Used Car Donations

Which Charities Accept Car Donations

In this day and age, it seems most charities have relationships donate car to charity with companies that support car donation programs. If you are not sure if your favorite charity accepts donations of used vehicles, you can do a search for the charity name and car donation. If the charities website comes up as the first result, than chances are they will take your car or truck as a donation. If you don't see your charities website, you may need to click the top few results to see if the charity has partnered with another organization that runs the car donation program.

One thing to check when donating a vehicle is if the organization is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. In order to receive a tax deduction for donating anything, this has to be the case. You can check to see if the charity does have the proper organizational status by searching its name on the Exempt Organizations Select Check at irs.gov.
