Car Donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central California

If your childhood was filled with friends and sports and family, stories of abuse and neglect can seem unimaginable. But kids like “Trevor,” whose parents are in prison, and “Selina,” who has lost family members to addiction, have experienced more disappointment and despair than they should ever have to. They need love; they need resources; and they need a friend.

Those who are called to be a Big Brother or a Big Sister reach out to give them hope. That’s what you offer when you donate a car to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central California.

How can I donate my car to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central California?

Were you car shopping recently and thinking that you might do a dealer trade-in? We’ve got a better idea!
Studies show that dealers raise the price of your new car to make up the difference. As it is, they keep about 60-70% of the value. But with your auto donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central California, you get to write off 100% of the vehicle’s value!

And remember, with a car charity donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central California through Cars2Charities, there’s no headache for you, managing a Craigslist post or an Ebay sale.

If you’re on the fence, not sure if you need a new car, it’s nice to know there’s an added incentive. Are you ready to downsize? We may not be the big city, but even here in the Central Valley we’ve got our eye on our carbon footprint. Just look up EV Charging Stations – they have them in Bakersfield, Visalia, Clovis, Merced – everywhere!

Are you a sportscar lover, maybe a customer at Porsche Fresno? Or if you want something a little more economical, there’s Own a Car Fresno. Either way, there’s great financing out there, plus there comes a time when auto repairs start to cost more than a car payment!

What’s the tax benefit if I make a car or truck donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central California?

Because BBBS is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, your auto donation is tax deductible. And not only that – our process at Cars2Charities maximizes that deduction. After our tow personnel pick up your car, we take it directly to our technicians, who make appropriate changes to your vehicle, in the form of upgrades and repairs. Our research shows that the sale price is typically about 25-50% higher than the vehicle’s value without the changes!

How are you with paperwork? Guess what – it doesn’t matter! Remember, we handle all the forms, and everything is transparent. We are confident about what we do, and you can be too.

After selling your donation car, we report the sale price of the vehicle to you and to BBBS. Following the IRS guidelines, we submit the paperwork to you. You both receive IRS Form 1098 within 30 days of the sale.
