Why Vehicle Donation Is Better than Selling for Scrap

Why Vehicle Donation Is Better than Selling for Scrap

When your old set of wheels is on its last legs, you may be tempted to call the scrap yard and get ready to taste disappointment when the tow guy hands you 200 dollars and calls it a day. But what if I told you there's an option where you can feel good even when the tow guy shows up? Consider vehicle donation.

Believe it or not, many charities accept old cars and boats as donations to their mission.  In some cases, the charity can use the old car or boat directly within the charity for transport or activity.  In other cases, the charity will auction the vehicle or scrap it themselves to incur funds for their mission.  Unlike household and clothing donations, cars and boats give local charities a great way to earn money for their services and programs.

The best part?  You can even use the receipt you get from your donation as a deduction on your federal incomes taxes.  Just make sure you remember it when it comes time to sit down with your accountant or tax service.

Rawhide for Boat and Vehicle Donation

Looking for somewhere to complete your car donation?  Consider donating to Rawhide.
Rawhide is a faith-based charity that works with at-risk children and their families to form positive coping methods.  Through a combination of counselors, therapists, and volunteers, Rawhide corrects at-risk youths with educational programs that form positive coping methods as well as teach families how to communicate with their children. Over the course of 40+ years, Rawhide has helped to redirect the lives of thousands of children.

All you have to do to begin your donation with Rawhide is visit their website or pick up the phone.  You'll be asked a few questions about the car or boat you want to donate, as well as your location.  After the representative has determined what kind of tow-truck is needed for the job, he or she will arrange a free pick-up.  While you wait for pick-up, make sure that you've removed all your personal objects and checked the CD Player for your old mixes.
