Grand Rapids, Michigan Car Donations

Be a Hero to Our Nation’s Struggling Heroes

Have you grown tired of taking your old car to the auto shop and paying for its expensive repairs, parts replacements, and maintenance? We know how you feel, which is why we would like to offer you this solution to end all your car woes: Simply hand over your clunker to us at Veteran Car Donations through our Grand Rapids, Michigan car donations program. We serve the entire state of Michigan, including nearby neighborhoods like Aberdeen Ridge, Bloomfield, Creston, Dean Lake, Eastgate, Franklin, Grand Valley, Huff Park, Kent Hills, Leonard Gardens, Meijer, North Coit, Oakdale, Prescott, Quail Crest, Riverside Park, Summermeadows, Thornapple, Union Square, Valleyview, and Winterwood.

Donating to us means more than just disposing of an unwanted car without the hassles associated with reselling a second-hand vehicle. It’s also giving yourself the distinct honor of becoming a hero to the struggling veterans in your city. These are our former military members who are facing mind-numbing problems such as poverty, unemployment, service-connected disabilities, mental health issues, and homelessness. These challenges prevent them from living normal lives.


How We’ll Use Your Donation

We work with IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations that are devoted to improving the living conditions of our former servicemen and servicewomen. When you hand over a vehicle to our Grand Rapids, Michigan car donations program, we’ll have it auctioned off in one of the best auction houses in your city. The proceeds from the sale of your vehicle go directly to our nonprofit partners.

These nonprofits use the funding to sustain their delivery of vital services to deserving veterans and their families. The services include:

  • Housing assistance for those who are homeless;
  • Employment opportunities;
  • 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 that encourage companies and organizations to support the veteran community.


Our Quick and Convenient Donation Process

We care about our donors as much as we do our former service members, which is why we’ve made our donation process as quick and easy as possible. When you donate a car for charity through us, you only need to contact us, using just a few minutes of your time in the comfort of your home. You can count on us to handle everything once you’ve made up your mind to contribute to our Grand Rapids, MI car donations program.

To get an overview of our hassle-free process to donate an auto, take a look at the guide below:

1. Reach out to us.

Start the process by either calling us at 877-594-5822 or filling out our online donation form. Provide us specific details about the vehicle you’re donating, such as its year, make, model, VIN, working condition, and title availability. We will contact you as soon as we confirm all the information you shared with us. We’ll then schedule your vehicle’s free pickup and towing.

2. We’ll tow away your vehicle for free.

We’ll assign a professional towing company affiliated with us to pick up your vehicle at a date, time, and place convenient for you. The company will issue you a towing receipt on the same day so that you can be released from all liabilities on your vehicle from that point onward. This means you are now free to cancel your vehicle’s DMV registration and insurance coverage.

3. Receive your tax-deductible receipt.

We’ll have your vehicle sold in one of the best auction houses within our network. Within 30 days after the sale, we’ll mail to you your 100% tax-deductible sales receipt. You will need this receipt to claim your tax deduction when you file your itemized federal income tax return in the next tax season.
