Bernalillo, New Mexico Car Donations: Honor Your Old Car By Making It Count

If you’re still holding on to your first car — the one given to you by your dad when you were still in high school — you’re probably no stranger to the headaches of owning an old vehicle. Not only does it consume a huge amount of gas, but it also often conks out in the most inopportune times. Perhaps, it even caused you to be late for an important date more than once.

Apart from its unreliability, maintenance cost is also no joke. Not only are its spare parts hard to find, but they also cost an arm and a leg.

The good news is that you can free yourself from the shackles of unending repair bills and honor your car’s decades-long service at the same time.

How You Can Make a Difference with Your Beater

The way to do this is by turning over that vehicle to us at Goodwill Car Donations through our Bernalillo, New Mexico car donations program. When you do so, you’ll be helping make a world of difference in the lives of the disadvantaged people in your town. These are the people in your community who are burdened with physical or mental disabilities, lack of skills, experience or education, welfare dependency, and other barriers to employment and a life outside the bounds of poverty.

Your donation can help improve their living conditions and uplift their lives. We’ll auction off your gift and turn over the proceeds to the Goodwill organization serving your area. This IRS-approved 501(c)3 nonprofit cater to disadvantaged individuals, providing their beneficiaries with:

  • Services for individuals with traumatic and acquired brain injuries
  • Long-term community-based employment
  • Comprehensive job readiness training
  • Long-term employment and social services for homeless veterans
  • Housing for veterans and their families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness
  • Permanent community-based employment for low-income seniors

Instead of sending your old and unwanted car to a local junkyard and picking up the tab for its expensive towing, we invite you to donate your vehicle to us instead. In doing so, you’ll be helping transform the lives of the disadvantaged residents of your community.

Why Donate?

Taking part in our Bernalillo, New Mexico car donations program is not just about performing a meaningful act of kindness and generosity to others. There are plenty of good reasons beneficial to you when you make a vehicle donation to Goodwill.  Here are some of them:

  • Receive a maximized tax deduction.

You can claim a handsome tax deduction from your donation since all Goodwill organizations are IRS-approved 501(c)3 nonprofits. We’ll make sure you get the highest possible tax write-off by selling your vehicle at its highest possible price during its auction.

  • Get free towing.

Normal towing of an old and unreliable auto can set you back hundreds of dollars. You don’t have to worry about something like that because we will take care of the towing of your car at absolutely no cost to you.

  • Our team will handle the paperwork.

You can rest easy knowing that our team of experts is equipped to handle all the required documentation from start to finish.

  • Avoid the hassles of trying to sell your vehicle yourself.

Spare yourself from all the trouble of posting ads, showing and transporting your vehicle, negotiating a deal with prospective buyers, and having your old ride refurbished to make it sellable.

  • Save money.

You can eliminate the need to spend money on your unwanted vehicle’s insurance, registration, series of repairs, and possible bodywork when you decide to donate your clunker.

  • Feel good about yourself

Give yourself a pat on the back for supporting a noble cause that will impact the lives of needy individuals in your community.
