Car Donation to CHOC Children's Foundation

Children with serious illnesses get advanced treatment, comfort and advocacy when you donate a car to Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Your support of families who are suffering from the painful news that their child is fighting a life-threatening disease is a generous act that also benefits you with a tax write-off.

Why should I donate my car to CHOC Children’s Foundation?

There is little that touches a person’s heart more than illness in children. Every parent can sympathize with the incomparable grief and hardship a family endures when learning they may lose their little one to a fatal disease.

Children’s Hospital is a powerful institution with four centers: The CHOC Children’s Heart, Neuroscience, Orthopaedic and Hyundai Cancer Institutes. It is associated with the University of California, Irvine where they conduct research to find cures for pediatric patients.

When the time comes that your car is poised for replacement, you can be a hero with a vehicle donation to the CHOC Foundation through Cars2Charities.

Families at the hospital have received more than just medical treatment. They have been a part of the fight to end life-threatening pediatric illness since 1964. It’s amazing to think that an everyday item like a car can be a catalyst for comfort when you donate a car to CHOC Children’s Foundation.choc1

More than 2 million children from four counties have turned to CHOC for their healthcare needs. And the ability of families to pay is not a part of the equation. That is why it’s vital that resources such as proceeds from car donations to Children’s Hospital of Orange County stream in to support those efforts.

And because CHOC serves a disproportionate number of patients from low-income families, the hospital needs support to continue providing high-quality healthcare.

How do you donate your car to CHOC Children’s Foundation?

The more you know about CHOC’s service to others, the more you’d like to see if it’s easy to play a part in helping these children and their families. The good news? It’s very easy.

When you think of your options for replacing your car, making a car charity donation to CHOC Children’s Foundation is one of the simplest.

Just pick up your phone and call Cars2Charities at 855-520-2100 or donate online and it gets the ball rolling. One of our friendly associates will schedule a pickup of your donation car – at a time that’s convenient for you.

And even the location is flexible. You don’t have to drop off the donation vehicle somewhere that’s good for us. Even if it’s at the auto mechanic’s shop, we can tow it from there.

Have you been increasingly worried about a breakdown on the 405? Or is it just not the quality car you want to drive right now? Maybe you give rides to clients and need to maintain a certain image. Whatever the reason, you can decide to help babies and young children by choosing a vehicle donation to CHOC Children’s Foundation through Cars2Charities.

choc3Partnering with the caring professionals at this unparalleled medical center with a car donation to Children’s Hospital enables you to get the job done (find a new home for your car) and feel good about what you’re doing.

Can I donate an RV to Children’s Hospital of Orange County? A motorcycle or a golf cart?

No one wants to see a child in pain, and we can process nearly any vehicle so that you can play a part in their treatment.

An RV donation to the CHOC Children’s Foundation is similar to a car, truck or SUV donation to CHOC. You reach out to us and we pick up your Winnebago – or even your quad or jet skis.

Many vehicles can offer lifesaving support to boys and girls battling disease. If you’re an angler or love a day at Lake Powell, you can fight childhood illnesses with a boat donation to Children’s Hospital of Orange County.

If you like to motor on two wheels, you may be a member of a bike club. Inevitably you and your buddies get to a point when your Harley needs an upgrade. You can donate a motorcycle to the CHOC Children’s Foundation through Cars2Charities and we can turn your wheels into healthcare for kids. 

choc2If you donate a golf cart to CHOC Children’s Foundation – we make it so easy. A Children’s Hospital golf cart donation is another way you can become a part of progress. 

Can I get a car donation tax deduction with a charity car donation to CHOC Children’s Foundation?

You’re doing a beautiful thing when you donate a vehicle to CHOC. But what’s even better is that you get a benefit too.

Because CHOC Children’s Hospital is a nonprofit organization, when you donate a car to charity you get a nice tax break which is maximized through our process. At Cars2Charities we don’t just pick up your car and sell it. We tow away your car at no cost to you, and we bring it to our technicians for an assessment. When a donation vehicle needs some improvements, we make that a part of the process. Our research shows that vehicles with these kinds of changes tend to sell for 25-50% more than those without them. Because your tax break is based on the sale price of your donation car, it improves your financial situation.

And in more good news – we handle it for you. With 30 years in the car business, we know how to complete the donation process – crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s. You won’t need an appointment at the DMV – we’ve got this!

choc4After we sell your car, we send you the necessary paperwork required by IRS regulations. You and CHOC will receive IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days. We complete the title transfer and email you what you need with full transparency. 

Even individuals who have never experienced the heartbreak of visiting their newborn in the cardiac thoracic ICU or joining a child in the battle against an illness like leukemia can feel the joy of generosity. Your car donation to Children’s Hospital of Orange County will help move mountains for those families.
