Donate for #GivingTuesday!

Today marks #GivingTuesday 2018, a day of giving and collaboration powered by social media. It is estimated last year $274 million dollars was raised online in response to the sixth annual #GivingTuesday.

#GivingTuesday also kicks off the spirit of giving season. Are you thinking of doing something different than a monetary donation to charity this season? Celebrate #GivingTuesday by donating your car to charity and we will return 80% of every gross dollar raised back to our charity partners. We work with some of the nation’s best charities, visit Car Donation Wizard to make your charity choice. #GivingTuesday is a great day to remind us as Americans the importance of giving to those in need and the thousands of non-profit organizations around the world that spend 365 days a year working to make a difference. Your car donation can help build a new home for a family, help find a cure for cancer, or be put to use with humanitarian efforts worldwide.  Donating your car to such causes is a great way to give something back. Not to mention the environmental impact donating your old vehicle has on our planet!

2018 will present new opportunities and challenges with the tax reform, but based on more people and organizations aware of the success of #GivingTuesday since its start in 2012, it is likely we will see more dollars raised than last year. And, contrary to some predictions, people are in fact still donating, and not just for the tax deduction. ARS President, Joe Hearn’s Wreckonomics Special Charity Spotlight, looks specifically at car donation trends and why they are here to stay. Our largest charity programs continue to grow in 2018 and we predict that growth to continue. Ready to be a part of the #GivingTuesday movement today? Simply start your car donation online at www.cardonationwizard.com or call one of our vehicle donation experts at  (877) 957-2277!

1984 Toyota Land Cruiser to Habitat for Humanity

Did you know that cars can help build homes? Habitat for Humanity’s Cars for Homes program receives the funds from vehicle donations and uses them to improve communities. This vintage 1984 Toyota is a very special and unique donation, but every Habitat for Humanity car donation helps.

1984 Toyota Land Cruiser

The Land Cruiser is Toyota’s longest running series. They produced the first model in 1951! This is truly a durable model. How do we know? It is exclusively tested in the Australian outback, which is one of the most hostile environments on the planet.

Many Americans know this car as the most reliable car in the country, outback or not.

This particular model is “comfort-oriented” vs. “off-road oriented,” which is clear from the incredible upholstery! Most people race to call shotgun in a car, but I’d be more than happy to relax in this plus backseat.

Habitat for Humanity Car donation

This is a vehicle that could really take you places, or in this case, really help build places!

The generous owner of the vehicle decided to benefit their local Habitat for Humanity. To follow in their footsteps, or tire tracks with a charity car donation, keep reading!

Habitat for Humanity Car Donation

Habitat for Humanity has a simple vision: a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

They help build new homes and empower future homeowners. Their projects depend on the sweat equity of homebuyers and volunteers. Habitat operates domestically, as well as in Latin and Central America, Asia, Africa, and Europe. Also, they operate globally, to help communities recover from disasters.

A Habitat for Humanity car donation will benefit the closest Habitat for Humanity in your area, which means the proceeds stay in your local community and help your neighbors. A donation to Habitat does more than help an individual or a family — it helps a community.

If you can’t donate sweat equity, or building materials to your local restore, you can always donate your car. Donating your car through Cars for Homes is a great and easy way to benefit your local affiliate.

Car Donation Wizard returns between 75-80% of the gross proceeds to Habitat, which is an effective way to support your favorite charity. You are even eligible for a tax deduction!

Even if you don’t have a Toyota Land Cruiser, you can still help Habitat with your charity car donation. Visit our website or give us a call at 877-277-4344 to get started!

1986 Pontiac Firebird Donated to ASPCA

ASPCA vehicle donation

1986 Pontiac Firebird

We handle thousands of vehicle donations to charity every year, but this particular car truly stands out. This sweet cruiser fits the definition of a “pony car,” named after Mustang. Pony cars are smaller size muscle cars that still pack quite the punch.

This car has a 250 horsepower rating. Keep that in mind for trivia night, 1 Firebird = 250 horses! This iconic sportscar really purrs, or maybe chirps, on the highway and even on the silver screen.

The Pontiac Firebird gained fame as David Hasselhoff’s car in the TV series Knight Rider, and this specific car was made the final year of that program. Hasselhoff’s high tech Firebird fought for justice, which isn’t too different from our donor helping ASPCA!

ASPCA

Donate a Car to ASPCA

This car was donated to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA). ASPCA, founded in 1866, was the first humane society in North America.

They have three main focuses: Animal Rescue, Animal Placement, and Animal Protection. That means that ASPCA works hard to rescue animals from abuse, place them in loving homes, and advocate for humane laws.

If you donate your car to ASPCA, you can help them continue their incredible legacy of over 47,000 animals rescued or assisted.

If you’re wondering how to donate my car, visit our website or give us a call us at 855-652-7722. It’s easier than you’d expect to donate your car — and you’ll be eligible for a tax deduction!

All you need to do is reach out to one of our friendly representatives or check us out online, and you can have your car picked up quickly, and for a great cause! Car Donation Wizard returns between 75-80% of the gross selling price of every vehicle to ASPCA. It doesn’t get much better than that! Don’t worry though, we won’t let unlicensed dogs behind the wheel!

1972 Buick Donated to Habitat for Humanity

Buckle in for a drive down memory lane! Today’s Vehicle Spotlight highlights an amazing 1972 Buick donated to an even cooler charity: Habitat for Humanity!

The Car: 1972 Buick LeSabre Convertable

car donation to habitat for humanity

This shiny red convertible is part of a family that first hit the road in 1959. Buick is a famously reliable make of cars, and this particular cherry is a lot flashier than the average model.

Not only is this car a dazzling shade of red, it is spacious for a convertible! This model has a full-sized back seat, so up to five people can ride together in style. The back seat sure looks cozy…

car donation to habitat for humanity

The first Buick Lesabre revved its engine in 1959, and the last was manufactured in 2005. This particular Lesabre featured a cutting-edge seatbelt reminder! There is something timeless about the boxy frame, which was once the best selling car in America.

This particular model served its driver well for decades before starting a new life as a vehicle donation to charity.
