5 Reasons To Donate A Car To Charity This Year

January 21, 2016

With road trips, errands and daily commutes, cars play a major role in our lives. But your car can also make a huge difference in someone else's life when you donate your vehicle to charity! Wheels For Wishes supports children's charities around the country, and the proceeds from your donation can add to that impact.

Car donation charities like Wheels For Wishes also provide you with great benefits. If it's time to get a new car, Wheels For Wishes makes it easy for you to get your old car off your hands while making a difference for local kids. 

Car Donation Charities Support The Community

When your car has reached the end of its time, or it's simply time to upgrade, your unwanted vehicle can go on to serve a bigger purpose. Wheels For Wishes supports children's charities in nearly every state. Whether you're in California, Connecticut or anywhere in between, you can help kids in your area just by donating your car. Check out our chapter locator to see which charity your donation will benefit.

We Make It Easy To Donate A Car

When you donate your car, we take care of all the details for you. All you need to do is take your personal items you want out of the car and we arrange the rest! You don't need to worry about getting the oil changed one last time, making repairs or even giving it a quick wash. Wheels For Wishes takes care of everything. We even handle the paperwork so you can relax knowing it's taken care of.

You Receive A Tax Deduction For Donating Your Car

Unlike some car donation charities, Wheels For Wishes is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, meaning that your donation to us is 100 percent tax deductible. Any donation you make this year will make you eligible for a deduction on your 2016 taxes. All you need to do is donate before 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31 to make it count for the 2016 tax year.  

Wheels For Wishes Offers Free Towing

If you have a car that doesn't run anymore, it can be a huge expense to get it towed. However, you don't have to worry about that when you choose car donation. Wheels For Wishes will pick up your vehicle with free towing. We can accept most vehicles in any condition, even if they don't run anymore.

Wheels For Wishes doesn't just accept cars. We also take trucks, RVs, motorcycles, boats with trailers and other vehicles. We make it easy to get rid of nearly any type of vehicle.    

You Can Call Or Donate Online At Your Convenience

When you're ready to make a car donation, you can do so at any time. Our representatives are available to take your donation at 1-855-278-9474 and schedule your vehicle towing. Alternatively, you can make your donation online using our car donation form. If you donate online, one of our representatives will contact you within 24 hours of the next day to arrange for your free vehicle pick up.  

It really is that easy and beneficial to donate a car to charity!
