Spreading a message of zero tolerance for domestic violence brings us closer to a world where men, women and children are safer in their homes and in the wider community. It’s an ideal that is making progress, thanks to the work of STAND! For Families Free of Violence, a nonprofit program providing intervention, treatment and prevention of abuse.
A car donation to STAND! For Families Free of Violence is a simple way to support their important work to end the cycle of violence in homes among families of all ethnic and economic groups. The organization seeks to intervene as early as possible in the lives of individuals plagued by unstable environments. Clients come from experiences ranging from children needing shelter from the abuse of foster parents to adults who lack the finances or the emotional strength to detach from abusers.
Following values such as integrity, compassion and accountability, STAND! educates youth leaders, operates an emergency shelter and takes calls 24-hours-a-day on a community hotline. Staff members lead discussion groups, educating young men and women about healthy relationships, and offering workshops to mothers and fathers to increase their parenting skills.
In one year, STAND! gave support services to 230 caregivers who are providing safe homes for child-relatives coming from violent homes. There were more than 2,300 support group sessions to help those healing from trauma and 1,600 adults and youth attended presentations about violence prevention.
You can help them keep the needs of these families on their radar with a vehicle donation to STAND! For Families Free of Violence.
It’s an easy way to accomplish a lot in the fight to end domestic strife. You can call us to come and pick up the car you no longer need and a STAND! For Families Free of Violence vehicle donation is in motion. We take it from there.
We take all the responsibility of the car’s sale, so you can return to your work, do some volunteering, or shop for your next car. When you call, we come and tow your auto donation within 24-48 hours at the time and place that is most convenient for you. Your generosity gets realized very quickly, as we get to work to determine if we should make any repairs or upgrades to your car before it goes to sale. That way, we can maximize the dollar amount received by your Stand! For Families Free of Violence charity car donation.
Abuse is defined as a repetitive pattern of behaviors used to maintain power and control over an intimate partner. There are so many ways an individual can be victimized, including physical violence, sexual assault, and there are emotional and verbal abuses too. Stand! For Families Free of Violence aims to combat abuse on all fronts, which makes your auto donation so much more powerful. You can be confident that our process makes life easier for you, and at the same time brings relief and healing to someone needing help.
If you’ve experienced domestic violence firsthand, or if you’ve seen children victimized by an unstable home life, you can see what an opportunity it is to share the value of the car you no longer need with an organization doing this work.

We pick up almost any vehicle you no longer need – at a time and place that is most convenient for you. You can donate an RV to Stand! For Families Free of Violence and other items you may have in the garage or a storage shed.
Do you have watercraft? We take Jet Skis or Sea-Doos, or you can donate a boat to Stand! For Families Free of Violence. If you have quads/ATVS or other “toys” that you haven’t had time to use, we can pick them up and make sure their value goes to support violence survivors.
What a privilege it would be to allow your RV – one that holds so many happy memories for you – to become a resource for a young woman who has very few good childhood memories. Or to know that your generosity enables a little boy to never have to worry about his father hurting his mother again.
Last year, 10,000 women, men and children received services to help them find healing, end destructive behavior and build safe and strong relationships. It’s nice to know that a Stand! For Families Free of Violence golf cart donation, or a motorcycle or other motorized vehicle you don’t need can perpetuate those services.
Yes, you do.
When you donate your car to Stand! For Families Free of Violence, you already get the good feeling that comes with knowing you’re changing someone’s life for the better. It’s frosting on the cake to also realize you’re taking care of a much-needed tax write-off. After we sell your car – maximizing the tax advantage with both the changes made to the car and the fact we sell them privately – Stand! receives a check and you receive the paperwork for your accountant. Following the guidelines prescribed by the IRS, we submit the paperwork to you and to the charity you choose. You both receive IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days of the sale.
When tax time comes, you’ll already have everything in place, while funding such valuable resources as the Rollie Mullen Center, which is a safe haven for women and children. Besides financing the emergency shelter and transitional housing, by donating a car to Stand! For Families Free of Violence, you make it possible for more victims to gain freedom from abusers and move to the security and independence provided by a number of their programs.
Stand! For Families Free of Violence began almost 40 years ago with one phone line in a closet and has grown to become a leader in the fight against domestic violence in the Bay Area. Staff and volunteers serve communities of various cultures and languages as effectively and comprehensively as possible. Your gift enables them to expand those efforts.
When you’re in the process of finding a new home for a vehicle you no longer use, we are happy to help you make a Stand! Families Free of Violence car donation a reality.
