Vehicle Donation

Ready to drive change? Donate your vehicle through our partner CARS and receive a tax deduction while supporting our work to protect the local environment.

CARS will pick up most cars, trucks, trailers, boats, RVs, motorcycles, off-road vehicles, and heavy equipment, making it easy for you to support our mission to move toward a greener future.

How does it work?

Call 855.500.7433 or 855.500.RIDE or Submit the Secure Online Form. The Vehicle Donor Support Team will walk you through the process, including arranging your free pick-up and helping you with steps to release your liability after you donate.

Schedule Your Free Pick-up. In most cases, CARS can schedule the vehicle pick-up with a preferred licensed vendor on the initial call once the donation record has been completed. The CARS vehicle donation program has also requested that drivers practice safe and secure interactions with donors, including minimizing contact.

Receive a Donation Receipt. In most cases, you will receive an initial donation receipt from the tow driver at the time of your vehicle pick-up. If the vehicle sells for $500 or less, donors are also mailed a thank-you letter within 30 days of the sale of the vehicle, which serves as a tax receipt. If the vehicle sells for more than $500 and the donor has provided their tax identification number, an IRS Form 1098-C will be mailed to the donor within 30 days of the sale stating the amount of gross proceeds (the maximum amount of your tax deduction) received from your donation. For specific tax-related questions, please consult a tax advisor.

Donating your vehicle is a simple way to make a big impact and an opportunity to clear space in your driveway. Plus, it’s completely free and tax-deductible, giving you double the reasons to give back.
