The final charity highlighted today is the Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation.  The VFW’s roots can be traced all the way back to 1899, when troops returned home from the Spanish-American War.  These soldiers banded together and formed groups that would later turn into the VFW. Since then, the VFW has been fostering camaraderie among veterans all across the United States.  They offer insurance programs, medical services and other benefits for its members. The VFW also has posts, which are places that members can go to be around others that have had similar life experiences.  The Veterans of Foreign Wars organization will continue bringing veterans together and provide top quality services for them. Donate a car through Advanced Remarketing Services and help support all the VFW does for veterans.

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!
