Donate Car to Charity

Donate Car to Giving Center charity.

We make it easy for vehicle owners to make car donations. Taking a tax deduction for your Charitable car donation isn't very different from any other gift to charity. However, car, vehicle and vessel donations are a little more complicated than most charitable contributions because the value of the car determines the form that must be filed with the IRS—and the value of the car can only be determined in a few specific ways. Keep in mind that a Charitable Organization should not determine the value. But there are a few ways we can help you here at the Giving Center realize the maximum financial benefit for your charitable donation that will help to benefit those who give and those in need. They include: Repurpose programs for donated gifts, retention and utilization for specialized vehicles, termed leases of vessels and vehicles to meet IRS significant intervening use requirements and more! YOU WILL NOT NEED AN APPRAISAL IF YOUR VEHICLE OR VESSEL IS SOLD!

When you file your annual Tax return (Form 1040), you will need to itemize your deductions for your charitable gift deduction(s) to be counted. The Giving Center will provide you with an acknowledgement that describes the gift. That personal acknowledgement from the Giving Center must be filed with your Form 1040. Additional steps may be necessary as shown. If your car donation was worth less than $250, just keep a record of the gift in your files.
If your car donation was worth $250 to $500, just keep a record of the gift in your files and get an acknowledgement of the gift from the Giving Center. If your car donation was worth more than $500 but NOT more than $5,000, you will need to file a Noncash Charitable Contribution Form 8283 and complete Section A in addition to the previous form. If your car donation was worth more than $5,000, you will need to file a Noncash Charitable Contributions Form 8283 and complete Section B. A written appraisal of your car from a qualified appraiser is also required. No Charitable Organization is allowed to pay for this but the Giving Center can certainly help you find a friendly qualified appraiser to make this step painless.

To simplify matters, make yourself a checklist;
1. Get all of the paperwork done with us! It's really easy!
2. Make sure that the We have EVERYTHING! Car, Title, service records, keys, etc..
3. When and where applicable, take your plates! Some States require you to keep your plates. Additionally, personalized plates do not generally follow the vehicle, they follow the owner.
4. File any needed paperwork with your local DMV or similar office that you no longer own the vehicle but have made a charitable donation to release yourself of any liability. Cancel your registration! In some States you may even be due a partial pro rated refund for paid registration fees. This is something we cannot do for you.
5. Notify your Insurance company.
6. We remind you every step of the way!

NOTE: Your state may require that all signatures on the title certificate and application forms be notarized.

The final step in the donation process is the pick-up. We gladly bear all expenses for picking up your car donation when needed and always arrange a pick-up time that will be convenient for the donor.
