As the season of giving approaches, you may be thinking about how you can give to charities and your community. There are many opportunities, and you may be planning to drop some spare cash in some collection buckets or to participate in programs that collect toys for needy children. Other opportunities include volunteer work and donations to food banks.
One other local opportunity to give that is available year-round but can still be done during the holidays is car donation Madison. There are charities that get much of their funding from car donation, and that do good work for our communities all year. If you have a vehicle that you no longer need, consider Madison car donation to easily get rid of the vehicle while helping others. And it doesn’t just apply to cars, many car donation charities accept all different types of vehicles, including trucks, boats, RVs, motorcycles, jet skis, golf carts, and more. The vehicle does not even have to run, if you have ANY vehicle to get rid of, contact a Madison car donation charity to see if it can help them.
If the vehicle runs well, there is a chance that it will be used by the charity. More likely though, your car donation will help the charity after it is sold in a bidding environment and the money from the sale will be put towards the charity’s programs. If you give a vehicle that needs some work to a school or another program for youths, it may be used as a project. The students can learn while helping to fix the vehicle.
Charities really want your car donation, so they make the process very easy. You will need to fill out a form online or call the charity to provide basic information such as what type of vehicle your donation is, the VIN, and the mileage. They will often even arrange to have the vehicle towed from a location of your choosing at a time that is convenient for you. If you plan to claim the donation as a tax deduction, they can also provide a receipt as proof of the car donation.
