Our website helps connect potential donors with different charities throughout the United States. The charities we work with (Rawhide Ranch, Kars4Kids and the American Council of the Blind) are some of the country’s most trustworthy and reputable organizations in the field, so any donors can rest assured that their money is going to a worthy cause at the end of the day.
We aim to provide an online hub where donors can come, learn about the donation process and its benefits, and then take the steps to make a full donation. We put donors in contact with charities we feel are worthy of their donations and help facilitate the donation process between donor and charity. Our goal is to help both sides of the donation process connect with beneficial parties.
All of our affiliated charities are 501(c) non-profit organizations established to provide aid to the needy throughout the United States. Donations are used to provide resources such as food, water, shelter and supplies to the country’s more vulnerable citizens, and this is achieved through vehicle donations from the general public. Our charities aim to make every dollar count and will get the highest value possible from every donated vehicle, be it auctioning off as a whole or stripping it down for usable parts.
All of the donation programs utilize the same auctioning system, the proceeds of which then go towards providing vital supplies to disadvantaged children, less fortunate communities, visually-impaired adults and struggling families. While each individual charity has their own priorities when it comes to using funds, all are dedicated to bettering the lives of the less fortunate.
When a car is donated to one of our charities, it will be appraised based on its condition and auctioned off accordingly. Functioning vehicles will often be sold in full, whereas non-functioning or run-down vehicles may be stripped down for its usable parts and sold off individually. Our charities use third parties to determine the best approach to auctioning off vehicles and act accordingly. In either case, the proceeds are then used to supply aid to each charity’s respective cause.
All of our charities are lenient with the vehicles they accept. While these programs are generally referred to as ‘car donation,’ our charities accept a wide range of motor vehicles, including vans, trucks, motorhomes, motorbikes, boats, jet skis and trailers. Additionally, our charities are happy to accept vehicles which are in desperate need of repair or are completely non-functioning.
Benefits Of Car Donation
There are a whole host of reasons to donate a car to one of our charities today, and plenty of benefits for each individual donor too. Most importantly, vehicle donations help provide crucial resources to those who need a helping hand. These donations can help provide food and educational materials to children who otherwise wouldn’t get them, or specialist tools to help the visually-impaired navigate their daily lives.
One of the most attractive reasons to donate a vehicle is for tax write off purposes. Every donor will receive a tax relief bill to the value of their donated vehicle, with a minimum of $500 with every donation (providing the donation is successfully auctioned off). Donors will then be mailed a tax relief bill.
Another reason to donate is that it’s a convenient way to get rid of your car whilst also being financially viable. Everyone has been through a difficult selling process, dealing with low-ball offers and hagglers. When you donate your car to one of our charities, you don’t have to worry about any of this. Just call up, sign your donation off and your chosen charity will collect the car – usually the same week.
How To Donate
Donating your car to our charities is very simple. All it takes is three steps. First of all, commit to donating your vehicle by using our online form or call us on (877) 689-0815 to get things started. We promise that we won’t take up much of your time. All we ask is for your basic details and some information about your vehicle.
The next step is to arrange a suitable time and location for your charity to collect the vehicle from you. This will come at no expense to yourself. Just gather all of the necessary paperwork together (car title, any other relevant documentation) and then clear your car ready for collection. Be sure to remove all personal items from the vehicle such as blankets, CDs and electronic chargers.
Lastly, your chosen charity will organize your vehicle to be collected from your doorstep. The auction process will then begin in due course and your charity will keep you updated throughout. Once the auction is complete, you’ll be notified of the outcome and your tax relief form will be mailed to you. That’s all it takes.
