FBA Donations program

The FBA Donations program makes it possible for you to automatically donate your unwanted inventory to selected US charities.

How it works

When you request disposal of eligible overstock, returned, or other unwanted FBA inventory in US fulfillment centers, Amazon makes it available to selected US charities.

Our usual disposal fees apply.

The FBA Donations program is only available for inventory stored in US fulfillment centers.

Eligible products

The eligibility of an ASIN for donation is subject to legal, safety, and regulatory guidelines, in addition to charity location, interest, and need.

If a product is not eligible for donation, Amazon will dispose of it in accordance with relevant regulations and safety guidelines.

Products not eligible for donation include the following:

  • Hazardous and dangerous goods
  • Prohibited and restricted products
  • Recalled products
  • Products with internal memory
  • Counterfeit products
  • Products with safety concerns
  • Any other products that may be defective or inappropriate for donation
