‘Where Can I Donate My Car?’

If you’re thinking what to do with a car that has evolved into a hideous eyesore in your backyard, we wouldn’t be surprised if you ask the question, “Where can I donate my car?” We couldn’t blame you for being down to your last straw after spending your hard-earned money on expensive repairs for a car that couldn’t be brought back to its glory days.

Perhaps you had thought about selling it yourself but changed your mind after realizing that you’d want to save yourself from all the hassles associated with such a venture. Trading it in may not also be a tempting option for you since from the looks of it, you won’t be getting much at the state your clunker is in.

After carefully considering how you’re going to get your hands off your beater, you may eventually come to realize the best answer to your question: Donate it to a charity that supports a cause you can strongly identify with and one that can turn your rusty old piece of machinery into a powerful tool that can turn lives around.

A Great Place to Donate a Vehicle

Although you’ve finally decided to donate that clunker of yours to charity, you’re still looking for that nonprofit organization that you can entrust it to. You can find a plethora of charitable institutions out there that are undoubtedly awesome at what they’re doing to help their beneficiaries live much better lives. However, not all of them accept vehicle donations.

In case you’re wondering, Goodwill Car Donations is a great place to donate a vehicle. When you make a charitable contribution to us, you help us set the stage for countless disabled and other disadvantaged individuals across every state in the country to rise above their limitations and reach their highest level of personal and economic independence. We do this through the power of education and employment.

After we auction off the vehicles donated to us, we use the funds to support the programs of Goodwill organizations spread out all over the country. These programs provide services that directly benefit the people in various communities who need them the most. To give you an idea, check out this list of some of the critical programs that are being delivered by Goodwill organizations to their beneficiaries:

  • Family-strengthening services
  • Job coaching and placement
  • Vocational evaluation and situational assessment
  • Computerized office skills training program
