The Season of Giving – Donate Your Car and Give a Gift of Hope

As the year draws to a close, you may already be looking ahead to tax time. You may also be searching for meaningful gifts to give this holiday season. Of course, you may have other issues on your mind, such as whether the clunker taking up space in your driveway or garage is worth what it’s going to cost you to winterize it.

If you would like to address all three of these issues with one action, then why not donate your car to charity? Donate for Charity works with a network of nonprofit charities to coordinate vehicle donations nationwide. Your car donation is tax-deductible, and you get to choose the charity that will receive your gift of hope. If you don’t have a specific charity in mind, you can browse a list of nonprofit agencies that would welcome your generosity.Best of all, the process is easy and fast. Just call us at 1-866-392-4483, give us the information on the vehicle and the location for pick up. We take care of the rest. Within 24 hours, you will receive a call from the tower to arrange pick up. Most of the time, the tow company can pick up your car within 24 to 72 hours. We arrange for the vehicle to be sold at auction or to a salvage yard, depending on condition. The charity receives a check and you receive a final receipt for your tax records.

This is the time of year that encourages giving. You may have your own traditions, such as writing checks to charities or volunteering your time to help those less fortunate than you are. Donating your vehicle lets you make a gift that has far-reaching consequences. Who can say how many people the charity receiving the proceeds from your vehicle may be able to help, thanks to you? If your car cannot be repaired, we recycle it in a responsible, completely green manner, a gift that benefits the environment and all who make this planet their home.

The deadline for a tax break on your 2013 taxes is December 31. However, we can arrange to pick up your donation sooner. Perhaps you have family coming for the holidays and need the parking space. You might have concerns about the effects that cold weather might have on a car that is in good operating condition, but is seldom driven. Your car might be sitting at a garage, in need of a repair that you are reluctant to pay so close to the holidays. Whatever your reason, the sooner you contact us, the sooner we can arrange to pick up your car — and the sooner a grateful charity can receive the benefits of your generous gift.
