Getting too friendly with your auto mechanic?
Did you know you can have the advantages of a new set of wheels and benefit someone in need at the same time? AND your finances?! A car donation in Fresno through Cars2Charities enables you to spread the wealth.
Are you a baseball fan who goes to opening day at the Giants or Dodgers every year? It can put some serious miles on your car! When you find you’re at the service center constantly, it sure makes you think about making some changes.
Are you accustomed to just doing a dealer trade-in? We advise against it, mostly because you lose a lot of the value of your car. While dealers keep about 60-70% of your vehicle’s value, when you donate a car to charity you get to write off 100% of its sale price!
And there’s one more thing about dealers. Some students at the USC Marshall School of Business did a research project finding that you’re getting one more strike against you, because dealers raise the price of the new car they’re selling you. When they see you’re willing to trade in a car, it makes them assume that money is no object. Yikes!
And then there’s the good you can do. Are you a member of the Valley British Auto Club? If so, you probably go to the Clovis Car Roundup every year which benefits the Fresno Wildlife Rescue. You could also support the Fresno Chaffee Zoo with a vehicle donation in Fresno.
Or do you have other non-profits you’d like to support? Your car charity donation in Fresno can benefit any 501(c)(3) you choose. Do you love kids? We’re happy to direct your donation car to support the Fresno Unified PTA or another entity – just let us know!

Okay, it sounds great to benefit the disadvantaged, or just a non-profit you believe in. But how easy is it? You’d be surprised.
Through Cars2Charities, it’s fast, easy and free. Just call us at 855-520-2100 or contact us online and we send one of our experts out to pick it up. If your car’s on campus at Fresno State or stuck in the lot at your work – no problem! We want it to be convenient for you.
And when we say, “We’ve got this,” we mean it! You don’t have to do anything except figure out which non-profit you want to benefit and go shopping for your next car.
We’ve been in this business for decades and worked with hundreds of charities, so if you need any suggestions, feel free to ask, or check out the non-profits we’ve worked with in the past.
It saves you from the annoyance of photographing, posting and attempting to sell your car. There’s no dealing with flaky buyers (or more accurately, “shoppers”) and no red tape at the DMV. We not only pick up your donation car, we complete the paperwork.
You may be a mover and shaker in the city of Fresno, but whatever your investment portfolio says, you need tax write-offs. Through Cars2Charities, your auto donation in Fresno achieves its maximum value. How?
After we pick up your auto donation, we have technicians who check it over for necessary alterations, so it gets top dollar when we sell it for you. Our research says that, time and again, the value of the vehicle usually goes up about 25-50% as a result!
Do you find yourself scrambling around at tax time? It’s annoying enough to have to get your papers together. Your charity car donation in Fresno gives you a solid, simple tax write-off! Whew – save yourself the effort. Do you use Turbo Tax? Check the site for them to walk you through entering it into your IRS file.
Another advantage for you is that we follow all of the guidelines dictated by the IRS when you make a car, truck or SUV donation in Fresno. After we prepare and sell your vehicle, we report the exact sale price – both to you and to the charity, so the transaction is totally transparent. You both receive IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days of the sale, so you get the tax deduction for the total.
Do you want to know more about your tax deduction or the money going to your favorite non-profit? We have several videos to answer your questions.
It’s amazing to live so near God’s country, like Yosemite. Ahhhh ... and the memories in your Phoenix Pop-up or your huge Pace Arrow. It’s hard to close the door on those days, but if your kids are grown, or if you’ve invested in a little cabin instead, there’s no use cluttering your property. You can donate an RV in Fresno through Cars2Charities, just like a car.
What about your memories boating on the Merced River? If your Bayliner has been at Pacific Marine Center way too often lately, it may be time for a boat donation in Fresno. Do you have jet skis or a Sea-Doo you never use? You can donate a vehicle in Fresno of just about any kind.

Did you know your golf cart can put money in the pocket of your favorite cause? If you live in Copper River Ranch and spend afternoons on the links, you may have a cart you either want to replace or just never use.

If you’re a transplant from the Bay Area, you’ve probably considered making your carbon footprint a bit smaller. There are a lot of charging stations now, like one at Fiat of Fresno and at the Doubletree by the Convention Center.
Being right in the middle of California, you need your wheels to get to the beach (150 miles), to get to San Francisco (180 miles) and the Central Coast wineries (200 miles).

When you do, let the car you no longer need be a benefit to others, while offering you the tax break you need. Call us to donate a car in Fresno through Cars2Charities, and we’ll take care of the whole process for you.
