How To Donate Your Car
Cars With Causes has the expertise in making vehicle donations easier than ever. Cars With Causes is designed to provide donors with a simple, fast, and secure way to donate their vehicles. In most cases, we accept all makes, models, and types of vehicles. While car and truck donations are our most popular type of donations, we also accept motorcycles, motorhomes, off-road vehicles and even golf carts.
Step 1: Preparing for the Process – You’ll start the process of donating your car by collecting the vehicle’s cleared Certificate of Title and Registration. If you have misplaced your title or registration, don’t worry! We can help. Please find your vehicle’s identification number (VIN) and together we can determine which supplementary paperwork you will need to complete at the time of pick up.
Step 2: Scheduling Your Pickup – Give us a call at (888)-228-7320, or complete the simple car donation form below. Our friendly donation coordinators will gather your vehicle’s information, and together, we will decide the most convenient time, date, and location for the pickup. Then we will send you an email that gives you step by step instructions to prepare you for the pick-up.
Before arriving, our tow truck driver will call you one hour before to give you time to collect paperwork and prepare the vehicle for towing. At the time of the pick-up, make sure your title is signed and clear of any lien holdings. You will hand over the title and registration to the tow truck driver. Simple!
Step 3: Maximizing the Donation – We take the reins at this point to maximize the donation for both our donors and those we serve. We do this by assessing the vehicle and adding value to increase the selling price of the car. It’s a situation many people dream about – a successful way to support a cause you care about without the work involved.
Maximize Your Deduction
By donating, you can share your passion for change and draw attention to what you consider important. In return, you receive a maximized tax deduction, and the comfort of knowing your donation sparked change and amelioration.
Car donations made to a charitable nonprofit organization are tax-deductible. The best practice is to consult with a tax professional on how to maximize your tax deduction since every situation is unique. In general, the IRS limits the tax deduction to the gross proceeds from the sale of the car. Charitable contributions must be itemized on Schedule A of Form 1040 to qualify. If the total deduction claimed on the tax return exceeds $500, Form 8283 “Non-cash Charitable Contributions” must also be completed and attached. To learn more about what a donor’s responsibilities are prior to making a car donation, please consult the “Donors Guide to Vehicle Donations” found in IRS Publication 4303.
