As Christmas approaches and the bustle of the holiday season carries on we want to encourage your charitable side with 12 reasons to donate a car for Christmas.  This year has been difficult for a lot of people.  Hurricanes and wildfires have caused mass destruction in regions of our country.  It’s been a trying year for many and helping to make sure everyone has the support they need is part of what makes the holiday season so great!

Donate a Car to Car Donation Wizard this Christmas

If you are unable to give money, donating a car to charity is a great way to give.  Here are 12 reasons why you should donate your car for Christmas.

  1. There are so many great causes that need your donation!  First and foremost the amount of work that a charity can do depends on how much cash they have.  For many non-profits the donations they receive near the end of the year make up a large portion of their revenue.
  2. Every car donation has a value, often times more than what you would expect!  Car Donation Wizard is the most successful vehicle donation processor in the country in returning the most money possible to the charity you choose.
  3. You are eligible for a tax deduction when you donate you car.  Donate by the end of the year to take your deduction on the next tax filing.
  4. The donation process is quick and easy!  After completing your donation over the phone (877-957-2277) or by filling out some information on the web your car will be assigned to a tower at no cost to yourself.
  5. Avoid selling your car yourself!  There is no need to deal with finding potential buyers or haggle over pricing.
  6. We accept every kind of car whether it is running or not as long as it has at least 3 wheels.  At Car Donation Wizard we have received cars from every decade all the way back to the 1930’s.  Most cars we see though are about 15 years old.
  7. In addition to cars, the following vehicles are also accepted for donation: trucks, motorcycles, boats, snowmobiles, trailers and recreational vehicles.
  8. If you can’t find your title or have a problem with the one you have, don’t worry!  Our titles department will sort out any issues and get you on your way to completing your car donation.
  9. To date we have raised over $140 million for non-profit organizations since starting 10 years ago.
  10. If you have an interesting story about your car or the reason that you chose the charity you did to donate to you can be featured on our blog.
  11. Between the charities we support you can help build affordable housing, save animals, cure diseases, protect children and much more.  This year we set a new record with over 1,500 different charities that accept car donations directly.
  12. You can impact the environment in a positive way!  Automobiles are the number one most recycled consumer product in the world and over 80% of every vehicle is able to be reused.

So if you have an old clunker in your driveway or if you would just like to do something good this time of year we would like to encourage you to donate a car to charity.  Also share with you friends and family how to donate a car too.  Whatever you do this holiday season is making the world a better place.
