When you choose a car donation to a charity as a way to maximize your giving power, you’re making a wise decision that is often a better option than trying to sell it yourself, and results in better value than a potential trade-in at a car dealership.
Cars2Charities is the best place to donate – we get the best results from your vehicle donation because we first improve how your vehicle looks and runs. When you donate through Cars2Charities, we use our 30 years' experience in the auto industry to quickly assess what will create the best return, and we invest our own money to make those improvements on your behalf.
Our approach results in a win- win: for you and your charity.
• You get the highest tax break from the sale of your vehicle.
• Your charity gets the biggest check.
If you choose to give your car as a charitable donation, you are permitted by the IRS to take the value of the car as a tax deduction. The full sales price is used when determining this deduction -- so it’s very important that you work with a car donation program that has a track record of getting the maximum amount possible for each vehicle.
A charitable car donation with Cars2Charities is not only easy – it’s highly effective. We do not sell your car at an auction. Instead, we find the right buyer to get top dollar for your donation. This benefits you in two ways: you maximize the amount of good your donation will do for your designated group and you benefit yourself with a larger tax deduction.
Making a charitable donation through Cars2Charities is easy! Simply take the following steps, and we handle the rest:
• Contact Cars2Charities by phone or using the “Get Started” form above, to provide a few facts. The online form is easy, or one of our friendly representatives is always ready to get the ball rolling. It takes just 3-5 minutes of your time.
• We arrange for pickup. We will pick up your car in any location you choose. Towing is free, and most often we pick up at your home, place of business, auto repair shop, or storage facility.
• We provide the deduction for your taxes. Once we’ve sold your vehicle, we send you a receipt that you can use to take the vehicle deduction on your tax return. This IRS Form 1098-C shows the actual sales price of your vehicle.
It’s so easy when you choose Cars2Charities to make a real difference in someone's life! Our proven process allows you to donate quickly and easily, and to maximize your charitable giving in the simplest way possible.
