1. Look to Our Wish List
Items that could not otherwise be afforded by persons served are placed on our wish list. The list is continuously updated, so check back often. Please check our wish list before dropping items off at an EPI location.
For ease of describing and managing items requested, we've set up an Amazon wish list. Please feel free to donate gently used items that match this description or to shop at the local store of your choice.

2. So, You've Got What We Need...
That's great - thank you! Wish list donated items can be dropped by or mailed to our central office. For larger items, please contact us in advance so we can work with you to make delivery as easy as possible.
Your donations to Exceptional Persons, Inc. may be tax deductible. To make a donation from our wish list, simply fill out this gift-in-kind donation form and bring or mail it along with your donation.
3. My Donation Isn't on Your Wish List. What Now?
We only accept items off of our wish list simply because don't have the space needed to accept items that don't have an immediate home. Never fear, we've come up with a solution that will still help you help us.
- We have an account at Stuff, Etc. Quality Consignment in Waterloo. If the item you wish to donate is not on our wish list, simply take it to Stuff, Etc, let them know you'd like the proceeds to go to the Exceptional Persons, Inc.'s account. No appointment is needed.
- When your item sells, EPI will get 50% of the proceeds. The proceeds are passed on to the individuals we serve, allowing them to shop at Stuff to find the items they need.
We're excited about this arrangement because the persons we support to have the ability to shop for and choose items the items they like and the sizes they need. The ability to choose is a valuable gift. Thank you in advance!
