Tips to Donate Cars to Our Charity

If you’re thinking about getting rid of the old car that’s cluttering up your yard, consider donating it to the American Relief Foundation. Doing so will earn you a juicy tax deduction, and save you the hassle of selling it. The best part about it is that your generous donation goes toward helping children and families in need.

  • Take the direct route. We have a hassle-free donation process, so there is no need to use a middleman. A middleman will often sell the vehicle and keep a portion of the proceeds for himself. This can have an impact on the children and families we serve by reducing the amount of help we can give them.

  • Keep a paper trail. If your donated car is worth more than $500, you’ll have to fill out an 8283 form and attach it to your IRS returns.

  • Clean out your belongings. Before you give the car to charity, check the glove box, trunk, and side compartments to make sure you remove all of your personal paperwork and belongings. You never want to leave items in the vehicle that contain your SSN or financial information.

When you donate to our charity, you can help children and families who need a hand. Your generosity will earn you a tax deduction, as well as the tingly feeling of knowing you used your unwanted vehicle to make a difference in a child’s life. It’s a win, win for everyone.
