eBay Giving Works offers another way to make a charitable contribution by selling your used computers, cell phones and consumer electronics. Through eBay Giving Works, when you list an item on eBay, you can donate part or all of the final sale price to the nonprofit of your choice. Your listing will be marked with special features and information about your donation commitment, giving buyers additional confidence and incentive to purchase.

Donating through eBay Giving Works involves selling on eBay, so you may want to take advantage of some of the selling tools on eBay’s Selling Zones.
