Share the Love – Beloved Subaru Donated to Public Radio KLCC

 

Schroeder 1“My 2004 Subaru Impreza was the best companion I’ve had in a vehicle. My faithful, internally combustive steed. It took me from the mountains of Wyoming to the farms of the Willamette Valley, and just about everywhere in between. I donated my car to KLCC because I believe publicly-funded media is essential to a functioning society, especially one that pegs itself as democratic and I remember fondly the hours upon hours I spent listening to NPR from inside my Little Silver Bullet. May she continue to keep on giving.” – Derek Schroeder

Car Donation to Indiana Public Radio Made Perfect Sense

June 22, 2015
Donor Letter: Peg Maginn, IN

“(My son) Richard got this 2001 Camry upon graduation from law school 2 years ago. Then he was involved in an accident. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but as he was driving home on the highway after the accident, his car hood flew off – literally!!!! Fortunately, it propelled off to the side of the road. The repair cost estimate was over $3700, which was more than the value of the car. Richard had the brilliant idea of using plastic and duck tape to cover the car in lieu of a hood. He drove it this way for approximately 4 months, intending to get a junk yard hood as a replacement eventually. (You can note from the picture, perhaps, that the engine had burned through the plastic and was now getting rusty from exposure!).

“Recently, he drove the car from his home in Louisville, KY, to visit in Fort Wayne, IN. While his car was parked in my driveway, I carelessly BACKED INTO IT, breaking the headlight, further denting the fender, etc. I call it serendipity, because I wasn’t thrilled he was driving a car in that condition! All ended well when Richard was able to find and purchase a good used (car) that afternoon.

“Our first thought was to part out the car. However, we remembered hearing on the radio (WBNI, our local NRP station) that NPR accepted donated cars. What better way to support media we both love? It was a “no-brainer”! So thank you for all the wonderful shows on both PBS and NPR. My Wednesday nights are reserved for “NOVA” and “Nature”, and we both watched the show about the end of the Vietnam War last night. My radio is tuned ONLY to NPR, and I listen to it nonstop when I’m in my car, or whenever I’m able to listen at home.”

Timmy…He’s More Than a Car Donation!

Brevig Timmy“I chose to donate my car because my husband I are moving to Idaho to further our education and start a family. We both upgraded to safer, family-friendly cars, but “Timmy” my first car will forever be my favorite! I bought him when I was 15, learned to drive with him, and moved across the country with him. I had to donate so someone else could love Timmy like I do!” – Samantha Brevig

Car Donation Wizard: Connecting Donors to Charities

June 25, 2015
Guest Blogger: Amanda Nevitt

At Car Donation Wizard we bring donors and charities together. Every year we receive thousands of car donations from individuals who want to help their favorite cause. We are experts at helping donors make a big impact by turning their donated cars into cash.

In addition to individual cars, trucks and motorcycles, we receive a fair share of “fleet” vehicles, which is a group of motor vehicles owned by a business rather than an individual. We’ve received shuttle vans for hotels, to big box trucks from corporations. They are an important part of our business and make a big difference for the benefiting charity.

Companies on average keep their fleet vehicles for about five years; most are at the end of their life and not worth much on trade in. What’s a sensible way to extend the life of those vehicles? Donate them! Not only does the donating company receive a tax deduction, but it’s a great way to help build houses, find cures for diseases, protect animals, empower veterans, keep children healthy & safe…(insert your favorite cause here).

Are you ready to donate? Let us help you get the most money for your charity of choice. Click here to get started.
