September 20, 2021

Donating your car is an easy way to do some good for your community and your wallet! Before you get started, there are a few things that you should know when you're looking for a place to donate a car.

Alabama / Alaska / Arizona / Arkansas / California / Colorado / Connecticut / Delaware / Florida / Georgia / Hawaii / Idaho / Illinois / Indiana / Iowa / Kansas / Kentucky / Louisiana / Maryland / Massachusetts / Michigan / Mississippi / Missouri / Montana / Nebraska / Nevada / New Hampshire / New Jersey / New Mexico / New York / North Carolina / North Dakota / Ohio / Oregon / Pennsylvania / Rhode Island / South Carolina / South Dakota / Tennessee / Texas / Utah / Vermont / Virginia / Washington / West Virginia / Wisconsin / Wyoming

Donating Your Vehicle To A Charity

You want to make sure that you donate your vehicle to a registered 501(c)(3) organization. Some car donation programs state that they are charitable but if they are not registered with the IRS as a non-profit charity program you will not receive any tax deduction. With an IRS registered non-profit organization, you can track exactly where the proceeds are headed after your vehicle is sold at auction.

What Is The Best Charity To Donate My Car To?

Choosing where to donate your car can be the most difficult part of the process. Who would benefit the most from your car donation? How much of the proceeds actually get to the charity? How soon will the charity pick my car up? All of these questions are floating through your mind. Why not make it easy.
