Donate Car For Charity Tip: There are so many solicitations by car charities for donations that it may be difficult to decide which to choose. It is a good idea to do some research first, and follow the advice of respected organizations that monitor charitable giving.
The American Institute of Philanthropy supports the practice of automobile donations, especially to charities that will use the vehicles in their programs.
These services may be transporting people with disabilities to doctors' appointments, helping parents on welfare get to work, or delivering supplies and food to the needy.
The American Institute of Philanthropy notes that when a charity uses an automobile donation, rather than reselling the car at a reduced price, the organization is getting the full value of the donation.
The United Way, which represents many community-based organizations, is a good resource to contact when donating cars. The organization can point donors to community-based charities that offer automobile donation programs.
