Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego is dedicated to that mission – excellence in care, research and teaching, and it’s the only pediatric trauma center in the area.pexels photo 462331

Have you seen all the electric car charging stations in the Southland?

When you decide to reduce your carbon footprint, let us know. With a car, truck or SUV donation to Rady Children’s Hospital, you enable the UCSD School of Medicine to continue its life-saving work. This major pediatric clinical research center also works in collaboration with world-renowned institutions such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

What’s the best car donation tax deduction to Rady Children’s Hospital?

When you make a car charity donation to Rady Children’s Hospital, you benefit more than kids who need medical attention. It’s also a smart financial decision – one that your CPA would approve of.

Though you may have done a dealer trade-in or gone to CarMax in the past, there are several good reasons to make a car or truck donation to Rady Children’s Hospital. Using those methods only gives you the advantage of 30-40% of your car’s value. The USC School of Business did a study showing that when customers have trade-ins, dealers actually increase the sale price of the cars they buy. 

But with an auto donation to Rady Children’s Hospital, you can write off 100% of the sale price of your vehicle. And you get an advantage with our unique process at Cars2Charities. The amount of your donation is maximized because after we pick up your vehicle, our technicians go to work on it, making necessary alterations before selling it. Cars tend to sell for 25-50 percent more than those without the changes. That makes your donation higher and, of course, your tax write-off!Rady 3

And one more thing about our process: We follow IRS guidelines. After handling all the paperwork – even the DMV forms — we send you and Rady a copy of IRS Form 1098 within 30 days of the sale of your vehicle, indicating the final sale price of your car. 

Can I donate an RV or make a motorcycle donation to Rady Children’s Hospital – San Diego?

Yes, a recreational vehicle donation to Rady Children’s Hospital will benefit the non-profit! At Cars2Charities you can make a difference with whatever vehicle you’ve got – a car, truck, or an RV donation to Rady Children’s Hospital – San Diego. We accept and pick up your Airstream, Winnebago, camper, fifth wheel – or something else.

Is your garage stacked to the rafters? Do you collect “toys” such as sportscars, quads, tent trailers or other vehicles?

The hours, or even years, of pleasure you’ve had on your hog can become a vessel of help and healing for children.
