Richmond, Indiana Car Donations

If you want to get rid of an old car that’s been stored in your garage for far too long, consider donating it to Goodwill Car Donations through our Richmond, Indiana car donations program. This is the best option for clunker owners who aren’t willing to sink more of their money into vehicles that constantly need repairs and maintenance. Donating your vehicle to us means conveniently getting rid of it without the hassle and the cost!

When you donate a car to us in Richmond, Indiana, we’ll sell it via auction and transfer the proceeds directly to the Goodwill organizations in your area. These IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations cater to persons with disabilities and other disadvantages, providing them with essential services such as skills and job training, career development and placement, scholarships, youth employment, livelihood assistance, disability benefits, and other community-building support services.

Thanks to your vehicle donation, they can find gainful employment and sources of livelihood that can enable them to harness their full potential, break free from poverty, and gain financial independence.

Aside from the fact that you’ll be getting your hands off a vehicle that you no longer need, you’ll make Richmond, Indiana a better place for everyone.

What You May Not Know About Richmond

Located in the eastern part of central Indiana, the city of Richmond is known to be one of the most diverse antiquing destinations in the Midwest with over 1,200 antique shops at its famous Antique Alley. If you’re in the mood for a little history lesson, Richmond’s rich and bountiful history won’t disappoint. At the Levi Coffin House, which is also called the Grand Central Station of the Underground Railroad, you’ll learn about the 2,000 fugitive slaves who moved north toward their freedom.

Although this information may not really be new to you, what you may not know is that according to the United States Census Bureau, Richmond was home to about 35,353 people when the bureau made its most recent population estimates in 2018. Furthermore, the Census Bureau confirmed that 16.4 percent of its residents who were under the age of 65 at that time had some form of disability while 23.4 percent of them were identified as persons in poverty.

Just like other cities in the U.S., Richmond matters to us at Goodwill Car Donations, and we want to make sure that those who are struggling to overcome barriers to a life of financial freedom will receive the assistance they need to get back on their feet.
