Spread Holiday Cheer to Your Community This Way 

You can always bake a batch of delicious cupcakes for the needy folks in your community to spread holiday cheer. However, there is an even better way to make them happy not just for a day but probably for the rest of their lives. We’re talking about the men and women in your place who are burdened by their disabilities, lack of education and essential skills, and other personal issues that keep them trapped in poverty.

You can help uplift their lives by simply donating a vehicle to Goodwill Car Donations. We’ll sell your donation at an auction, with the proceeds going to the local Goodwill organizations serving your area.

These IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofits use the funds that we turn over to them to deliver life-enriching services to their beneficiaries in your area, providing them with job training and placement, mentoring, youth employment, career development, disability benefits support, family support, and other essential community-building support services.

These benefits that your car donation will help provide will empower your disadvantaged neighbors to land decent-paying jobs that will eventually free them from a life of poverty.

Donating to Goodwill Car Donations means getting your unwanted vehicle picked up and towed away for free. It also means getting entitled to receive a top tax deduction in the next tax season.

Moreover, your act of charity will bring you an immense sense of satisfaction, knowing that you’ll be contributing to the growth and development of your community by empowering needy residents through work and learning.

You can donate just about any type of vehicle, including those that are no longer working properly. Your location should not be a problem. We can collect your donation wherever you are in the United States since our vehicle donation program covers all 50 states.
