Donate A Car to Charity 

Donating a vehicle is quick, easy, and free for donors with Cars2Charities. The best part? You’re in control of your donation, you decide the best pick up date and time for you, and you decide which charity benefits from the donation. When you make a car donation to charity, there’s a multi-level benefit. You get a car donation tax deduction, plus the chance to support a favorite cause. And with a car donation vacation voucher, you add a getaway to that equation.

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. 

carkeyWhy Donate a Car?

The simple reason people chose to donate their car is because they no longer want it. Other reasons that people chose to donate their vehicle instead of trying to sell are:

-It’s a huge hassle to sell it yourself

-The trade-in offer you got from CarMax or a dealer is laughably low. 

- It would take A LOT of time and money to fix up the car yourself

-You need your vehicle off your property. 

-You want to support a cause that is important to you, get rid of your vehicle in the process, AND receive a tax deduction for your donation.

Donating your vehicle to charity is a generous act of kindness. That’s why we give you the freedom to choose where your donation goes. After we convert your car donation into monetary value- the charity you select gets between 50-80% of the proceeds! *

We work with local and national based animal rescues, children/families charities, environmental causes, homeless shelters, human services, and veterans

How to Donate a Car to Charity 

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 to charity

Step 1: Preparing for the Process

You’ll start the process of donating your car 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. 

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. team

It’s a situation many people dream about – a successful way to support a cause you care about without the work involved.

When you donate a car to charity, you can direct proceeds to any non-profit you choose, even one that doesn’t already have a vehicle donation program. If you’re already involved in non-profit work, you can propose support to the charity you know. There are also innumerable car charity options for individuals seeking a new cause. 

Tax Benefits

IRS regulations dictate the protocol for a car donation to charity. When you donate your vehicle to a nonprofit you gain a tax write-off a based on the sale price of your donation car.

If you feel unsure of how to file your taxes with a vehicle donation write off, don’t worry. Accountants are well-versed about including your donation when preparing your taxes. If you typically use Turbo Tax, the website also informs you how to add it to your calculations. At Cars2Charities we handle the paperwork, so it’s very easy on your end.
