Goodwill Car Donation Programs: Transform Lives through Empowerment

For more than a century, Goodwill organizations all over the country have been working to empower disabled and other disadvantaged individuals by providing them with opportunities for work and learning. All these organizations are IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofits and affiliated with Goodwill Industries.

As part of our commitment to helping these Americans achieve dignity and quality of life, Goodwill has been at the forefront of programs and projects directed at capacity building, skills development, and education for disadvantaged men and women who are looking to find decent and stable sources of income to uplift their lives and those of their families.

Among the community-based programs and services that Goodwill provides include job and skills training, job placement programs, career workshops, on-site and virtual skills training, youth services, including mentoring services for youth with developmental disabilities, family strengthening services, internship programs, financial support, and disability benefits.

For decades, Goodwill has been helping improve the quality of lives of less fortunate Americans. By empowering them through work and learning, they have been able to use their strengths and skills to build careers to support their families and become productive and self-reliant members of their communities.

You can help provide these life-changing services to more deserving individuals in your community by simply donating any type of vehicle you no longer need to Goodwill Car Donations, Goodwill’s online vehicle donation platform, and we’ll connect with a nonprofit accepting your car donation.

How Your Charity Car Donations Can Transform Lives

What may look like a piece of junk to you can be a vehicle of hope for your needy fellow community residents. When you donate this vehicle to us, you’ll be able to touch their lives.

We will auction off your donation and turn over the proceeds to the Goodwill organizations serving your local area, helping these nonprofits deliver their services to their beneficiaries in your community.

What You’ll Get as a Goodwill Donor

You’ll be able to help yourself as much as you’ll be helping the disadvantaged people in your community with your Goodwill vehicle donation. Here are some of the rewards that await you:

  • Get a maximized tax deduction.
  • Get free towing services from a professional towing company.
  • Enjoy a hassle-free giving experience.
  • You will no longer be financially burdened with taking your old vehicle to the shop for maintenance and repairs.
  • You’ll also free yourself from additional expenses such as your car’s insurance and registration.
  • Paperwork will be efficiently handled by our team on your behalf.
  • You’ll have more storage space in your garage after we haul your vehicle away.

How to Donate Your Car

Teaming up with Goodwill Car Donations is easy and convenient. A simple phone call to us lasting just a few minutes is all it takes to take part in our car donation program, and you can do it in the comfort of your own home.

Goodwill Car Donations will provide you a professional towing service absolutely for free. All we’ll need from you are the details on where, when, and what time you want us to collect your vehicle.

We will issue you a towing receipt before taking away your car. You will need this receipt to cancel the insurance coverage of your vehicle and to have it de-registered at your local DMV.

  1. Receive your tax-deductible receipt.

Within 30 days of your vehicle’s sale, we’ll send you by mail or email your 100% tax-deductible sales receipt. You can use this receipt to claim your top tax deduction when you file your itemized federal income tax return in the next tax season.
