. Request a donation slip if you wish to have one.

Please visit our Voluteers information page and complete the Volunteer Inquiry Form to let us know how you would like to get involved, either from where you live or in Africa. Professional services – such as accounting, legal, web development, or grant writing – are always welcome.
Donor Managed Funds

Africa Heartwood Project is now offering our friends the opportunity to raise funds that will be set aside for specific use as directed by the donor(s). This is called a Donor Managed Fund (DMF). The advantage of a DMF is that your school, office, Boy Scout troop, or any other community or group can make donations which will accumulate until the target amount has been reached. This way you don’t have to hold funds from contributors to your project, and donations can be tax-deductible. Anybody can set up a DMF with Africa Heartwood Project for use in expanding our current projects, or starting new projects exclusively for your group.

Those who wish to contribute to a specific DMF should visit our donation page to find out how you can make your donation, then specify the name of your DMF when submitting the donation. Your money will be held with other donations for that DMF until the project is ready and/or the amount of funding is sufficient.
