There comes a time in the life of your car when it’s time to let it go. Maybe you need a bigger vehicle for a growing family, a smaller vehicle for downsizing, or perhaps you just want a newer car. So you park your old car and it sits there not being used. You think to yourself that when you get the time you will sell it. Or you will have it as an extra vehicle if you ever need it. Meanwhile, you keep paying insurance on it and it takes up space in the driveway.


Instead of parking it, why not donate your old car to charity?


There are so many reasons why you should consider car donation. You can save time and money from trying to sell your car, you can get a tax benefit when you file your taxes, and you can benefit a worthy cause. Learn these 6 benefits of donating your car to charity.
