There are 19.5 million veterans in the United States, according to the most recent (2016) statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau. Although this number is smaller than those reported in previous years, more servicemen and women are being discharged or are expected to face discharge. Whatever the current number of veterans at this very moment, theyâ€™re still too many to be served fully by the government, considering the limited resources allotted for our nationâ€™s heroes.
We at Veteran Car Donations, together with our reputable nonprofit organization partners, have taken upon ourselves the mission of helping fill the gaps in government service to our veteran population. We generate funds through car donation programs all over the country for use by our nonprofit partners in providing essential services to our underserved former members of the U.S, armed forces.
Here, we have set up our Fort Washington, Pennsylvania car donations program to cater to the veterans of the state who are facing tremendous challenges including lack of income due to unemployment, inability to secure government benefits, severe service-connected physical injuries, untreated mental health problems such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and homelessness as a result of poverty and lack of suitable housing facilities for them.
Our veterans fully deserve whatever assistance we give them considering the invaluable service theyâ€™ve done for our country. They are our nationâ€™s heroes who courageously responded to the call of becoming protectors of our country and keepers of peace and security.
Are you wondering how you could effectively help our veterans? Consider donating a car to Veteran Car Donations through our Fort Washington, Pennsylvania car donations program.
How to Donate a Car for the Benefit of Our Veterans
Your car donation in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania can go a long way in providing assistance to many of our veterans. You can donate not just your old and battered car but also other unwanted vehicles such as trucks, vans, motorcycles, SUVs, ATVs, motorized wheelchairs, riding lawn mowers, tractors, golf carts, campers, jet skis, and boats.
Knowing how precious your time is, weâ€™ve made sure that our Fort Washington, Pennsylvania car donations process is as quick and hassle-free as possible. In just five minutes, you can initiate the donation process, after which weâ€™ll take over and do the rest.
To give you a better idea of how fast, easy, and convenient our car donations process is, check out the three simple steps below:
- Step 1: Fill out our online donation form or call 877-594-5822.
We would need just a few details like your contact information, your vehicleâ€™s year, make and model, mileage, and VIN.Â You can also make a short comment about the vehicle, stating its running condition. If you can upload a photo of the vehicle, so much the better!
- Step 2: Allow us to pick up your vehicle at your convenience for free.
A local towing company will show up on your preferred date, time and place of pickup. You donâ€™t have to pay for the towing service, and you donâ€™t even have to be there when they take away your car. The towing company will give you a tow receipt acknowledging that your vehicle was picked up for donation. This releases you from all liability on the car you’re donating from that point forward. You can now de-register your car and cancel your insurance coverage. That receipt also allows you to take the minimum tax deduction without further paperwork.
Step 3: Receive your maximized tax deduction.
Before taking your car to the best auction house that we know of, we will take care of refurbishing it to increase its sale value. This is for our mutual advantage: With your car fetching its highest possible price point, we get more proceeds from your donation and you get maximized tax deduction. Once we have sold your donated vehicle, we will send you a 100-percent tax-deductible sales receipt several days later. The amount indicated in the receipt will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim when you file your itemized federal tax return for the next tax-filing season.
How Youâ€™ll Serve Our Veterans with Your Car Donation
The proceeds that we collect from the sale of your donated car will be used to support the various veterans assistance programs lined up by our IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofit partners including Homes for Our Troops, Soldiersâ€™ Angels, Serving Veterans Inc. and Heroes on the Water.
With your participation in our Fort Washington, Pennsylvania car donations program, weâ€™ll be able to sustain and hopefully even expand the services weâ€™re giving to our veterans and their families, some of which are:
- Job training and mentoring for unemployed former servicemen and women
- Educational assistance and scholarship programs for those seeking to finish college
- Grief counseling for the families of fallen heroes
- Accessible healthcare facilities as well as mental health services
- National mortgage-free and specially adapted housing for the homeless and physically handicapped veterans
- Basic needs assistance
- Transitioning support for new veterans
- Public awareness drives to let the people know of the deeds and needs of our veterans and how to help them
