Ave Maria Radio has partnered with Vehicles for Charity, another nonprofit organization, to process donated vehicles. Please call 1-866-628-2277 or visit https://www.vehiclesforcharity.org/Donate/AMR.html to make arrangements to donate your vehicle today. Ave Maria Radio will receive 70% of the proceeds from your vehicle donation.
You can donate almost any vehicle, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. The vehicles do not have to be currently running. Your vehicle donation will be sold at an auction or to salvage depending on condition.
All you need to donate a vehicle is a clear title in your name, the vehicle keys, and information about where the car is located and the condition of the car.
A towing company will call you to schedule the pick-up of your vehicle. You will need to give the driver the keys to the vehicle as well as your signed title.
The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to include the IRS form 1098C. Vehicles for Charity will supply this documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.
