With your donations, our charities will touch the lives of millions of disadvantaged adults and children all across the United States. These are the people who’ve been dealt a bad hand in life and require all the help they can get. Some were born with impairing conditions while others grew up around domestic violence, and our charities do everything they can to make their lives a little more enjoyable all around. Your generous donations go a long way to giving these struggling souls the same opportunities as everyone else.
Donating your unwanted vehicle can be an emotionally, morally and financially rewarding experience. Philanthropy is at the heart of the American system, and car donations are just one of the many reasons why these charities continue to flourish year after year. So, if you want to know all about the benefits of car donation, including what it means for the donors and the receivers, we’ve got everything you need to know on this page.
The Benefits Of Car Donation
The most important aspect of car donation is that you’ll help improve the lives of those who aren’t as fortunate as the rest of us. A simple vehicle donation can make a huge impact on these people’s wellbeing, as the finances from your donation can be used to source enough food, water or resources to last months or even years. Whether it’s food, water, books, toys or specialist equipment, the proceeds from a donated car can go a long way to making someone’s life that little more enjoyable. Our charities do everything they can to stretch the dollars far to make the most from every single donation that comes their way.
As well as providing aid to the vulnerable, another notable benefit of donating is the tax relief component. While we know that philanthropy is considered a selfless act, it always helps if there’s an incentive on the other side too. After all, giving up an expensive vehicle is not something most ordinary people would do, which is why we believe it’s important for the donor to receive something in return for their generosity. The value of every donation can be offset against the donor’s tax bill for that year, helping provide a little motivation for more would-be donors to come forward.
Get Your Vehicle Towed Hassle-Free
Giving to America’s vulnerable is important and we aim to make the process as convenient as possible. Your generosity is gift enough, which is why our charities go the extra mile to ensure that the process is smooth, streamlined and completely free of stress for the donor. Once you’ve committed to donating, the charity of your choosing will arrange a suitable date, time and location to collect your vehicle from you. Whether it’s on your doorstep or parked elsewhere, they’ll tow away your car completely free of charge and leave with an uncluttered driveway or garage.
This aspect of the donation process alone is why a lot of people prefer donating to selling. You don’t have to endure the process of privately selling, which would include dealing with hagglers, low-ball offers and no-showers. All you need to do is gather all of the paperwork, hand over your keys and let your chosen charity do the rest. Not only will they take your vehicle away from you no questions asked, but you’ll then receive your tax break once your donation has been auctioned off. No longer do you have to deal with the inconveniences of selling whilst still enjoying similar financial reward.
Reputable Charities Across America
We work with three respected charities; Kars4Kids, Rawhide Ranch and the American Council of the Blind. Each one provides aid to different types of vulnerable people, but all are committed to changing the world for the better. Our charities have locations in every state in the country, meaning they’re able to take donations from all around. Each charity utilizes the same auction process that we’ve mentioned, with the only difference being the resources they use their finances for. But in each case, their priorities are bettering the lives of those they choose to help and provide them with supplies they wouldn’t be able to source themselves.
For example, Rawhide Ranch takes in children who are in severe danger, be it from critical illness or domestic abuse. Their priorities are to provide these children with a safe space with food, water and education. Kars4Kids provides the foundations children need for happy and meaningful lives, and they do this by giving them a place where they feel safe, bond with like-minded children and providing educational resources too. The American Council of the Blind caters to those with visual impairments and takes steps to improve the quality of life for anyone struggling with sight issues. You can choose which (or all) of these organizations you want your dollars to go to.
