An amazing way to give to charity is to donate your old vehicle. These charities will either give your vehicle to a person or a family who is in desperate need, or re-sell them to provide money for financial support.
Many people have a difficult time getting to work or school because of lack of transportation. Yes, there are buses and other methods of travel, but this is not always feasible. Especially when it comes to families. Car charities match up individuals and families with donated vehicles that meet their needs. This single thing can have a huge impact on the quality of their lives.
There are also organizations that you can donate your vehicle to help support the cause of Breast Cancer. In 1998, the nonprofit corporation Breast Cancer Survivors (BSC) was formed to help provide temporary financial support for women going through breast cancer treatment. Whether it is to help pay for medical treatment or to assistance with daily financial needs, BCS has been a blessing to countless number of women. To keep their mission alive they count on donations, fund-raising events, grants and volunteers. This is where you come in by donating your car. In working condition or not, they will take your vehicle as long as it has not been damaged by fire or stripped. Completely free of charge for you, BSC will send out a licensed and bonded towing company to pick-up the vehicle. When your vehicle is picked-up you will receive a release of liability receipt that tells the IRS you are qualified to take a charitable deduction on your tax returns.
Regardless what charity you choose to donate your car to whether it is for families in need or individuals with medical conditions, be sure to follow IRS guidelines and determine the value of the donation before claiming it on your tax returns
