Car Donation to Support The Enlisted Project

They put their lives on the line for us. They are modern day heroes. And they deserve financial security! They are our military men and women.

Support The Enlisted Project, or STEP, is a non-profit organization offering services to eligible military and the families of veterans who are struggling financially or just need a leg up. When you donate a car to Support The Enlisted Project, it offers them resources to get to a more secure place financially.Step 1

Why donate your car to Support The Enlisted Project?

Are you a military family? Or did your friend sign up for military service but their children just don’t have the living situation they deserve?

Making ends meet is a major challenge, no matter what your occupation, but no one deserves assistance more than the men and women serving our country. Our California Dept. of Veterans Affairs can play a big part in offering resources for those who need it. And you can too! 

When you make a vehicle donation to Support The Enlisted Project, the value of your car goes to fill those financial gaps that military families are suffering.Step 2

Are you growing tired of dropping your car at your dealer’s service department, or spending free time picking up a rental car? You don’t want to have a breakdown on the freeway when bringing your kids to the tutor or driving to work.

Are your kids grown and reminding you to replace the gas guzzler? If you’re planning to invest in a Chevy Volt or a Nissan Leaf, remember to make a car charity donation to Support The Enlisted Project and benefit members of the military.

Do you come from a long line of men and women in the military? Or maybe you bleed red, white and blue and just love showing support for their service. You can double down on that loyalty with a car, truck or SUV donation to Support The Enlisted Project.

When you’ve got a vehicle you’re replacing, it’s a chance to be that donor.

How do I donate my car to Support The Enlisted Project?

If you’ve ever been to Los Alamitos Air Station or Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base, you’ve seen organization in practice. That’s the same as the simple, fast car or truck donation to Support The Enlisted Project through Cars2Charities. 

Just call us at 855-520-2100 or donate your vehicle online!Step 3

If you’re thinking, “I’ll just head to the dealer,” think again! It’s not your best bet.

Sure, just trading in your car is easy. But you probably already know that you’re only reaping 30-40% of its actual value. A study at USC’s Marshall School of Business found that dealers merely hike up the price of the new car to make up for the trade-in. The data showed that buyers who traded in a car paid $990 more, on average, than those who didn’t! 

Here’s the good news: A charity car donation to Support The Enlisted Project through us at Cars2Charities enables you to benefit from 100% of the selling price! Your tax write-off is based on the sale price of your car. And because of that, our clients are really, really happy with our process.

How do I get a car donation tax deduction?

If you have a good relationship with your CPA, you probably get ribbed about coming up with more tax write-offs. Here’s your chance to put a smile on his/her face! Or do you do Turbo Tax instead? They can walk you through your papers, but guess what?! We take care of all the paperwork for you! We don’t do your taxes, but we even deal with the title transfer with the DMV.

Here’s the great part about our process at Cars2Charities: After we tow away your donation car, we bring it in to our expert technicians to assess it for necessary alterations. That’s the way we maximize your vehicle’s value. Our research has shown it typically brings in 25-50% more money—which benefit STEP and it’s a boost to your bottom line!

Think green: more money because of your tax break plus a good time to choose a more economical and environmentally friendly vehicle. When you reduce your carbon footprint by moving to a hybrid or electric car, you can “recycle” it by donating a car to Support The Enlisted Project.Step 4

Rest assured we follow everything required by the IRS, reporting the final price to you and to STEP. You both receive IRS Form 1098-C within 30 days of the sale, so you get the total for your tax records.

A report by the United States General Accounting Office to the U.S. Senate’s Committee on Finance says that approximately 733,000 tax returns claim tax donations for donated vehicles every year, totaling about $654 million in write-offs. You’re in good company! 


Can I donate an RV or make a motorcycle donation to Support The Enlisted Project?

Of course you can!

Do you have a camper you’ve spent a lot of time in, maybe making memories with the family? Do you find your kids have basically grown out of spending time with the family outdoors? You can donate an RV to Support The Enlisted Project!

Has it been forever since you hit the highway on your hog? Are you shopping for a new Yamaha YZF? If it’s time for a change, donate a motorcycle to Support The Enlisted Project!

Why pay for a storage unit? Do you collect sports cars, or have quads and other toys taking up space? Make a recreational vehicle donation to Support The Enlisted Project and do yourself a favor.

Is your boat in a slip on the Westside? If you have to “commute” to get to the marina to hit the water, it may be time to donate a boat to Support The Enlisted Project. Sometimes you just have to let go. Step 5

But if golf carts are more your speed, let us know when you’re thinking of moving up to a bigger, better Club Car. We can handle your golf cart donation to Support The Enlisted Project. Your method of recreation can make a difference in the lifestyle of a veteran and his or her family. 

Your ATV, Sea-Doo, jet skis – whatever you’ve got – can add comfort to the lives of spouses and children of our men and women in uniform. More resources provide financial freedom, all thanks to your car donation to Support The Enlisted Project through Cars2Charities. Let our decades of experience go to work for you and bring joy to others.
