How Your Donation Will Impact Lives of Needy Veterans

Many of our former service members are having a hard time fitting themselves into our civilian society for a variety of reasons. For one thing, it’s hard for them to secure a decent source of income, which they need to support themselves and their families. This is mainly because they can’t find suitable civilian jobs. Some are suffering from service-connected disabilities and illnesses, including mental health disorders. For lack of support, others have become homeless and forced to beg for alms on the street.

Your participation in our program for car donations in Detroit will greatly benefit the struggling veterans in your city.

Veteran Car Donations has teamed up with reputable IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that provide solutions to the challenges confronting many of our former service members.

We’ll have your donated vehicle auctioned off, with the proceeds used to support the various life-enhancement programs of our nonprofit partners. The programs provide their veteran beneficiaries with the following services:

  • Housing assistance for those who are homeless;
  • Educational scholarships and tutoring support for those who seek to pursue higher education;
  • Job training and mentoring for veterans who need to find stable and rewarding employment;
  • 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
  • Peer support for ailing veterans, their families, and caregivers.

Aside from these services, our charity partners sponsor events aimed at encouraging companies and organizations to give back to the veteran community.

How to Make Car Donations in Detroit

We want you to have the most satisfying experience when you make auto donations for veterans with us. That’s why we’ll make sure that you’ll go through the smoothest, quickest, and most convenient donation process. You can count on our team to do all the work for you.

Here are the three easy steps to make car donations for veterans:

1. Contact us.

You can begin to donate a car to a veterans’ charity by giving us a call at 877-594-5822 or filling out our secure online donation form here. We’ll need to have your name and contact information, as well as your vehicle’s year, make, model, and mileage. We’ll also ask you to confirm if you have the vehicle’s title with you and to give us an idea about your car’s working condition.

2. We tow your vehicle for free and at your convenience.

As soon as we receive your request and verify your given information, we’ll get in touch with you as soon as possible to schedule your vehicle’s fast and free pickup. We’ll let you pick the date and time for us to collect your donation. A professional towing company will collect your car from a location of your choice and at no cost to you. You’ll receive a towing receipt from us on the same day. This will allow you to cancel your car’s insurance coverage and de-register your car from your local DMV.

3. Receive your tax-deductible receipt by mail.

Following the sale of your vehicle, we’ll mail to you your 100% tax-deductible sales receipt. You can use this to claim your tax deduction when you file your itemized federal income tax return in the next tax season.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call us at 877-594-5822. You may also send us a message here. Check out our FAQs page for more information on our vehicle donations program.

Of these, most served during Vietnam as well as the First and Second Gulf Wars. Less than 700 World War II veterans were still living in the city as of the last count.
