Wondering what to do with your used car or truck?

Wondering what to do with your used car or truck? 

Donating your old vehicle to Feed Our Vets, is convenient, easy, and may qualify you for a tax deduction. And best of all, your donation of a used car or truck will make a big difference in feeding hungry Veteran families.

 

Why not donate your vehicle today?  All you need to do is to complete the simple online form at Vehicles for Charity or call 1-866-628-2277 and they’ll take care of the rest.

 

They will pick up your vehicle, arrange to have your donation towed, and provide you with a tax-deductible receipt, all at no charge to you.

 

Call 1-866-628-2277 or visit the Feed Our Vets page at Vehicles for Charity today.

 

Frequently Asked Questions: 

What can I donate?
You can donate most any vehicle, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. They do not have to be currently running. Your vehicle donation will be sold at an auction or to salvage depending on condition.

 

Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes, Feed Our Vets is a non-profit organization and all donations qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return.

 

What do I need to donate my car?
The title to the car must be in your name. We will also need some information about where the car is located and the condition of the car. This will assist us in scheduling appropriate towing arrangements.

 

Will you pick up my car?
A towing company will call you to schedule the pick-up of your vehicle. You will need to give the driver the keys to the vehicle as well as your signed title.

 

How is the value of my car determined?
The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to include the IRS form 1098C. Vehicles for Charity will supply this documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.

 

Feed Our Vets has partnered with Vehicles For Charity to process donated vehicles. Just call 1 866 628 2277 they will answer any other questions you may have and make arrangements to pick up your donation.

Time Is Running Out to Make A Tax Deductible Donation to Feed Hungry Veterans

Time is running out to make a tax deductible donation to 
Feed Our Vets for 2017

This year, we’ve been able to to distribute nearly 275,000 lbs. of nutritious food to hungry Veteran families.
You can help us continue to feed hungry veterans and their families by making your contribution today, and receive a tax deduction for this year.

Fortune Magazine is advising donors to also make their 2018 charitable donations this year, due to the new tax code:

 

If you’re one of the many filers who will benefit by taking the GOP tax bill’s increased standard deductions – and you previously deducted charitable contributions under the old tax plan – consider making your 2018 charitable donations before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve. By using the new, bigger standard deductions, you’re agreeing not to itemize your returns, which means it’s not financially beneficial for you to give to charities in 2018. This is a point of contention for nonprofits and opponents of the bill. But there is one way to make sure both you and charities benefit (at least at the moment), and that’s by putting your 2018 contribution on your 2017 taxes instead.


Thank you for your support!

Happy New Year!

Sincerely,

Rich Synek
Executive Director & Founder
