Although the United States government has been constantly providing assistance to millions of our veterans over the years, there are still thousands who need help.
This is why Veteran Car Donations in Pomona, California, together with our military and veteran nonprofit organization partners, is reaching out and lending a helping hand to our suffering veterans.
We run our Pomona, California car donations program and other similar programs across the nation. Our mission is to generate funds so that we can provide support to veterans and their families. We aim to ease their burdens as we understand how hard transitioning to civilian life is. Our definition of â€śassistanceâ€ť is not limited to short-term help but to transform veteranâ€™s lives.
The proceeds of your Pomona, California charity auto donations will fund our nonprofit partnersâ€™ programs for the benefit of our struggling retired military personnel. Here are a few of the programs we have available for veterans.
We help build mortgage-free specially adapted houses for homeless handicapped veterans. The current rate of the homeless veteran population is at 19 percent, which is higher than the civilianâ€™s homeless population rate.
We also provide educational assistance and skills and job training programs to help veterans become more competitive during job applications. These programs aim to counter the fast-rising number of veterans who are at risk of being homeless, which has been placed at 1.4 million.
Your contributions to our Pomona,Â CaliforniaÂ car donations will also fund our grief counseling program for active and retired troops and their families. This project is meant to address the mental health issues that afflict our soldiers soon after their retirement. Records show that in the past six years, 20 percent of the troops we deployed in Iraq were found to be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental health concerns.
This program is also aimed at preventing troubled veterans from committing suicide due to poverty and lack of support.
Benefits for Car Donors, Too
Donating your vehicle to our Pomona, California car donations program benefits not only our veterans. Donors, too, have their own set of benefits.
One of the benefits you will have when donating your vehicle to us is being eligible to file a top tax deduction right after your vehicle is towed.

Why should you consider donating your vehicle?
Contributing a car to a donation program is a great way to support your community and veterans in need. There are about 3,400 former service men and women that reside in Pomona. Moreover, the poverty rate in this area for veterans is more than 5%. Your generous donation can help provide essential resources and support for these individuals.
What steps should you take to donate a used automobile to charity?
When youâ€™re ready to donate, consider researching nonprofit organizations in your area. Be sure to select one that has IRS-approved 501(c)(3) status. Additional steps may involve contacting a local DMV to make updates to the vehicleâ€™s title. You may also need to transfer ownership of the car and cancel the registration. The local DMV in Pomona is located at 1600 S Garey Avenue, which is north of Garey High School.
What documentation is needed to make a car donation?
To donate an old or unused vehicle, youâ€™ll need to provide the proper documentation, such as a valid title. Youâ€™ll also need to obtain paperwork from the charitable organization to make a tax deduction. This documentation may include your name, car VIN number, donation date and a statement of benefits received.Â
How can you obtain a tax deduction for a vehicle donation?
You can claim a tax deduction by itemizing on your tax return. You can deduct the amount that the organization received after selling the automobile at auction, as long as you have a receipt as proof of your contribution. In some cases, you may be able to deduct the fair market value of the car, but only if specific conditions are met.
