Your car donation to the American Red Cross Vehicle Donation Program enables the Red Cross to prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

Each day, thousands of people – people just like you – provide compassionate care to those in need. Our network of generous donors, volunteers and employees share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering, here at home and around the world.
We roll up our sleeves and donate time, money and blood. We learn or teach life-saving skills so our communities can be better prepared when the need arises. We do this every day because the Red Cross is needed – every day.
How Your Donation Helps
The American Red Cross, through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, is always there in times of need. Your vehicle donation helps the Red Cross continue their work when people need them most.
When Irene and Dennis Moore reach the end of the road with their cars and decide to replace them, the couple doesn’t trade them in; they roll them over to the American Red Cross.
“It’s an easy way to donate,” Irene said. “I appreciate the work the Red Cross does for so many people. It’s such a worthy cause.”
You could say the Moores have good karma with the Red Cross.
Over the past several years, Irene and Dennis have donated a total of four family cars – two minivans, an SUV and even a Cadillac. Irene is currently driving a 2012 Subaru and when that vehicle is ready for turnover, she’ll call the Red Cross again to come get it.
In return, supporters like the Moores, who donate a car to the Red Cross Vehicle Donation Program, receive a tax credit and don’t have to hassle with trade-ins at used lots or run classified ads to find a buyer. Instead, donors have the satisfaction of knowing proceeds from the sale of their vehicles are supporting the work of the Red Cross.
