The first thing that comes to mind when people think about vehicle donation is a car or truck, because they are the predominant form of transportation in this country. But there are many other types of transportation, such as motor homes, motorcycles, boats, airplanes, and even wheelchairs that can be used to raise money for charity.

Wheelchairs are the primary, and often times ONLY, mode of transportation for many people. A wheelchair in good shape can be a lifesaver for those in need. Imagine someone needing one desperately and not having one…

Motor homes are another type of vehicle which you can donate. With such high gas prices, and they average motor home getting about 5-6 miles per gallon, family trips have become more of a luxury these days, and thousands of motor homes sit idle now, deteriorating and providing little, if any, benefit. But if you decide to donate a vehicle like a motor home or a fifth wheel, it can be used as housing for people without shelter, or sold by the charity at auction to raise money. Rest assured it will be put to better use than it currently is, that being providing shade for cats and squirrels as it gathers rust in your driveway or back yard.

If you think donating your vehicle will be a time consuming process, don’t fret. One phone call to Goodwill will solve all your worries. Free pickup will be arranged within a day or two, and they will also provide tax documentation necessary for the deduction available on your next tax return.
