The simple truth is that donating a car is a very intimate process for many people therefore, if you are like many others, before you are willing to donate your automobile, you want a few questions answered. Here are some of the most commonly asked vehicle donation questions and the best answers that I can give to each one of them:

Question: What are the benefits of donating a car?

Answer: There are a few benefits to donating a car. When it comes down to it, the most obvious benefit is that when you donate a vehicle, you make the decision to help your community. Vehicle donations provide much of the funding that charities use to do great things like save animals, empower the disabled, feed and shelter the homeless and even research things like cures for childhood cancer! Simply making the decision to donate an unwanted vehicle and knowing that it will do one of these things to help people in your community really feels good.

Another benefit to donating a car is the tax deduction that comes along with it. As with any donation, every car donations will result in a tax deduction receipt given to the donor of the car. If the car donation generates proceeds below $500, the consumer who donated the car will be given a tax deduction receipt of $500. However, if the car donation generates proceeds in excess of $500, then the consumer will receive a tax deduction receipt equal to the amount of money that the sale of the automobile donation generated.

Question: Where can I donate a car?
