You could receive a higher value for you vehicle as a charitable contribution on your next tax return than you would by selling it.

In addition to the weight donating your car takes off of you, it also takes a huge weight off of those in need. Your contribution provides invaluable support for our clients as they rebuild their lives. The proceeds from the auction of your vehicle go straight to providing assistance to our clients, from homeless outreach and emergency housing to youth programs and job training.

What your car donation means

Think about this number: 62,000. That’s how many veterans go homeless on any given night and twice as many experience homelessness throughout the year. When you donate your automobile to Volunteers of America, you are delivering hope to those who need it most right in your community. The money from your donation goes directly to affect positive change through all of our remarkable programs and services, like homeless outreach and housing assistance. We support not just veterans, but homeless individuals and families as well. Here in Cincinnati, we work every day to serve nearly 700 neighbors in need each year. We do this by rebuilding lives and strengthening communities. Your gift will help put a roof over our clients' heads and find stable jobs. You can make a true, tangible difference in the life of someone who has no one else to turn to.
