Vehicle donations are such a critical source of revenue for charities that just about every major organization solicits them.
Charities with vehicle donation programs range from the American Lung Association and the American Cancer Society to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Humane Society of the United States. Sometimes churches will accept car donations and other vehicle donations, as will public TV and radio stations.
Identify you favorite charity and find out if you can donate your vehicle. Often your local United Way can help. Some smaller, community charities may not take vehicle donations, simply because they do not have a program in place to process the vehicles. There also are dozens of fundraising umbrella groups that provide vehicle donation programs for the charities they represent.
With all the choices for charities, it is incumbent on the donor to make sure that the organization is registered in the state where they live. Check with the state Attorney General's Office.
