If a Donated Golf Cart Tax Deductible?
Even a golf cart donation can be deducted from your taxes! We will happily provide you with a donation receipt so that you can legally take the golf cart donation tax deduction from your taxes. For some, this can be a substantial bonus. Instead of paying taxes on the sale of your old vehicle, you can save money by receiving a tax deduction that decreases the final amount you must pay in income tax. Speak with your tax advisor is you need help taking this deduction successfully.
When you donate a golf cart you are doing more than simply gaining space in your garage. Rather, your donation through Cars2Charities helps make it possible for charitable organizations around the world to continue their good works.

When you're ready to say, “I want to donate my golf cart to charity,” simply call us at 855-520-2100 and one of our expert vehicle coordinators will gather key facts, and get things rolling. It can take as little as 3-5 minutes. Or just click here on this Donate Golf Cart link which will open a brief form that will tell us enough to get things started.

Once we receive your golf cart, we take the time to refurbish your vehicle to the greatest extent possible. We clean, repair or improve your vehicle so that it can bring the very best price on the market. Our network of private buyers know what to look for, and they trust our brand and our integrity when we describe your golf cart's features -- including any flaws, which we always work hard to improve or minimize, so the buyer gets great value too. This results in a win-win for everyone. There is never a cost to you. With Cars2Charities, donating a golf cart or other vehicle has never been easier.
What's the best charity to donate my golf cart to?
At Cars2Charities we believe that you are in the best position to decide where your charitable giving dollars should go -- so we offer you choices. We work with a broad array of organizations -- ranging from animal rescue to human services, children to seniors, veterans, medical research, public TV and radio, and much more. Many donors choose to give to their local house of worship, while others designate their alma mater, or a local school program -- like a booster club.
We also make easy for you to select any charitable organization that you love, but which may not be on our list yet. For example, do you play in golf tournaments that raise funds for something important? You can direct your giving there!
Some donors like to use Charity Navigator's "Top 10" lists as a reference point. On the other hand, if you prefer to keep it super-easy, you can just say "Cars2Charities, go ahead and pick for me -- donate to whoever you think would benefit most." You can also say, "Pick a charity that feeds the hungry, or provides disaster-relief, or ...” simply fill in the blank, with whatever you are passionate about. We do the rest. You're in control every step of the way if you wish.
Is there a golf cart tax deduction?
Yes, even a golf cart donation can be deducted from your taxes. We will provide you with a temporary receipt at the time your golf cart is picked up, and then after it’s sold we will send you a completed IRS Form 1098-C with all the details: how much your golf cart sold for, and how much your charity received. The non-profit organization you chose receives a copy of the same form, so there is always full transparency related to your golf cart donation tax deduction. You get to deduct the full amount of the sale price – including the amount we will have invested to improve your golf cart.
When you donate a golf cart you're doing more than simply gaining space in your garage. Rather, your donation through Cars2Charities helps make it possible for charitable organizations in your local neighborhood and around the world to continue their good work.
