That old car sitting forlornly in your garage unused for months can serve as a life-changing instrument for veterans in your city who are facing a variety of woes. That will happen once you donate it to us at Veteran Car Donations through our Peoria, Illinois car donations program.
Over the years, we have partnered with some of our nationâ€™s leading military and veteran nonprofit organizations. Like us, they are committed to transforming the lives of our hard-pressed veterans and their families.
These are our former service members who are burdened with service-connected disabilities and mental health disorders, those who canâ€™t find decent jobs, and those who have fallen deep into poverty for lack of support, forcing them out of their homes to live as homeless people begging for alms on the street.
Our job is to fund the life-enhancement programs of our nonprofit partners by selling the vehicles that are donated to us. We then distribute the proceeds to our charity partners.
These IRS-approved 501(c)3 nonprofits use the funding to provide deserving veterans and their families in Peoria with quality health care, financial aid, housing assistance, employment opportunities, family support, educational scholarships, psychotherapy services, and many other benefits.
With all these benefits that your Peoria, Illinois car donation can help provide to the veteran community in your city, you will surely touch the hearts of our heroes.
How to Make a Peoria, Illinois Car Donation
Donating a vehicle to Veteran Car Donations is incredibly easy and simple because our team handles most of the heavy lifting.Â
Here is a simple three-step guide to our Peoria, Illinois car donations process to give you a better idea of how easy it is to donate to us.
- 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 on this website.
- Schedule your vehicleâ€™s free pickup and towing.
After providing us all the information we need, weâ€™ll verify this and return your call on the same day. Weâ€™ll then ask you to set a date, time, and place for your vehicleâ€™s free pickup and towing. 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 in your vehicle we can find your keys and title. Before we take your vehicle, 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 carâ€™s 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.
