Donating a car in Berkley is fast, easy and free. You've had your heart set on getting some new wheels, and maybe even had your eye on a favorite make or model. But, you want to make a responsible choice.

We'll tell you why.
It's one of the easiest formulas around - just 3-5 minutes on the phone with one of our coordinators and you're done! The process goes like this: an expert towing driver will meet you at whatever time and place is most convenient for you. Once it arrives at our processing center, we evaluate it and make selective improvements to maximize the value of your donation. Then we market it to a network of retail buyers who can appreciate its remaining life, and send the net proceeds to the charity of your choice. We handle all the DMV paperwork, and provide you with a nifty tax benefit.
You only need to call us at 855-520-2100 and let go. We at Cars2Charities will do the rest. The only thing we can't do is figure out what to do with the extra space in your garage. You can take advantage of the excess storage or head to the dealer!
Absolutely. Any vehicle or “toy" you no longer need can be parlayed into a boost to the bottom line of a charity. Do you have a boat or other water sport equipment?

Another advantage to a car or truck donation in Berkeley through Cars2Charities is that we almost never send a car to auction. Why? Because auctions attract wholesalers who are looking to make a profit on your car. We cut out the middleman. A car, truck or SUV donation in Berkeley tends to bring you a bigger benefit than a dealer or CarMax, where you usually only receive 30-40% of what they ultimately expect to resell your car for. The combination of the improvements and our marketing makes us unique and is the secret to getting you a 25-50% better tax deduction.
After your car is sold, we send your IRS form 1098-C within 30 days. Your charity reimburses Cars2Charities for the cost of towing, improvements and handling. You and the charity you choose get a carbon copy of the same form, so there's always 100% transparency about the value of your car. IRS regulations allow you to deduct the FULL SALE VALUE of your vehicle. So the more we get, the better off both you and your charity are.
Typically, the answer is whichever charity you already know or have a passion for! Do you have a particular health issue that is close to your heart?

So many are suffering from various forms of cancer, and you can be part of the solution with a donation to the American Cancer Fund in Berkeley. Your car donation to Breast Cancer Solutions fills in the gaps where patients experience a loss of income when they battle the disease.
