What Is The Best Organization To Donate A Car?

When deciding to which organization to donate your car, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Who benefits from my donation?
  2. Is my donation tax-deductible?
  3. Do I have to drop my car off to donate it?
  4. Is donating a car worth it?

Here is how Wheels For Wishes answers these important questions:

  1. Kids from the Make-A-Wish foundation benefit from your car donation. The proceeds from your donation fund life-changing wishes for children facing critical illness. Your donation benefits local kids from your local chapter of Make-A-Wish.
  2. Wheels For Wishes is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Your donation is tax-deductible.
  3. No! Wheels For Wishes comes to you and tows away your vehicle for free.
  4. Yes! We take away the hassle of selling, junking, fixing or storing your car. We tow for free which is a great value. We benefit local kids with your donation. Finally, you get a great tax deduction, so it pays to donate!

How Much Money Do You Get For Donating A Car

How much of a tax deduction do you get for donating a car? It depends. After donation, we auction your vehicle to get the maximum value for you and the Make-A-Wish kids. Your tax deduction will reflect for how much your car sold. If your vehicle sells for under $500, you will get the fair market value for your vehicle up to $500.

Can You Donate A Car That Needs Work?

If you are looking to donate a car today, it can be in almost any condition. Wheels For Wishes accepts most vehicles, running or not. While it may not be worth the money to fix a vehicle, it does pay to donate!
