Donating Your Vehicle to the California Wolf Center

wolf predator european wolf carnivores 162256When it comes to rescue groups, many of our resources go to dogs, cats and other favorite domesticated pets. But, luckily, there are also individuals who are devoted to defending the lives of other animals. One organization protects the welfare of the wolf population.

The California Wolf Center says that these wild canines have nearly become extinct. But, while humans may be responsible for their extinction, we can also be a part in recovering their numbers.

You can donate a car to the California Wolf Center and contribute to the conservation of the species through research, education and the implementation of proactive programs.

Is your car constantly in the shop? Are you ready to upgrade to a newer set of wheels, or go green by downsizing to something more fuel efficient?

Isn’t it amazing to know that while you get into something more comfortable, you can at the same time add to the comfort of these elegant animals?

Why Donate My car Instead of Selling It?

You may be used to just doing a trade-in, or maybe you sold your last car through CarMax. The problem is, did you know you’re losing money that way? You’re only getting about 35-40% of your car’s value when you go with one of those two methods!Once you decide it’s time to do some car shopping, what’s your plan for the vehicle you no longer need?

But you get to write off a full 100% of your car’s value through the car donation program to California Wolf Center. Like Charity Navigator’s website says, your charitable contribution to a qualified non-profit group offers you the benefit of the property’s fair market value.

According to the popular consumer website Edmunds.com, there comes a time when letting go of your car is a wiser financial move than hanging onto it. The company’s consumer advice editor Ronald Montoya says, "One quick way to come to a decision is with some simple math: If the cost of repairs is greater than either the value of the vehicle or one year's worth of monthly payments, it's time for another vehicle."

And not only that, you get something money can’t buy: a feeling of deep satisfaction, knowing you’re benefiting a regal species of canine that needs help.

Did you figure you’d post your car and sell it on Craigslist instead of making an auto donation? It’s a lot of work! You have to clean your car, take great photos, and then find some platforms for posting it. After all that, you have to deal with finding buyers – even flaky no-shows!

Donating a vehicle is a whole lot easier, plus there are benefits on so many levels. In addition to the tax break for you, the vehicle gets necessary improvements and someone needing wheels gets to drive yours. And don’t forget – wolves win too.

What Happens When I donate a Car to the California Wolf Center? nature animal wolf wilderness

First you make a 3-5 minute call to us, and in the next 24-48 hours we come to tow your car away for you. We come at whatever time and place is convenient for you. Then we take over the entire process, from assessing your car’s needs for alterations to finalizing the sale and completing the paperwork. Our research shows that donation cars typically sell for 25-50% more than they would without the improvements, which is a big boost for your favorite charity!

Like other car donations to California Wolf Center, your generous donation goes to fund endangered species recovery programs. They get a check from the sale, while you get a tax write-off. After the sale, we hand you, the IRS and your charity group the finished paperwork (IRS Form 1098) from your vehicle donation to California Wolf Center

Meanwhile, you can get out there and do some car shopping, because we take care of the title transfer, the DMV paperwork and everything else.

Your car donation tax deduction for California Wolf Center is a win-win.
