There’s no better way to help others and fuel your own passion than by making a charitable donation to an effective, high-performing organization that’s making a difference in an area you care about. Why not help local nonprofits here in the Valley of the Sun, while getting a great car donation tax deduction for yourself?
Not every car donation program in Phoenix is the same, and we help you understand how the process works. We’re a full-service vehicle donation partner to many charities, specializing in AZ, CA and NV. Our goal is to assist donors just like you, who want to convert a vehicle you no longer want or need to the greatest possible cash to help a charity. We help nonprofits raise funds efficiently, so their leaders can focus on what they do best: provide services to those who need it.
Typically, we can add 25-50% to a donated vehicle’s value on behalf of your charity – and sometimes much more. This maximizes your tax deduction as a donor, as well as the amount that goes to the nonprofit. Using our unique business model -- based on 35 years’ experience with vehicle repair and acquisition, during which we’ve sold more than 9,000 vehicles -- everyone is better off!
How do we get you the best results? By improving how almost every vehicle looks and runs, then selling it through retail channels. (This is different from others, who typically auction vehicles in their “as is” condition.)
