Cars2Charities is designed to provide donors with a simple, fast, and secure way to donate their vehicles to their favorite charity in New York.

Making it an ideal for both our donors and charities.
Although the monetary benefits of donating a vehicle are great, the best part of all is the feeling of satisfaction you get when you designate the funds from your donation to go to your favorite charity. Imagine being able to benefit your local battered spouse's shelter, your preferred children's educational group, or the fight against a disease that has affected your family. You and your loved ones will enjoy knowing that your old “clunker" has been recycled and repurposed to the benefit of so many people and for a worthy cause.
The simple reason people choose to donate their car is because they no longer want it. Other reasons that people chose to donate their vehicle instead of trying to sell are:
-It’s a huge hassle to sell it yourself
- You want to benefit yourself AND your community
-The trade-in offer you got from CarMax, or a dealer is laughably low.
- It would take A LOT of time and money to fix up the car yourself
-You need your vehicle off your property.
-You want to support a cause that is important to you, get rid of your vehicle in the process, AND receive a tax deduction for your donation.
