Car donations can be a great way to help your favorite charity while benefiting you with a tax deduction. However, there are fraudulent organizations that are looking to capitalize on your generosity. Car Donation Wizard is here to provide you with information that will help protect yourself from car donation scams.

Before you decide on donating your car, follow these steps to avoid car donation scams and to ensure your donation will support your selected charity:

  1. Research the organization before you decide to donate. Be sure to look into the donation company that your selected charity works with. Don't fall for catchy jingles or billboards- how much money is actually being returned to the charity? Car Donation Wizard returns 80% of the gross proceeds from the sale of your vehicle to the charity of your choice, the highest of any car donation program! Use Charity Navigator to see exactly how your charity handles its donations.
  2. Does it sound too good to be true? Some organizations may promise gifts or vacations in exchange for your vehicle. It may sound good to be rewarded for your donation, but who pays for it? If it's getting taken out of your donation, the charity won't receive as much money as you think. Car Donation Wizard doesn't promise gifts in exchange for your donation but we do promise that your car donation will be helping your favorite charity. If you have any questions regarding how much you can claim for your donation, call us at 877-957-2277 or check out the IRS Guide to Vehicle Donation.
  3. Ensure the title is properly filled out. Car Donation Wizard is here to help you sign your title correctly and answer your title questions. Click here for state-specific title instructions or call us at 877-957-2277.
