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.
