How to Donate Your Car to the Arthritis Foundation

Step 1:  Provide Vehicle Information

Fill out the donation form online or by calling (800) 905-4931. We’ll ask for some information about your vehicle, including the VIN, year, make, model, mileage, and condition.

Step 2:  Schedule Free Car Pick Up

Tell us a little about yourself and where your vehicle will be picked up. A local towing agent will contact you within 2-3 business days to arrange a pick up time most convenient for you.

Step 3:  Get Tax Receipt

You’ll receive a confirmation email after you submit the donation form. This email will give you access to your Donor Console, where you can track the progress of your donation, upload documents, and receive tax and title information. Within 30 days of the sale of your vehicle, you’ll be emailed a tax receipt.

Frequently Asked Questions

What vehicles can I donate?

The Arthritis Foundation accepts almost all running and non-running car donations! We also accept trucks, motorcycles, RVs, snowmobiles, trailers, boats, and planes on a case-by-case basis. If you have questions about a vehicle you’d like to donate, give us a call at (800) 905-4931.

What paperwork is needed to donate my car?

You’ll need a clear, transferable title to the vehicle in order to complete your car donation. If you cannot find your title or have lost it, you’ll have to apply for a duplicate through your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles.

What should I expect on the day of pick up?

After you submit the donation form, a local towing agent will contact you within 2-3 business days to arrange a pick up time that works best for you. On the day of pick up, be sure to remove all personal items from the car and be prepared to hand over the car keys and signed title to the tow driver.

How much money will the Arthritis Foundation receive?

Car Donation Wizard proudly returns at least 80% of the gross proceeds from the sale of your vehicle to the Arthritis Foundation, the highest of any car donation program!

Is my car donation tax deductible?

Yes! Within 30 days of the sale of your car, you’ll be emailed a tax receipt. If your car sells for over $500, you may deduct the full selling price of the car when itemizing taxes. If your car sells for less than $500, you can deduct $499 or your car’s fair market value, whichever is less. Please consult with your tax advisor on the best way to claim your Arthritis Foundation car donation tax deduction.
