Car Donation to Homeboy Industries

Residents of Los Angeles have so many challenges stemming from crime and poverty. A car donation to Homeboy Industries sends much-needed resources to a powerful inner-city nonprofit that gives hope and training to previously incarcerated former gang members. They get the chance to develop skills, gain work experience and redirect their lives.

Why should I donate my car to Homeboy Industries?

Boys and girls who grow up in neighborhoods filled with crime and gang activity have fewer options than residents of wealthy suburban communities. They struggle to find meaning and gain the experience they need to become independent and raise families of their own.

More than 10,000 former gang members from Southern California come through Homeboy Industries every year, including a solid workforce development opportunity. The organization operates a bakery, a solar panel company and a silkscreen/embroidery business. There is no larger tattoo removal operation than Homeboy in Southern California.Homeboy4

Father Gregory Boyle developed this circle of compassion more than 30 years ago where individuals are trained, supported and employed so they can become more personally and financially stable.

We all know what it’s like to endure general hassles at times when life isn’t going smoothly, such as struggling with unreliable transportation. While you have the luxury of seeking out your next car, it’s nice to know you can also make life better for someone who doesn’t have a lot of options.

If you’re missing work because you’re constantly dropping off or picking up your car from the mechanic, it may be a good time to replace your vehicle and take the opportunity to make a car or truck donation to Homeboy Industries.

There are also further benefits to making a car, truck or SUV donation to Homeboy Industries through us at Cars2Charities. We have a unique process that offers a boon to your tax situation.

Because the organization is a 501(c)(3) you’re able to write off the donation and it’s based on the sale price of your donation vehicle. Because our technicians assess donation cars that we process, there are times when we make changes to the vehicle, which results in a higher sale price. And that boosts your write-off.
