FAQ: Donating a Car to CARE

What can I donate?

We can accept almost all car donations. We also accept donated trucks, motorcycles, boats, snowmobiles, trailers, and recreational vehicles. If you would like to donate your car, please go to our Car Donation Wizard, or call 1-888-755-5452.

How much of the money from the sale of my vehicle goes back to CARE?

Donating a vehicle to charity can be confusing. Many charity car donation programs promise to help the charities but are run by third-party processors that return very little to the charity. Our partners at Advanced Remarketing Services return a higher percentage than other vehicle processing entities. View our car donation tips for more info on how to maximize your charitable car or other vehicle donation.

What documents do I need to donate a car to charity?

Our Car Donation Wizard will tell you what is required in your state. Most states require that you have a clear title to the vehicle; some states also require a notarized signature to complete a donation. If you cannot locate or have lost the certificate of title, call us. We can help you obtain the proper documentation.

How do I receive the tax deduction when I donate my vehicle?

Visit our Tax Benefits of Your Charitable Vehicle Donation page for information regarding tax deductions.
