What Type of Vehicle Donations are Accepted?

We accept all types of vehicles donations!

You can donate a car, truck, boat, motorcycle, RVs, & more!

You may be thinking that your vehicle to donate is a little rough or perhaps is simply a “junk car,” but to these outstanding partner charities your generous junk car donation can be a life changing contribution.

To get started, simply review the partners recommended, and select the car donation charity who’s mission and program purpose best fits your criteria. Then fill out our fast and easy vehicle donation form or call to talk directly with one of our expert customer service team members.



By supporting only qualified nonprofit charitable organizations who will use the proceeds when you generously donate a car properly. You can rest assured the proceeds will go to making the biggest difference to those in need and you will get the maximum tax benefit when donating a car.

We have vetted our partners to make sure every dollar raised is actually going to its intended cause.

Unfortunately, in the car donation space, there are so many organizations that claim to donate to charity and don’t even contribute 50% of the net proceeds.

DonateACar carefully reviews each partner and their program to ensure your car donation is benefiting those in need. Visit our donation tips, FAQ, or Comparisons Charts for more information and resources.
