What Happens When I Donate a Car to Charity?

When you donate your car to charity, the vehicle is sold to the highest bidder through a well-established charity vehicle auction. Nonprofits need the proceeds generated from selling cars at auction. Those proceeds go to help continue the important work nonprofit organizations accomplish in your community. 

  1. To donate a car to charity, first choose a non-profit from our List of Charities.
  2. Fill out a Charity Car Donation Pick Up Form or call our toll free number at 800-269-6814. Generally, you will be able to speak to a live donor representative, seven days a week (Pacific Time: Monday through Friday, 5 am to 7 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm). You can call seven days a week regarding vehicle donations and their information, and we will call you back at the time you specify.
  3. Your information is entered into our computer system right away and forwarded to a local towing company.
  4. If you leave a call or voice mail during business hours we will typically attempt to contact you within 1 hour. Messages after hours will be responded to the next day. Please have the Title with the vehicle at the time it is picked up.
    1. If you provide us with an email address we will send you a temporary receipt via email along with the direct phone number to the towing company. If you have any questions or require additional assistance you can reach us at ddmgroup@iaai.com.

  5. The tow driver will deliver your tax receipt at the time the vehicle is picked up.
  6. Per current IRS guidelines, if your donated vehicle/vessel sells for under $500 the receipt you receive at the time the vehicle is picked up is all you need for filing your taxes. If your donation sells for over $500 you will be provided with a supplemental receipt showing the sale price and may write off as a deduction an amount up to the sale price.

When you donate your car to charity, you really help those in need. Thank you for your interest.
