Donate My Car to Charity
Donating a vehicle to charity not only gets rid of an old vehicle for you, but also gives you a way to help people.
No matter which state you live in, Goodwill Car Donation is happy to accept the gift of your unwanted vehicle.
How to Donate a Vehicle
We make it very easy to donate a vehicle to charity. This is how the process works:
- Choose to donate any type of vehicle. We take cars and trucks, in addition to a variety of recreational vehicles. Feel free to give us your RV, motorcycle, boat, plane or jet skis. If the vehicle no longer works, that’s perfectly OK, too.
- Get in touch. Just give us a call at (866) 233-8586 or contact us through our website vehicle donation form. When you get in touch, let us know when will be the best time for us to come tow the car away.
That’s everything that’s needed on your end. Our team will show up on the date and time you specified to retrieve the vehicle. We then auction it, using the proceeds toward the many Goodwill programs and services in your state. You’ll also receive a top tax receipt for your deduction.
Which Charity Should You Choose?
Maybe you’re thinking, “I want to donate my car to charity,” but you’re not sure which charity to work with.
First, when you decide to make car donations to charity, you need to make sure you’re giving to a legitimate charity that is registered as tax exempt with the IRS.
Below are some commonly thought of nonprofits that take car donations:
Goodwill Car Donation: Goodwill organizations direct the proceeds of vehicle donations towards many programs and services for job seekers, youth, seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, and other specialized needs. A common saying you’ll hear from Goodwill organizations is “A hand up, not a hand out”. One fantastic benefit of choosing Goodwill is that all vehicle donation proceeds are distributed to the local community where the donation took place.
Kars4kids.org: Directs the proceeds of vehicle donations towards programs and services for Jewish children and their families.
National Kidney Foundation: Directs the proceeds of vehicle donations towards programs and services that have to do with the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease.
The Salvation Army: Directs the proceeds of vehicle donations towards rehabilitation programs. This charity is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church.
American Cancer Society: Directs the proceeds of vehicle donations towards cancer research and advocacy.
There are many more options you can choose to donate a vehicle to, including Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America, Make-A-Wish Foundation, United Way of America and Alzheimer’s Association.
