Gross versus net – important information to know before making a car donation

A charity has a responsibility to best manage your donation. Before making a donation of any kind, ask how much of the gross proceeds will go to the charity. If the organization will only list the percentage of net, then your donation could be largely wasted. Several published reports have clearly established that most car donation programs return between 15 and 35% of the gross back to the charity, but they report it as 50 to 70% of the net. This could mean the difference between the charity of your choice receiving $1,000 or receiving $150. CarDonationWizard will return between 75% and 80% of the gross back to the charity of your choice.
