Car donation to a non-profit organization is and has been an overlooked opportunity to benefit on both sides of this contribution for many years. The car donor and the recipient benefit simultaneously. The person who donates their car to charity can deduct a value from their taxable income and the recipient obviously benefits by making use of the vehicle.

Car donation can include virtually any vehicle you wish to donate. You can donate a car, donate a truck, donate a motorcycle, and even recreation vehicles like a boat or an RV. Donating a car to charity is a great way to rid your driveway of an unused vehicle, plus you are clearing the clutter around your home. There’s no need to accumulate cars that could be donated to charity.
Helping the less fortunate and knowing that you have contributed by improving their quality of life with a tangible gift, one that they can put to good use, is far more personal and you can be assured that the donation has gone directly to a recipient. So many charities have administrative costs and fees that often consume cash donations and the intended recipients may not actually see the fruits of your efforts.
Car donation charities actually enlist the help of towing companies specifically, for pick-up and delivery of donated cars, to make the car donation process all the more convenient for the car donor.
