Why donate your car to Cal State Fullerton?

car donation csuf charityAre you a strong supporter of post-secondary education? Do you like the idea of helping students at California State University, Fullerton get ahead?

If you were one of the mighty Titans, or you’re a proud supporter of the renowned Orange County university, you can always appreciate easy opportunities to throw a lifeline to the college students there. After All, Cal-State Fullerton is educating almost 40,000 men and women every year!

Are you tired of the old school ways of making donations? What if we told you that you can give CSUF grant money without ever reaching into your wallet?

It’s simple: When it’s time to upgrade what you’re driving, you can donate a car to Cal State Fullerton Foundation, and the benefit reverberates in several directions. Countless students gain scholarship money and other resources, plus an individual needing new wheels gets the use of your car. But it doesn’t end there! You get a piece of the pie too: a tax write-off!

Why should I donate my car to Cal State Fullerton instead of selling it?

car donation csuf free

There’s a new school of thought when finding a new home for the car you don’t need. In the old days, you did a dealer trade-in, plain and simple. 

Not now! You’re only getting 30-40% that way!

Instead, by donating a car to Cal State Fullerton you can access 100% of its value. That’s right, check Charity Navigator’s website, where they explain the nature of donations and their value.

According to the popular consumer website Edmunds.com, you don’t want to hang onto a car that’s constantly in the shop – it’s just not smart. Says consumer advice editor Ronald Montoya, "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."

Is your car a mobile office? You really want to have the most updated navigation system and the best speakers for calls with clients.

Are you as green as you could be? There are so many electric and hybrid cars on the market. Or maybe it’s time you downsized the giant “mom car” you don’t need any more. With dealers offering 0% loans, now’s the time!

Were you thinking you’d just post your car and sell it on Craigslist instead of making an auto donation? Only if you’ve got the time and energy to clean your car, take photos, post it on multiple platforms and, finally, deal with finding buyers – even flaky no-shows!

Donating a vehicle is a whole lot easier! Take the tax break – let Cars2Charities take the headaches.

We told you how we make necessary changes to the vehicle, and we’ve seen that the value of a donation car usually goes up about 25-50% as a result of the alterations. The charity reimburses us for the towing and a standard service fee, and then they get a donation check.

If you use Turbo Tax they’ll guide you through the process when you file your return. 

Cal State Fullerton Foundation gets 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)
