Donate Your Vehicle
Donating your vehicle provides us with a resale opportunity to fund our programs. You benefit by reducing your taxable income and avoiding the costs associated with selling your car – all while supporting an organization you believe in. Please fill out our online form to start the process.
We will arrange timely pick-up of your vehicle and provide documentation for your tax-deductible donation.
Frequently Asked Questions
What can I donate?
We accept most cars, trucks, vans, fleet vehicles, trailers, boats and recreational vehicles, either running or not. Exceptions include older vehicles whose value would not offset the cost of towing.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes, SafePlace is classified with the IRS as non-profit 501 (c)3 charitable organization which makes your donation tax deductible to the full extent of the law. However, individual tax situations are different, so please check with your tax professional to determine how you may benefit from your donation.
What do I need to do to donate my vehicle?
Please fill out the vehicle donation form when you have the title on hand. If you do not have the papers contact us and we can help you.
How is the value of my car determined?
The majority of vehicles donated to SafePlace are auctioned to provide funding for our programs and facilities. In accordance with IRS tax laws, donors who would like a tax deduction can claim the auction value of the vehicle, which will be provided to you by SafePlace once the car has been successfully sold.
How will the car be picked up?
We will make arrangements to have your vehicle towed free of charge and convenient to your schedule.
How long will it take to pick up my car?
Once we have all the necessary information, our tow service will contact you within 24 to 48 business hours to schedule a pick up.
