Donate A Car To Charity

Car donation has become a well known way of giving to charity whilst avoiding the usual hassle of trying to sell it and also getting yourself a good tax deduction at the same time.

Firstly make sure your charity accepts car donations, and if your normal charity does not accept car donations, search round until you find one that is comfortable with accepting vehicles. Make sure the charity is an organization that you know and trust. There are thousands of organizations that accept car donations.

Make sure the charity is an organization that you know and trust. There are thousands of organizations that accept car donations. Don’t be pressured by emotional ads or pressure to donate – take your time in identifying a charity that will make good use of your contribution. Any worthy charity will be happy to give you sufficient time to make your decision.

Before you choose to donate, remember that all charities are not created equal. Look for an organization whose work you recognize as benefiting the community or the world. Ask how your car donation will be handled. You’ll want to know that the vehicle will be picked up and transported by properly licensed and insured towing companies and that the legal transfer of the donated vehicle will be handled by a licensed dealer contracted by the charity.

Try to find a charity that will actually use your car in its programs. Will it be given to a needy individual or sold? Find out what the charity does with its money. Contact the charity and confirm that your donation will be used for the right purposes. Do not donate your car if you cannot confirm that your contribution will go to a charity

Once you’ve identified a worthy charity, recognize that it will have to pay someone to pick up your car for you. To help the charity maximize the benefit of your donation, drop the car off yourself.

Donating a car’s the way to go if it isn’t running. Just remember to pick your charity carefully and talk everything through with them
