Perhaps youâ€™ve been meaning to turn your rusty old car into a weekend project for the past few months but never really gotten around to doing it. What used to be one of your prized possessions is now quickly turning into an eyesore, and thatâ€™s causing your neighbors to give you the stink eye.
Did you know that with just a single vehicle donation, you can provide vital assistance to our veterans who are going through a rough patch in their lives? Contrary to what you might have expected, our countryâ€™s former servicemen and servicewomen donâ€™t always come home to a bed of roses. Many of them are homeless, jobless, and are struggling with mental health issues or severe service-related injuries.
Although the government is providing them with the assistance they deserve, there remains this yawning gap of service that needs to be filled. Thatâ€™s the reason why we are here: to provide relief to those needy veterans who for one reason or another have failed to receive aid from the government.
What We Can Do to Help Our Heroes
Veteran Car Donations is the online donation platform for the vehicle donation programs of IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations such as Soldierâ€™s Angels, Heroes on Water, American Freedom Foundation, and Healing Arizona Veterans. On behalf of our charity partners, we accept nearly all types of vehicles from our donors and sell them at auctions, using the proceeds to help finance the programs and services that our nonprofit partners provide to their veteran beneficiaries.
Thus, thanks to the vehicle donations we receive, our nonprofit partners are able to deliver the following benefits to our nationâ€™s heroes:
- Mortgage-free retrofit homes specially designed for vets with physical disabilities caused by service-related injuries;
- Mortgage-free homes to homeless veterans and their families;
- Free access to mental health care facilities for those who are suffering from service-connected mental disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, depression, and anxiety;
- General transitioning assistance for veterans who recently separated from the service;
- Job training and job placements for those who want to upgrade their skill set;
- Educational scholarships and tutoring support for those who want to pursue their education;
- Basic needs assistance for impoverished veterans and their families;
- Grief counseling for the families of fallen heroes.

Top Reasons Why Joining Salem, Oregon Car Donations is the Right Solution for You
The best thing about donating a vehicle to charity is that youâ€™ll receive outstanding rewards for your generosity. Check out this list of benefits youâ€™ll get to enjoy when you join our program:
- Avoid the hassles of reselling your own used vehicle yourself.
This means you donâ€™t have to look for interested buyers, show and transport your vehicle, deal with inveterate hagglers, set all the paperwork in order, and pay for the cost of repairs and retouches that your vehicle needs to get a good selling price.
- Stop spending a fortune on maintenance and repairs.
You wonâ€™t have to take your clapped-out vehicle to the auto shop for the nth time. Think about the money youâ€™ll get to save when you quit paying for the maintenance and repairs of a vehicle that you no longer use.
- Claim an equitable tax deduction.
IRS allows you to claimÂ an equitableÂ tax deductionÂ for your donation. The deductible amount will depend either on the fair market value or final selling price of your vehicle. If your vehicle sells for less than $500, you can claim as your tax write-off either the amount of which the car was sold for or the carâ€™s fair market value up to $500, whichever is higher. On the other hand, if your car sells for more than $500, you can claim the exact selling price as your tax deduction.
- Get rid of your extra vehicle in the most convenient way.
Our donation process is as easy as 1-2-3! Plus, we offer free pickup and towing!
