About Our Company

Green Donation Consultants was established in 2005 in Fredericksburg, VA as a real estate appraisal company. The company was started by Patrick M. Smith, SR, a Certified Real Estate Appraiser and Master Senior Appraiser.  Mr. Smith’s passion for a Green Mission encouraged him to shifted the focus of the company to charitable donation appraisals of whole houses in 2010. Once he earned the Master Personal Property Appraiser designation from the National Association of Auctioneers, the Certified Personal Property Appraiser from the Certified Appraisers Guild of America and Accredited Member designation from the International Society of Appraisers, Mr. Smith expanded the company’s offerings to include all types of Personal Property for charitable donations.

As the company has grown, Green Donation Consultants’ role has grown, too. We are now much more than just an appraisal firm. Based on the needs of our clients, in 2017 with a strong commitment to provide additional services throughout the entire donation process, the appraisal firm was rebranded as Green Donation Consultants. GDC as we are now known, is the premier charitable donation consulting firm to literally thousands of highly satisfied clients for charitable donations in our coverage area of more than 25 states.

Green Donation Consultants employs certified and designated personal property appraisers, ten administrative professionals, and 10 support personnel, making it the largest privately-owned charitable donation consulting firm in the United States. When you work with Green Donation Consultants, you’re working with the best appraisers in the business. The recent addition of a commercial division focusing on large-scale development projects has led to life-changing donations to hundreds of non-profit organizations across the country, including several city public schools who have utilized donated materials to improve conditions for students and teachers. We are changing how the world views construction, one donation at a time.
