Help Struggling Veterans in Your City with a Charitable Act
Our former service members have sacrificed a lot. While still on active duty, they put their lives on the line in the war zones overseas, living each day like it was their last. They had to leave their loved ones back home to make sure that all of us Americans remained safe with our rights and freedoms intact.
After coming back home and getting honorably discharged from the service, they had hoped that theyâ€™d no longer face the hardships they experienced during their deployment abroad, especially since theyâ€™re finally reunited with their families. Unfortunately, this didnâ€™t come true for many of our veterans.
Like other locations in the country, Richmond City is home to many veterans who face tough hurdles in their transition to civilian life. These are our former troops who are grappling with unemployment, service-connected disabilities, illnesses, including mental health conditions, and homelessness due to extreme poverty.
How Your Donation Can Help Uplift the Lives of Our Vets
Once we receive your donated vehicle, weâ€™ll have it auctioned off, turning it into a fund-generating tool to sustain the veteran-focused life improvement programs of our IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit partners. These nonprofits use the funding to provide the deserving veterans in your city with the following services:
- Job training and mentoring for veterans who need to find stable and rewarding employment;
- Housing assistance for those who are homeless;
- Financial and other forms of aid for destitute, low-income, and homeless veterans;
- Various forms of assistance for those confined in hospitals;
- Therapeutic activities to help rehabilitate disabled veterans;
- Nature-based psychotherapy, team building, and family dynamics development programs for veterans and their families; and
- Educational scholarships and tutoring support for those who seek to pursue higher education.
Aside from these services, our charity partners sponsor events aimed at encouraging companies and organizations to give back to the veteran community.

Making a Richmond, California car donation only takes a couple of minutes. We made our donation process as quick and easy as possible so that our donors wonâ€™t have to waste their time and effort. Trust us, providing an extremely pleasant giving experience is one of our strongest suits.
Hereâ€™s our three-step donation process:
- Call or click.
You can donate your vehicle over the phone by calling us at 877-594-5822 to give us basic information about yourself and your vehicle. If you prefer to donate your vehicle through our website, simply fill out our donation form here. Be assured that we will keep your personal data confidential.
- Schedule your vehicleâ€™s pickup.
After providing us with the information we need, weâ€™ll verify this and return your call on the same day. Weâ€™ll ask you to set a date, time, and place for your vehicleâ€™s free pickup. Our tow truck will then collect your vehicle. We do not require your presence at the pickup site for as long as you tell us where we can find your keys and title inside your vehicle. As soon as you hand over your vehicle to us, weâ€™ll give you your towing receipt. This document will release you from all liabilities on your donated vehicle from that point onward. With this receipt, you may now cancel your insurance coverage and DMV registration.
- Receive your tax-deductible receipt.
With your vehicle in our hands, weâ€™ll have it auctioned off. Weâ€™ll exert our best effort to sell your vehicle at its highest possible price to maximize the tax deduction you can claim from your donation. After your vehicle gets sold, weâ€™ll send you your 100% tax-deductible sales receipt by mail. Youâ€™ll need this to claim your tax deduction when you file your itemized federal income tax return in the next tax season.
