Winter can be a hard time to be a vehicle owner in most parts of the country, with the ice, snow drifts, lower fuel efficiency and having to warm your car up before you drive. If the woes of winter driving have got you thinking about getting rid of your car, consider donating it to a great cause instead of bothering with all the stress. A vehicle donation to Wheels For Wishes benefits Make-A-Wish and offers you an easy way to get rid of a car you no longer want.
Why donate to Wheels For Wishes? We offer you great benefits and make the donation process easy and stress free. Best of all our program helps Make-A-Wish grant wishes for children facing life-threatening medical conditions.
Get A Tax Deduction For Your 2014 Taxes
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, your donation to Wheels For Wishes will give you the maximum possible tax deduction. When you donate a car, it will be auctioned or recycled and we will issue you a tax-deductible receipt at the time the vehicle is sold. If your vehicle sells for less than $500, you can claim the fair market value of the vehicle up to $500. If it sells for more than $500, you can claim the exact amount for which it sells on your taxes.
Wheels For Wishes Accepts Many Kinds Of Vehicles
Do you have a boat, Jet Ski, RV, camper, motorcycle or fleet vehicle you no longer want? Chances are, we can accept it! Even if your vehicle no longer runs we can accept it in most situations. Mid- to late winter is a great time to start looking at the new models of cars and other vehicles coming out. Donating your old car is an easy way to make room for that new vehicle you’ve been eyeing.
Car Donation Is Beneficial For The Environment
When you donate a vehicle to Wheels For Wishes, it will be auctioned to a new owner to use or recycled. In the United States, automobile recycling is the 16th largest industry and automobiles are the number one recycled item. Roughly 65 percent of a car is steel, which can be recycled to make new vehicles. It is estimated that 95 percent of retired cars are recycled each year. This saves an estimated 85 million barrels of oil a year that would have been used to create new vehicle parts. Plus, when you donate a car, it’s a great opportunity to upgrade to a more efficient model.
