Fundraising with Vehicle Donation

Fund Raisers No Comments »

With the economy in the state that it is in these days, the work that Goodwill Industries is doing is more important than ever. There are so many individuals that are in need of a vehicle, and donation programs in place by these charities are making it possible. This is why so many people are interested in getting more information about the process.

Many individuals have vehicles that are in a state of disrepair that they may have considered useless. However this is not necessarily always true as these charitable vehicle donations often accept vehicles that are no longer running. This is because these charities will auction off the vehicles or fix them in order to donate them to those that desperately need them. This provides a great alternative to those that were considering the junkyard.

The great news about donating your car is that, not only will you be helping out someone in need. You will also be able to benefit yourself from the tax credits that are provided to people who donate. This can often be worth much more to many individuals than they would have received for selling the vehicle.

These fundraisers that are held in order to raise money for these charities are truly the most effective way to get cars to the people who need them. They have proven to be a win-win situation for everyone involved and something that many more people have become interested in lately.

The majority of people that have vehicles they no longer need will end up utilizing a scrap yard. The fact of the matter is that this can sometimes end up costing you time, effort, and money. This is especially true if the vehicle is no longer in working order. With car donation charities, on the other hand, the entire process is free including the pickup of your vehicle. This has been the obvious choice for so many people as scrap yards often charge a fee if your vehicle isn’t running.

What Kind Of Events Do Charities Use Donated Cars In?

There are many ways your auto donation can benefit others and help them get back on their feet in the event of tragedy, unexpected loss or homelessness. Charities such as Goodwill Industries make it their goal to make money off of your donated car to then give to underprivileged persons. Here are three examples of events charities hold and ways your donated automobile give hope to a hurting person, community or family.

Donating the actual car to a family or individual is the most common form of used car donation. You can donate a car to charity for the very purpose of it being given directly to a needy family. Instead of your old, unused car sitting in your driveway and collecting rust, it can be given to someone who needs it! In many cases these cars will be sold to these families at an extremely low price, but in some cases, the cars are given directly to the family or individual. Either way, a needy family benefits from your used, donated car.

Another way charities benefit others through cars is by having a car auction. You donate your car to charity and it is then auctioned off to the highest bidder. This insures that the car is sold at a good price for the funds to be directed toward the needy.

A third way to benefit from car donation is through car shows. Vintage car owners show off their cars in order to attract attention to the certain event. People come to share in the event experience and hear about the benefits of car donation. Food vendor and other types of entertainment may also be involved. In addition to the car show, there may be some used car sales and auctions.

Whatever the event, these funds, donations and benefits are life savers for those in need. Generous people like you who donate their used car will gain a sense of good will and kindness from your gift and those in need will benefit as well.

Car Donation and Vintage Cars

DC Chapters No Comments »

My experience with charities recently is what I would call more than excellent. I like to buy old cars, fix them up, show them, and then sell them. I have more than just a few beautiful, vintage cars which I would like to donate to charity. I did not just want to donate them for daily driving; rather an auction was my desire for these aged beauties. I have been in contact with Goodwill Industries in the Washington D.C. area and they have excellent hearts in regards to humanitarian efforts. Both charities are genuine in their love for people and relate in a professional, charitable manner to all those they encounter.

These companies recommended that I hold a vintage car auction for charity purposes. This would require several others to provide vintage cars for auctions as I only have less than a dozen cars. At any rate, I was impressed with the amount of ideas both of the D. C. charities posed to me and the excitement they showed at my involvement with the community. In the future, I wish to pursue this idea further and possibly hold my auction for charity.

People do not have to hold car auctions to be involved in this great work. Both of these charities accept auto donations and donations of every kind. If you are in need of getting rid of an old broken down car or if you are like me and have a vintage car you would like to be useful to charities and your community, contact the Goodwill Industries for information on how to do this. The process is really quite simple and it is cost free. So, if your car is sitting in your front yard and you don’t know what to do with it, here is a great option!

Donating your car to charity is a perfect way to contribute to society! Auto donation is a form of charity that is on the rise and my heart is personally very attached to cars. I am overjoyed that something as seemingly insignificant as a broken down car can help out a needy family in infinite ways. Car donation is just one of the ways we can show our community we care!

Throwing a Car Donation Event

Events No Comments »

With a little bit of help and a lot of generosity, a car donation event can help bring communities together and provide a sense of goodwill throughout your city. There are many hurting individuals across the nation that do not have the funds to supply their families with a car. This limits their ability to find and keep a job, transport their children to school, sports and events and live everyday life as most of us have become accustomed to. Every family deserves the right to own a car.

That is why individuals, families and charity organizations have come together to make a difference and provide people with basic amenities of life. Events are an excellent way to provide this kind of service! There are literally hundreds of ways to throw an auto donation event but one idea is all that is needed to make a difference. Passing out flyers from home to home, word of mouth invitations and notifying friends who in turn pass the information on to other friends is a common way to get the word out about a “donate your car” event. Charities such as Goodwill Industries are well established, greatly respected charities that benefit greatly from car donations. They throw used car donation events regularly and are always in need of a hand in operating these functions. If you are looking to be involved in a charity event, here is an excellent opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. Or if you hear of one of their events, even if you can’t make it, pass the news on to someone who can! Or donate your used vehicle or old clothing and items you don’t need to charity.

Many people have old cars lying around that they’ve just been too busy to deal with. Encouraging other and being involved yourself with getting these unused cars to charities can make a world of difference in someone’s life. This will benefit not only the person receiving, but also will give you a sense of well being and a possible tax deduction!
