CAR DONATION CHARITIES
Car Donation Charities are
thriving because of Americans' generosity. Car donations now
account for up to 20% of the junk cars that leave America's
roads every year.
Most charitable car
donations result in a $500 federal tax deduction for the
giver, which amounts to a few hundred dollars in tax
savings. The vast majority of charities contract with local
car removal businesses, and receive between $100 and $300
for each car their charitable marketing efforts produce.
If you're worried that your donated car is impacting the
environment, you should ask questions about what will happen
to your junk car. Given the fact that the traditional auto
salvage businesses are handling the back-end of many car
donation charities, there is reason to be concerned.
There are a small handful of car donation charities that do
more with the cars they receive. Local churches fix up
donated cars for families with transportation challenges.
The national Lung Association runs it own auto removal
operation, meaning that they're most likely to earn more
from your donation.
Do some online research on the Chicago and Illinois
charities that accept auto donations. Don't be afraid to ask
questions about how your car will help their charity and/or
impact the environment.
