Reasons To Donate Your Car

People donate cars for all sorts of reasons, and most of the time, they have more than one.


Car donations help people save significant amounts of money on their federal and state income tax returns. Accountants say that car donations are some of the most highly-overlooked tax deductions. Donating a car is a great way to lessen the impact of a large tax bill or help maximize your return.


Charities gladly accept car donations. They have found concrete ways to take old vehicles and put them to good use. Gift My Ride provides information about local organizations and national corporations that accept car donations, and the information you need to decide which one is right for you. Even old cars can be very valuable to the right organization, and the charity you choose will be very grateful for your donation.

The Environment

Yes, it’s true: Even the environment can benefit from your car donation. Cars that are twenty years old emit significantly higher amounts of greenhouse gases than cars manufactured today. Even if you’re just looking for an excuse to buy a new car, donating your old vehicle is a great way to help the community and increase your comfort at the same time.

The long and short of it is this: Car donations help people who need it. In fact, there really is no downside to donating your old car. Gift My Ride is here to help you do your research, find local charities, and figure out the best way to give your car to charity. Donating your car saves you money, helps people, and makes a positive impact on the environment. Our goal is to help you find the best way to help others. If there’s anything we can do to make the process easier for you, please don’t hesitate to ask.
