Car Donors and Charity Reviews

We greatly appreciate our vehicle donors who support our research, care and support efforts. Every dollar from the program will help us to fulfill our mission and serve those affected by Alzheimer's. Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death and the only one in the top ten that cannot be slowed, prevented or cured. Vehicle donations are important to our ability to fight Alzheimer's.

Every gift to United Way of Story County is valued. Each dollar furthers the vision of UWSC to improve the quality of life in our community for individuals and families. This is a simple way to make a donation that will make an impact on the entire community.

What a great company. They picked up my car fast. There were not any problems. I tried with another company first and waited 2 weeks with no response. DonateaCar.com picked up my car in 2 days.

By donating a vehicle to the Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth through DonateACar.com, you are directly helping families whose children are being treated in our area. Our guests are asked to contribute a donation in the amount of $20 per night towards their room. However, oftentimes even this nominal amount is too much for a family to pay due to extensive medical expenses. Funds collected via the vehicle donation program are used to “share” in the cost of lodging, so that our families can focus on the care and treatment of the child, rather than worry about the expense of a hotel room.

CEO - Ronald McDonald's House of Ft Worth
"The Sacramento SPCA has had a vehicle donation program for more than eight years. With the help of this successful program, the SPCA is able to care for 7,000 homeless animals each year; our surgeons are able to provide more than 20,000 high-quality, low-cost spay/neuter surgeries annually; we offer a variety of humane education programs to children from throughout Sacramento County; and we provide programs and services designed to keep seniors and their pets together for life. The SPCA’s vehicle donation program is vital to our mission of providing compassionate care to the animals who need us most. Please consider donating your vehicle to the Sacramento SPCA today. Your generous donation will be put to use caring for homeless animals before they are placed into loving homes, and providing a variety of affordable programs and services designed to help both animals and people in our community."

This is a wonderful option if, like me, you find yourself in a situation where the repairs to your vehicle will be more than it's worth. I am so glad I found this. They really do make it easy and pain free. You get to walk away from it knowing something good will come out of your misfortune. I can't ask for more.

The much needed funds we receive from every vehicle donation help us provide our athletes opportunities to focus on their abilities and not their disabilities. Through these opportunities, athletes learn that differences should not be divisive, and they gain the skills and confidence necessary to succeed in all aspects of their lives. And when our athletes succeed, attitudes change, communities develop, health and self-esteem are built, and the eyes of the world are focused on all that is good and hopeful and positive.

Tax Benefit of Car Donation

We make it simple to get the maximum tax benefits when you donate your car.  For a car donation to be eligible for a tax benefit, it must be donated to a tax-exempt nonprofit organization that falls under IRS section 501(c)(3).  Donate A Car has already done this work for you. Each nonprofit in our large list of trusted charities meets this requirement. After your car is processed, you will receive a tax form in the mail providing the amount you are allowed to deduct on your taxes.
