Car Donations for Charity

You can really help out those in need with car donations for charity. Rather than junk the old vehicle or sell it for a few hundred bucks, why not donate that vehicle instead and make a difference in someone else's life.

Now you might be asking yourself why donate my car when I can make some money off of it? Well, that's a valid question and the answer comes down to this...will you be happier with a few extra dollars in your pocket or knowing that some needy person now has food, shelter, medication or a chance at furthering their education.

Car donations for charity are now easier than ever. There are several reputable sites online where you can donate your vehicle, and the entire process is quite simple.

In most cases, you fill out a short form with information about yourself and your vehicle, or simply call up and speak to someone on the phone.

The donate car charity will then arrange for your automobile to be picked up, usually within 3-4 days, at your home or a destination of your choice. There is usually no charge for towing, and you don't necessarily have to be at the location either.

If you are dealing with a reputable non-profit car donation charity, you can take a tax deduction for the full price of the sale from your vehicle...which is outlined in a new tax law that went into effect in January 2005.

You may be asking how much can I deduct if I donate my car? The answer is up to $500, unless the charity is able to sell the vehicle for more...in any case, you will get notification when you donate car charity.

In some cases you can also choose which charity the proceeds from your car sale go to, but most of them do not have an option.

So if you're looking to get rid of your old vehicle, why not consider car donation charity? It will be the best decision you ever make, and can truly make a difference in someone's life!
