What is the first step to making a vehicle donation?

Find the Charity that Suits Your Goals

So you've decided to donate your vehicle to charity, but don't know how to start. Don't worry. You won't have trouble finding a charity, but it may be a challenge deciding which one to use.
Search online and you'll find thousands of charities offering to take your used vehicles to benefit their causes. To simplify your search decide which cause you want to help. AIDS prevention? Animal rescue? Cancer research?
Then look for an established charity in your community. Make sure it is registered as a 501(c)3. Some organizations have tried to pass themselves off as charities for vehicle donations. If you have questions, contact the consumer division of your state's Attorney General's Office. The AG should have a list of all registered charities in your state.
