How do I find out if the organization to or through which I am donating is legitimate?

Ask what you, as a donor, need to do before you can donate.

Your responsibilities as a donor should generally be limited to determining the fair market value of the vehicle you are donating, obtaining and presenting the title, and then transferring liability. You will also want to make sure you remove personal belongings from the vehicle. If the car donation program asks you to do more than this or to undertake costs, do more investigation about the program and be sure you understand the guidelines and standards in your state.
