With more than 30 years of experience, Cars2Charities has the expertise in making vehicle donations easier than ever. Cars2Charities is designed to provide donors with a simple, fast, and secure way to donate their vehicles in Culver City
Step 1: Preparing for the Process
You’ll start the process of donating your car in Culver City by collecting the vehicle's cleared Certificate of Title and Registration.
If you have misplaced your title or registration, don’t worry! We can help. Please find your vehicle's identification number (VIN) and together we can determine which supplementary paperwork you will need to complete at the time of pick up.
As this time you will also want to decide which charity you want your proceeds to go to. To begin, take a look at our "Causes" tab. We organized our charities based on their mission.

If you have a soft spot for our furry friends, the animal rescue of your choice would greatly benefit from your donation. Perhaps you'd rather have your donation benefit people in need. These charities range from homeless shelters to medical research. Giving to charities like the Teen Cancer America, Alzheimer's Association, or Breast Cancer Awareness may help fund cures for life-threatening illness. Perhaps your passionate about supporting our veterans with a donation to Wounded Warrior Project or USO.
Now, if deciding on just one charity is too hard, we can help. You can just say, “Cars2Charities, you choose for me." Simply let us know.
Step 2: Scheduling Your Pickup
Give us a call at (855) 520-2100, or complete an online donation request. Our friendly donation coordinators will gather your vehicles information, and together, we will decide the most convenient time, date, and location for the pickup. Then we will send you an email that gives you step by step instructions to prepare you for the pick-up.
Before arriving, our tow truck driver will call you one hour before to give you time to collect paperwork and prepare the vehicle for towing. At the time of the pick-up, make sure your title is signed and clear of any lien holdings. You will hand over the title and registration to the tow truck driver.
Step 3: Maximizing the Donation
We take the reins at this point to maximize the donation for both our donors and charities. We do this by assessing the vehicle and adding value to increase the selling price of the car.
It’s a situation many people dream about – a successful way to support a cause you care about without the work involved.
By donating, you can share your passion for change and draw attention to what you consider important. In return, you receive a maximized ax deduction, and the comfort of knowing your donation sparked change and amelioration.
Car donations to charity are considered by the Internal Revenue Service and the State to be COMPLETELY TAX DEDUCTIBLE.
This means that the price your car is sold for will be tax deductible. Both you and the charity will receive IRS Form 1098-C within 30-50 days of the sale of your vehicle, making the transaction transparent to all parties. Plus, we do all the work. There’s no standing in lines at the DMV or dealing with the paperwork to transfer the title.
