Summer is well upon us, and as temperatures rise in Southern California,…
We’re excited to share another way to support AFC! Donate your car through the nonprofit social enterprise, CARS (Charitable Adult Rides and Services). If you’re thinking of selling your vehicle, whether it runs or not, please consider this option. And “vehicle” means cars, trucks, trailers, boats, RVs, motorcycles, campers, and off-road vehicles.
Benefits of Donating Your Vehicle
- It’s easy to do and free. There is no cost to you, the donor.
- Vehicle donations are tax-deductible and could reduce your taxable income when taxes are itemized. Donation receipts are provided.
- Skip the costs and hassles associated with selling a car, like paying for advertising and insurance, or for car repairs to keep your car in running condition while you wait for a buyer.
- It’s better than a low trade-in offer.
- Avoid the costs of keeping a car, such as gasoline, registration, insurance, car repairs, and more.
- Free up space in your garage or driveway and/or stop paying for parking, if you live in a large city.
- Donating to AFC feels good and makes a difference.
How the Donation Process Works
It’s easy to do! You can donate by clicking here for AFC’s account listing on the CARS website and completing the online form.
Or you can call 855-500-RIDE (7433) seven days a week during their regular business hours (5:00 am to 9:00 pm PT), and the CARS Vehicle Donor Support Team will walk you through the donation form over the phone and help you arrange for your free pick-up.
CARS provides convenient pick-up and towing for vehicle donations just about anywhere in all 50 states. So, if you have friends or family members in other states, they can donate their cars, too.
All expenses are deducted from the gross sales price. CARS works with a very large network of nationwide and independent suppliers to sell your vehicle and maximize donation proceeds. Donated vehicles are sold through used-car markets and provide crucial funding for AFC as well as other nonprofit programs and services making an impact in communities all over the world.
Thank you for considering donating your vehicle via CARS to support AFC.
