We are extremely excited for today’s Super Bowl game between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. To add to the excitement of today’s game we decided to give you some SUPER TIPS on car donation.
1. Always check which charities are going to benefit from your car donation. We recommend doing your homework and checking sites like charity navigator and give.org to make sure that the charity is in good standing.
2. If a third party is involved always ask how much of the money from the sale of your vehicle will go back to the charity. Car Donation Wizard acts as agent for our charity partners and gives back over 82% of the gross proceeds to them. If an organization tells your x% of net proceeds goes back to the charity do not be afraid to ask how much of the gross proceeds goes back.
3. Check to see if the vehicle will be picked up for free. Car Donation Wizard picks your vehicle up within 24-48 hours of the donation being made and all for free! We want to make the donation process as easy as possible and will work with you to arrange a convenient time to pick up your vehicle.
4. Donating your vehicle to a charity entitles you to a tax deduction. Make sure to ask any organization what the timeline and procedure for receiving the tax deduction is. You can find out more here.
The most important thing about donating your vehicle to any charity is making sure that the majority of your contribution goes back to the charity. If you are ever unsure about the process or need a professional to speak to call us today on 877.957.2277
