Can You Donate Your CPAP? Where to Go and How to Do it

Table of Contents

If you are no longer in need of your CPAP equipment, you can donate your machine to be safely reused. Donating your CPAP device not only saves it from a landfill, it can also help someone who needs CPAP therapy but might not have the means to purchase a CPAP device.

When researching where to donate your CPAP machine, a good place to start is with organizations that specialize in sleep disorders and respiratory conditions. You can also seek out organizations that accept durable medical equipment and ask whether they take CPAP devices. Make sure that the charity is reputable to ensure your device is not just being resold for a profit. Registered charities will issue a receipt that allows you to write off the donation on your tax return.
