If you own a yacht that you donâ€™t want to keep but also donâ€™t want to sell on your own, Veteran Car Donations can help. We accept yacht donations and use the proceeds from their sale at auction to fund nonprofits that deliver help to veterans in need throughout Virginia. Youâ€™ll be supporting a worthy cause, ridding yourself of an unwanted boat and setting yourself up for a large tax deduction.Â
What Yacht Donations Do for Veterans in Need
When you choose to donate your yacht to us, youâ€™ll be providing direct financial support to a range of veteran-focused, certified 501(c)3 nonprofits. These organizations are dedicated to helping former U.S. servicemen and servicewomen who are experiencing some significant challenges in their lives. Sales from the yacht donations we accept are used to provide services that include:Â
- financial support for veterans with low income and those experiencing homelessness;
- assistance for veterans in military hospitals;
- treatment for those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental health issues;
- programs to help them find meaningful employment;
- therapy for veterans who need help reintegrating into society; and
- sponsored events that encourage organizations to give back to the veteran community.

There are more than 674,000 veterans living in Virginia at last count. The majority served in either the First Gulf War or the Second Gulf War, with nearly 65% of the stateâ€™s veteran population serving during those conflicts. Of the remainder, the majority served in Vietnam. Most Virginia veterans are of the ages 55 and older. Across the state, nearly 5% of veterans live in poverty.
