VEHICLE DONATION

Donate your car to help homeless animals and receive a charity tax deduction in the process. You’ll be getting rid of a vehicle taking up space in your garage or driveway and avoiding costly repairs and the headache and hassle of selling a vehicle. It’s an all-around winning scenario.

In addition to your car, here is a list of other vehicles that you may also donate. Note, a vehicle must have been purchased for personal use, as opposed to a vehicle held for resale to customers.

Truck

Boat

Motorcycle

How a vehicle donation benefits the animals

By making a vehicle donation, you will be supporting pets in need. The money from the sale of your vehicle will go towards funding the animal rescue work, vet care, training, any other expenses for the animals.

Car donation tax deduction

After you donate your car to us, you will receive a car donation tax write-off for your charitable contribution to Guardians for the Animals of Ohio, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)(3) animal organization.

How to donate vehicle

Guardians for the Animals of Ohio, Inc. collaborates with our trusted vehicle donation partner, CARS™, to make the process of donating your car quick, simple and painless.

By clicking the above link you will be taken to a page that details the simple process for donating a vehicle. First, you will fill out online form or call CARS at (855) 500-RIDE or (855) 500-7433 . CARS will arrange for free pickup of vehicle within 24-48 hours of your car, boat or other vehicle. There is no cost to you. Your vehicle can be picked up from your home, office or even a repair shop.

Charitable contribution receipt

In exchange for your vehicle and signed title, the tow company will give you a pick-up receipt for your records. After your vehicle is sold, CARS will provide you with a tax receipt. If your car is sold for more than $500, in addition to the tax receipt, CARS will supply you with an IRS 1098-C form.

Charity tax deductions

Guardians encourages you to speak with your tax advisor concerning your charitable vehicle donation. Your tax preparer can provide you with detailed advice and instructions about itemizing your deductions on your 2017 taxes to receive a tax break for your gift to the animals. A professional can also advise you about particular IRS forms that you may need to fill out and submit with your taxes.

Note: If you are interested in donating a vehicle, please review the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidelines for tax deduction allowances. Guardians for the Animals of Ohio partners with a wholesaler to sell donated vehicles, so the amount of your donation may not be the same as the private party sale value of your vehicle.
