Many charities these days rely on older generations to keep operating, as people under 30 have decreased in their charitable offerings. This can often be bad news for nonprofits, and impede their ability to operate in many ways.
Donating your car, boat, or other vehicle to a charity is an amazing idea. Sometimes we have vehicles sitting around that we really don’t need. There are many charities that can benefit immensely from a donation such as this.
In addition to cars and boats, you can donate vehicles such as RVs, fleet vehicles, trucks, vans, motorcycles, and trailers. Many people have these vehicles just sitting around on their property, or they are seldom used. Even if they are used often, but you’re thinking of upgrading or getting a different vehicle, donation is a great idea.
Donating your vehicle to a charity is also a lot easier than selling it yourself. You might receive the money upfront selling it yourself, but then you have to go through all of the paperwork and find a buyer. Choosing to donate to a charity not only helps other people, but alleviates the paperwork, DMV visits, and the hassle of finding a buyer and negotiating a price.
Another really great thing about donating your vehicle is that you can choose the charity the proceeds from your vehicle will go to by choosing one of our nonprofit partners on Donateforcharity.com. Choose from any number of charities that you are passionate about and feel like you are really making a difference in the lives of others.
Your vehicle can be donated in all 50 states. It typically takes up to 3 business days after you tell us to proceed with the donation to have the vehicle picked up. Sometimes the pickup happens sooner than that! This is an excellent way to have a vehicle moved and out of your way. Cars don’t necessarily have to be running for you to donate them, but in general cars that do run and drive command higher prices when selling them.
Choosing to donate your vehicle to a charity you feel is deserving is a very rewarding experience. Knowing that you have done something good in your life – something amazing for other people – provides an intense feeling of self worth and accomplishment.
