Why Donate Your Vehicle Before December 31st?
There must be some good reasons when someone asks, “Why donate your vehicle before December 31st?”
Aside from the fact that the holiday season is always the best time to reach out and lend a hand to the poor, homeless, hungry, and sick, Veteran Car Donations can give you other good reasons why you should highly consider donating your vehicle before the month of December ends.
Reasons Why You Should Donate Your Car Before 2018 Ends
There are at least four good reasons why donating your old and unwanted vehicles to charity is most feasible at this time of the year:
- Your help is needed TODAY!
Regardless of the time element, nonprofit organizations rely on the funds they receive from donations to deliver much-needed services to the needy. However, it’s important to note that for most charities, a huge chunk of their revenue is received between the months of October and December.
The nonprofit organizations that bear the brunt of leaner giving months are the smaller ones. To these smaller charities, the month when giving is at its lowest point can only mean lesser supplies, more limited output, and a marked decrease in the overall output of their services to those who need them. In other words, when the end-of-the-year season of a small charity goes really bad, there’s a big chance that it’s going to cease its operations.
- Your unwanted clunker’s worth is more than you think!
Did you know that the proceeds generated from a single car donation are roughly two or three times larger than the cost of what you would choose to give as an individual gift? That beater of yours that’s leaving those oil spots on its parking slot is worth more to the nonprofit you choose to help. In fact, the average amount that car donations yield is so much more than what a regular person can write a check for.
- The donation process is extremely easy and it’s FREE!
Should you choose to donate to Veteran Car Donations, you’d be surprised at the seamlessness of our donation process. Did we mention that you won’t be spending a single dime from start to finish?
First, you only need to fill out our online donation form. Next, you pick the best time, date, and place that are convenient for you for your vehicle’s free pickup. Lastly, you’ll receive your tax-deductible sales receipt by mail after we auction off your car.
- It’s 100% tax-deductible!
Using the 100% tax-deductible sales receipt that we will send you by mail once your car is sold at auction, you can now claim your tax deduction based on the amount indicated on the receipt. You can do that when you file your itemized federal income tax return this upcoming tax-filing season. To be able to beat the deadline for claiming tax exemptions, you have to make your car donation before December 31, 2018. That’s one of the compelling reasons for making your vehicle donations before the year ends.
Give Back Today!
Receiving a hefty tax deduction that can significantly lower your tax bill is just one of the many rewards you’ll get from Veteran Car Donations for your charitable contribution. None of the rewards is as significant as the assistance that your vehicle donation will provide to our struggling veterans. These are the men and women who fought for us, made huge sacrifices, and risked their lives to defend our liberties and protect our security. Truly, we owe them a lot!
Sadly, they now face hard times following their discharge or retirement from the service. Even as we celebrate the joy of the holiday season, these veterans grapple with service-connected disabilities, physical and mental health issues, lack of jobs, and homelessness due to poverty and lack of support.
Thanks to your vehicle donation, we will be able to bring some cheer to our heroes this holiday season. We will auction off your donated vehicle and use the proceeds to help our nonprofit partners in providing them with mortgage-free and specially adapted homes, free physical and mental health care services, educational scholarships, career development, employment opportunities, transition assistance, and many other benefits.
You can donate to Veteran Car Donations by either calling us or filling out our online donation form. We accept vehicle donations wherever you are in the United States since we have car donation programs in all 50 states.
