If you have a car you do not want, there are of ways you can get rid of it. If the car does not run or it needs a lot of expensive repairs, it will be more difficult to sell it to someone. You can have a junk yard haul it away. Depending on the condition of the car and the price of scrap metal, they may give you a few dollars for it or they may charge you a few dollars to take it. You can donate your car charity and receive a tax deduction of at least $500.
The bad news is that many charities will not let you donate your car if it does not run, is in poor shape or is over 10 years old. The good news is that Cars4Charities does not care how old your car is, if it runs or what condition your car is in; they will proudly accept it “dead or alive”. Their simple requirements are that you have a title that has no liens for your car, that the car not be stripped of any of its parts, that the tires be inflated and that the car is parked in a place where it can easily be towed.
Cars4Charities will pick up your car donation fast and free. In return for your charitable contribution, you will get you a tax deduction of $500 or what your car donation is sold for, whatever amount is greater. They will also provide you with the forms you will need to submit with you taxes so that you can claim your valuable tax deduction.
Cars4Charities has hundreds of very deserving charities you can donate car to. Some of those charities include International ones such as Food for the Poor, Freedom From Hunger, the Fund For Peace, Helen Keller International, Partners in Health, the Smile Train, TropicalClinics, etc., National charities ones such as the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association, the American Foundation for the Blind, the American Macular Degeneration Foundation, the American Parkinson Disease Association, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, Autism Speaks, the Brain Trauma Foundation, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the Cancer Research Institute, the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation, the Juvenile Bipolar Research Foundation, the Lam Foundation, the National Association for Down Syndrome, the National Coalition for the Homeless, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, the Prevent Cancer Foundation, Teach for America, as well as many State and hundreds of local charities like food banks, homeless shelters, and various other fine charities.
