Donating to charity can sometimes feel like a daunting experience. According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics (NCCS), more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations are registered in the U.S. This number includes public charities, private foundations, and other types of nonprofit organizations, including chambers of commerce, fraternal organizations and civic leagues. With everyone looking for contributions and help it is difficult to know who you should donate to and in what form.
Car Donation Wizard Checklist for Donating:

Donating a car can seem like a daunting task but here at Car Donation Wizard we provide all of the necessary information that our donors need to know before they make that big decision.
Firstly, knowledge is key. There are a lot of car donation programs out there that claim to give high returns to their charity partners, when in reality the charities are lucky to receive 10%-30% of gross proceeds.
Tip #1 : Ask how much of the proceeds from the sale of your vehicle go back to the charity and it’s missions/cause. Look out for charities or organizations that are partnered with charities that only tell you the net return- this should be red flag number one.
