Car Donation to Peninsula Education Foundation

Palos Verdes families know they have an ace in the hole, when it comes to their neighborhood schools. They’ve got a group of volunteers who tirelessly raise money to maintain, provide and enhance vital education programs in the PVPUSD, making up for shortfalls year after year.

The money this non-profit raises saves teachers’ jobs and makes sure kids have music programs, P.E. and helps them reach the highest levels of academic competition.

That’s the amazing work at the Peninsula Education Foundation. And you can bring in that double eagle by joining forces with them through a car donation to PEF.

Why donate your car to Peninsula Education Foundation?

Replacing your car is an everyday thing, but it can have extraordinary meaning when you donate a vehicle to Peninsula Education Foundation. At every level—elementary, middle school and high school—PEF is relied upon to continue granting the youth of our community tremendous opportunities.pef-car-donation-2

Early music education is linked to mathematical ability, and the kids on the Peninsula are not missing out! PEF is funding those programs, as well as placing the kids on successful trajectories through elementary STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education. Fourth graders begin learning engineering concepts through fun, hands-on projects, thanks to this amazing non-profit.

Have your environmentally conscious friends encouraged you to give up the gas guzzler and pick up a Prius at Toyota of Torrance? Or how about a new electric Fiat? Did you know there are 1,338 EV charging stations within 30 miles of Rancho PV?! Need more convincing? John Ydstie at NPR explains why a car donation is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.

Maybe your family’s growing and it’s time to upsize. Your MINI just doesn’t hold an infant car seat very well! Whatever your age and stage, you can make a difference for kids with a vehicle donation to Peninsula Education through Cars2Charities. Young families in PV and the surrounding area are counting on their kids getting a competitive education!

Are your kids grown and you have great memories from their days at Palos Verdes High School? Maybe they even earned a PEF scholarship! Wasn’t it nice to know there were Safe School Counselors bringing bully prevention and alcohol abuse education to your kids? Thank you, PEF!

A car or truck donation to Peninsula Education Foundation keeps this amazing organization’s effective programs up and running.

Do I earn a tax deduction when I donate my car to Peninsula Education Foundation?

Sharing the wealth is important to you. You feel good about making a difference for others, reaching beyond your own comfort level. But you also know it’s smart.

The last time you sat down with your CPA were you told you need more tax deductions? Here’s your chance! And what better cause?pef-car-donation-3

When you find yourself with a car you no longer need, you may typically plan to do a dealer trade-in. Well, your CPA may not be excited about that.

You’re probably aware that dealers only give you 30-40% of the value of your car. That goes for CarMax too. Those are easy routes, to be sure, but they don’t benefit a non-profit, plus the full sale price of your old car goes into your tax equation with a charity car donation to Peninsula Education Foundation.

And through Cars2Charities you get an added bonus—our process, which maximizes your contribution. Our technicians assess your car for necessary improvements which, our research shows, tends to raise the sale price of donation cars by 25-50%!

If you’re thinking more about whether or not an auto donation is a good fiscal move, you may want to check out an article on Edmunds.com where senior consumer advice columnist Ronald Montoya says there comes a time when letting go of your car is a wiser move than hanging onto it. He 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."

How do I make a vehicle donation to Peninsula Education Foundation?

It’s a simple 3-5 minute call to us at 855-520-2100 or—better yet—a few clicks on your computer!

We come and tow away your donation vehicle at a time and place that’s convenient for you—we pick up your car from virtually any location. Our flexible and knowledgeable staff members work with you to take over the process, so you don’t have to.
Like we mentioned, next our experts perform an inspection to determine whether your car would benefit from any alterations. We get it ready for sale, sell it and hand PEF a nice check, while you get the paperwork for your taxes. We even handle the title transfer!

Your car donation tax deduction for Peninsula Education Foundation is spelled out for you following IRS guidelines. We send both you and PEF the IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days of the sale, so you get the tax deduction for the total.
