If you want to use this donation as a tax write off, you’ll need to make sure the organization receiving your donation is a non-profit and you can check to see which ones the IRS approves. You’ll receive a receipt from the charity for this tax deduction. So if you have questions you’ll need to communicate with them to make sure you have all the paperwork.



Giving to Those in Need of a CarCA-pic1

Although cities like San Diego, San Francisco and Oakland have great public transportation, vehicles are in high demand – most of the residents commute using cars. Keeping this in mind, if you want your car to go into the hands of someone that needs it donating is a great option. While this sounds simple in theory, you’ll need to let the Department of Motor Vehicles of California know and file a Release of Liability. This document releases you from any liability that may arise after your vehicle is donated. Center for Car Donations has specialists that help you process all your paperwork.

When it comes to donating, doing a bit of research can go a long way. Center for Car Donations can help you along the way. We offer resources that can help you make your decisions and we have connections with every type of charity under the sun
