The Home Front Cares has an avenue for you to donate vehicles, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles, regardless of condition. We’ve partnered with the nonprofit Vehicles For Charity, who manages the process for us. They will arrange with you to pick up your donated vehicle, which is then sold at an auction or for salvage, depending on its condition. Vehicles For Charity takes a small portion of the sale price to cover their nonprofit expenses, and the majority becomes a cash donation to The Home Front Cares.
You can donate your vehicle by filling out an online form or calling 1-866-628-2277. Vehicles For Charity will pick up your vehicle or arrange to have it towed, and provide you with a tax-deductible receipt, all at no charge to you.
What can I donate?
You can donate most any vehicle, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. They do not have to be currently running. Your vehicle donation will be sold at an auction or to salvage depending on condition.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes, The Home Front Cares is a non-profit organization and all donations qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return.
What do I need to donate my car?
The title to the car must be in your name. Vehicles For Charity will also need some information about the car’s location and condition, including mileage. This will help them schedule appropriate towing arrangements.
Will you pick up my car?
A towing company arranged by Vehicles For Charity will call you to schedule the pick-up of your vehicle. You will need to give the driver the keys to the vehicle as well as your signed title. They typically pick up your vehicle within two to four business days.
How is the value of my car determined?
According to Vehicles For Charity, the IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to include the IRS form 1098C. Vehicles for Charity will supply this documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.
