A most inspiring and commendable act that anyone can do is to help a struggling person get back on their feet. Our world needs compassionate individuals who are ready to lend a helping hand whenever help is needed. Goodwill Car Donations offers you the chance to make someone’s life better today.

How We Help Disadvantaged People

When you donate your rusty old beater to us, you’ll set yourself up for a cost-free and nearly effortless method of vehicle disposal. At the same time, you’ll make a huge difference in the lives of disadvantaged individuals in Indianapolis.

We’ll have your donated vehicle sold at auction, with the proceeds going straight to the Goodwill Car Donations organizations in Indiana to support their critical mission-focused programs. These nonprofits provide their beneficiaries in your community with life-transforming benefits such as skills and job training, career development and placement, scholarships, youth employment, livelihood, disability benefits support, and other community-building support services.

Thanks to your car donation, once jobless individuals can be empowered to support themselves and their families and become productive members of your community and society.

How You Can Take Part in Car Donation

We take pride in our seamless donation process that takes just a few minutes to start. Our team handles all the heavy lifting including the free towing of donated vehicles and all the required paperwork. 

  • Contact us.

You can jumpstart your vehicle donation by giving us a call at 866-233-8586 or filling out our secure online donation form. Provide us with the basic details about the vehicle you are offering to donate and your contact information.

  • Schedule your vehicle’s free towing.

After verifying the information you shared with us, we’ll call you back to set up a schedule for your vehicle’s towing that’s convenient for you. We’ll send a licensed tow truck to collect your vehicle. You won’t have to pay for towing because it’s absolutely free!

Upon acceptance of your vehicle donation, the tow truck driver will hand you a towing receipt. You can use this to cancel your vehicle’s insurance coverage and DMV registration.

  • You receive your tax-deductible receipt.

We’ll coordinate with our nationwide network of vehicle liquidation vendors to have your car auctioned off. We’ll go the extra mile to make sure that your vehicle is sold through an auction house where your donation will fetch its highest selling price. This way, you can obtain the maximum tax deduction for your donation.

Once your vehicle is sold, we’ll have your 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt sent to you by mail. You can use this receipt to claim your tax deduction when you file your itemized tax return in the next tax season.To find out more information about our donation process, feel free to check out our FAQs page.
