Bloomington, Indiana Car Donations

Do you have an old car that’s becoming too costly to maintain? Are you seeing your repair and maintenance bills rising each month with no end in sight?  Is this causing you splitting headaches? Instead of continuing to let your old junker burn a hole in your wallet and rack your mind, why not just turn it over to us at Goodwill Car Donations through our Bloomington, Indiana car donation program?

You’ll be breathing a huge sigh of relief in no time when you do so. It should also comfort you to know that we’ll give your old clunker a new and meaningful purpose when we auction it off. We’ll invest the proceeds from the sale of your vehicle directly into community-building programs of the Goodwill organizations near you.

Thus, your donation goes straight back into your community since we’ll use it to provide the people in need in your area with job training and placement services, mentoring, career development, youth employment, disability benefits support, and other community-building support services.

The Rewards that Await You When You Donate

That’s right! You’ll get plenty of rewards for supporting a cause that seeks to improve the living conditions of the people in your community. Your gift will benefit not just the disabled and other disadvantaged individuals in your community but you yourself as well!

If you decide to donate your car for charity, here are some of the perks you stand to gain:

  • Reduce your expenses and increase your savings.

Throw those repair-expense woes out the window! Instead of constantly trying to keep your old, worn-out vehicle in one piece, why not save that money instead?

  • Zero paperwork for you.

We understand that paperwork can really be a drag. That’s why we decided to take care of everything for you. Documentation for your charitable donation is something you won’t have to worry about.

  • Free up huge space in your garage.

With your clunker gone, you’ll have all that extra space ready and available! It will definitely feel very different now with that eyesore of a vehicle out of your property. You might even consider buying a new car!

  • Avoid the hassles in finding a buyer.

Selling a pre-owned vehicle that’s way past its prime is by no means easy. By donating that vehicle to us in Bloomington, Indiana, you can forget all about the stress in finding a buyer on your own!

  • Get a top tax deduction.

We at Goodwill Car Donations will exert our best effort to have your vehicle sold at its highest possible price at auction. This way, you’ll be able to claim the maximum tax write-off for your donation.

Our Quick and Efficient Donation Process

You won’t break a sweat with our easy and efficient donation process. We’re not too big on making things more complicated than they should be.

Here’s a quick three-step guide on how you can make a Bloomington, Indiana car donation:

  • Get in touch with us.

Once you decide to donate a vehicle to charity, contact us by either filling out our online donation form or calling us at our toll-free 24/7 hotline 866-233-8586. We promise this won’t take long. All we’ll be asking are your contact information and a few details about the vehicle you’re donating, such as its year, make, model, condition and as well as it’s title’s availability

  • Decide your vehicle’s pickup schedule.

Tell us when and where you want us to collect your vehicle. We’ll ask a licensed towing company to haul off your vehicle based on your preferred schedule. You don’t even need to be physically present when the tow truck driver picks up your car. Just make sure to put the keys and the titles inside the vehicle for the driver to see. Don’t worry about the towing fee because that’s on us!

  • Wait for your tax-deductible receipt to arrive.

One of the benefits of donating your car to an IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofit is that you get to receive a 100-percent tax-deductible receipt within 30 days after we sell off your car. The document you will be receiving will contain the final selling price of your car. Using this receipt, you can claim your tax deduction when you file your itemized federal income tax return in the next tax season.


The Types Of Vehicles You Can Donate

SUVs, sedans, even wheelchairs! Yes, we accept almost all types of vehicles that you can think of. If it works, great! If it doesn’t, no problem! We’ll still take it regardless of its condition!

Although we’ll take even broken or worn-out vehicles, we won’t accept abandoned or stolen ones, which is why we really need the title of the vehicle you’re donating. If you can’t find it or if you’ve lost your vehicle’s title, we’ll do our best to help. Call us right away at 866-233-8586, and we’ll walk you through the process of getting a replacement copy of your title.
