What can I donate?
You can donate most any vehicle, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. The vehicles do not have to be currently running. Your vehicle donation will be sold at an auction or to salvage depending on condition. Call 1-866-628-2277 to make arrangements to donate your vehicle.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes, all donations qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return. Ave Maria Radio has partnered with Vehicles For Charity, also a nonprofit charity, to process donated vehicles. Please call 1-866-628-2277 with any questions you may have and to make arrangements to donate your vehicle.
What do I need to donate my car?
The title to the car must be in your name. We will also need some information about where the car is located and the condition of the car. This will assist us in scheduling appropriate towing arrangements.
Will you pick up my car?
A towing company will call you to schedule the pick-up of your vehicle. You will need to give the driver the keys to the vehicle as well as your signed title.
How is the value of my car determined?
The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to include the IRS form 1098C. Vehicles for Charity will supply this documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.
