Are your lake days growing fewer? Do you have a boat or watercraft you no longer utilize as much as you would like? Consider donating it to a worthy cause right in your community.
Thousands of veterans in the Twin Cities and across the state of Minnesota stand to benefit from donated boats and vehicles. Contribute to those who have served and give back to the community you love â€” all through Veteran Car Donations.
How We Use the Proceeds From Donations
Money raised from your boat donation in Minnesota goes to some terrific services for veterans. Through combined efforts from our charity and nonprofit partners, such services include:
- Transitioning assistance after coming home from deployment
- Job training and career workshops
- Educational assistance in the form of scholarships and tutoring programs
- Constructing mortgage-free homes nationwide, with special accommodations for severely injured veterans
- Funding for the spouses and families of fallen heroes
- Supportive mental health care for individuals living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Public awareness campaigning and promoting the interests of Americaâ€™s injured heroes on Capitol Hill
Supporting those who have fought to protect our ideals of peace, freedom and democracy is a duty we all can rally behind. With more focus on the welfare of our servicemen and servicewomen, we can ensure help is there for those who need it, whether it comes in the form of employment, housing, or psychological and social support for them and their families.
How Donation Can Benefit Donors
Through your support and charitable contribution, a lot of good can be done and some of the good can come back to you. Here are some of the rewarding advantages you can experience when you donate to this worthy cause.
To start, itâ€™s a quick process. Calling or completing the online form and clicking the â€śDonate Nowâ€ť button takes just a few minutes!
Next, you donâ€™t have to worry about the paperwork surrounding the title or transfer of ownership. Our experts can handle it all and issue your tax deduction receipt without delay.
We provide free pickup and towing throughout Minnesota. Hauling the boat away is handled on our end, and you donâ€™t even need to be there when we pick it up.
Donating your boat can relieve the stress of maintenance, repair and selling. Now, you donâ€™t need to deal with all the hassles associated with selling an unwanted boat.
Lastly, by donating through our service, you could receive a substantial tax write-off because we work with IRS-registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations. Simply use the tax-deductible receipt when you itemize your taxes to reduce your taxable income. The amount on the receipt can be calculated based on the fair market value or final selling price.

Get the Ball Rolling With Our Easy Donation Process
Helping veterans in your home state is only a phone call or few clicks away. If you would like to donate and contribute to the programs and services listed above, you can call 877-594-5822. Our courteous staff is ready to take your contact details as well as your boatâ€™s year, make, model and the pickup location. You can also fill out the secure online donation form to bid farewell to your watercraft. After submitting your form, weâ€™ll try to call you back on the same day to confirm your information.
Once your info has been verified, we can take care of the rest. We arrange for a local professional to haul the boat away for free at your convenience. Plus, youâ€™ll receive a towing receipt on the day of pickup releasing you from all liability, as our insurance automatically applies as soon as the boat is towed away.
The next step for your donation is its sale at auction. Within 30 days of its sale, you should receive a 100% tax-deductible sales receipt by mail. Use this when filing your federal income tax return as an itemized deduction. Let us know if you have any questions on filing and weâ€™ll be happy to help.
You could make a real difference in the lives of veterans when you donate your boat or other vehicle. Our donation process is easy, and we work with several nonprofit organizations dedicated to serving our nationâ€™s heroes. To get started, contact us today.
