California Boat Donations

Many people might still not know how the California boat donations received by Veteran Car Donations have been transforming the lives of our former servicemen and women living in America’s most populous state. If you’re among them, we are here to tell you about it. If you are interested in giving back to charity by donating your boat to help local veterans, give us a call at (877) 594-5822 and we will pick up your boat for free. Our process is easy, and you can avoid the hassle of paperwork, enjoy financial benefits and be filled with joy from making a difference.

For over 20 years now, Veteran Car Donations has been generating funds to improve the lives of our veterans and their families through the people’s donations of vehicles, including all types of watercraft.

These funds are then used by the reputable non-profit organizations that we have partnered with to provide various forms of assistance to needy veterans and their families. Their programs extend such services as job training, tutoring, academic scholarship, adaptive and mortgage-free housing, mental and physical healthcare and counseling.

With our government unable to provide for all the needs of our veterans due to their enormous number and apparently insufficient government resources, the programs by our non-profit partners serve to fill in the gaps in the government service to our veterans. However, we and our charity partners could not do anything without the support of our generous donors. We hope you’re one of them.

If you’ve always wanted to show our veterans your gratitude for their invaluable service to our nation, you might as well do it by taking part in our California boat donation program. Not only do you dispose of a no-longer-used vessel, you also get to transform lives with it.


How Our Donation Process Works

Are you having problems finding the right boat donation program in California? Don’t know a trusted organization that caters very well to their donors? Veteran Car Donations will be more than happy to be of service!

If you’re the type who loathes paperwork, you’ll certainly love to work with us. We handle everything, including the processing of your tax documents and the mailing of your tax-deductible sales receipt. Also, we’ll be taking care of the vehicle towing, and you won’t be paying even a single dime for it!

Our quick and simple California boat donations process consists of just three easy steps:

  • Contact us.

You may either fill out our online donation form or give us a call at 877-594-5822. We’ll gather certain details about your watercraft, after which we’ll agree on a time and date for its pickup.

  • We pick up your boat.

We’ll make an arrangement with a licensed towing company to pick up your boat, usually a day or two after you notify us of your donation. You don’t have to be present when we haul your boat away. Just see to it that you have the proof of boat ownership. The towing company will give you a tow receipt. This releases you from all liability on the boat you’re donating from that point forward. That receipt also allows you to take the minimum tax deduction without further paperwork.

We put your donated boat up for auction, with the proceeds going to our non-profit partners. Expect a 100-percept tax-deductible receipt in your mailbox within 30 days after we sold your boat. The amount indicated in the receipt will serve as the basis of your tax deduction claim when you file your itemized federal tax return.


The Types of Boats You Can Donate

One of the many good things about our California boat donations program is that we’re not picky when it comes to boat donations. We can accept boats that are no longer in working condition as long as we see that they’re still capable of generating funds. Just talk to us if you’re having uncertainties about your boat’s eligibility, and we’ll gladly help you out.

We accept watercraft such as motorboats, yachts, catamaran boats, cruise ships, drift boats, houseboats, sailboats, fishing boats, pontoon boats and personal watercraft such as jet skis. 

We are also very much open to multiple California boat donations. Call us at 877-594-5822 today!


Benefits for Boat Donors

When you work with Veteran Car Donations, you not only support our veterans and their families; you also give yourself a treat since you’ll be receiving several perks when you donate your boat. It’s not just the huge tax deductions or the convenient and stress-free donation process we’re talking about here. As a matter of fact, there’s a whole lot more.

By donating to our California boat donations program, you get:

  • A cost-effective way to get rid of an unwanted watercraft

There’s no need for you to pay for a professional towing service since everything’s on us!

  • Avoid the hassles and headaches of dealing with paperwork

We’ll take care of anything related to this.

  • Avoid the stressful process of trying to sell your old boat to dispose of it

Simply donating your boat to us takes out all the stress that you’d experience in trying to sell an old boat.

Now that you’ve canceled your boat’s insurance and registration, you don’t have to pay the fees for these anymore.

Knowing that you’re making a difference in the lives of our veterans with your boat donation will give you that feeling of satisfaction that’s simply priceless.
