What Charity Should You Choose When you Donate a Car in Oakland?

Choosing a charity is easy if you already have a passion or cause close to your heart. Animal lovers, for example, love to support the Animal Friends Rescue Project.

But maybe you'd like to donate your golf car in Oakland to brighten the lives of terminally sick children at the Ronald McDonald House. Or if you have a loved one suffering from a life-threatening illness such as Arthritis Foundation or Alzheimer's Association, choosing to donate a boat or motorcycle in Oakland to fund research for these illnesses may seem like a very small sacrifice — especially if you hardly use your recreational vehicles anymore.

 Still can't decide? No problem! We are happy to choose a great charity for your auto donation in Oakland. Just say “Cars2Charities, you choose for me," and we will direct your donation to whichever charity needs it most.

CarMax in Oakland just insulted you with a trade-in quote. Perhaps your car needs a little work and the trade-in value may not be worth much. We can help! (Did we mention fixing up cars for resale is what makes us truly unique?) Whether your vehicle needs to run better, look better or BOTH, our in-house car technicians can decide what approach is best to add value to your car for FREE. Let us give your car a new life and you might benefit more with a handsome tax deduction after the final sale, rather than trying to use your car “as-is" for a trade-in. 

“With over 35 years in the automotive industry, we have an invested passion for giving new life to cars. We create a win/win proposition for the charity and the car donor. "
