In today’s time people are no longer limited to only one car, most of the times each household have two if not three different cars at a time. When one car breaks down, it is immediately replaced, other times is when a family is faced with the need to get larger and newer versions. At these situations old cars are usually left to rot inside the garage.
These folks may have heard about car donation but simply changes their minds about actually doing it because they don’t have time to do some paper works, or just do not know where to start, however if you think about it, making car donations is of your advantage.
Did you know that the more and more children are homeless, lacks in education, and are abused? These children are supposed to be in school, learning ABCs instead they are faced with unimaginable problem at such early age. Good thing is there are more non-profitable organizations that help these poor children survive these ordeals, the problem is as much as these organizations would be pleased to home as many poor children as they want and provide them with shelter, food, and proper education, they have very limited budget.
And that is how you could help. Children’s foundations are in need to sponsors to help them care for these less fortunate children. If you own something that is of no use to you then you shouldn’t think twice about donating it. Some people do not realize that one effort means a lot to these foundations. One single car donation can help many children. Always put in mind that helping means doing it first hand, do not expect others to help out let yourself be the leader of good will, and just let others follow your lead.
What you get out of being Charitable?
Another fact about car donation is that it actually helps you too. A car donation helps you claim a tax deduction for your donated car. You can have a rebate on your fiscal by merely opening your heart to these needy children. Of course the rebate depends on IRS and the market value of your car.
Emotionally, helping others also means helping yourself.

What happens to the money earned?
No here’s what happen to the money your car earned, of course some part f it goes to the person who sold it as commission but larger part of it are sent to the foundation of your choice. You will receive a receipt if the car’s worth is over $500, this receipt plays a big part on your tax deduction or rebate so make sure that you complete all forms such as IRS 8283, and name the car after the car charity foundation you wish to give it to.
Reaching out to people in need through simple donations of the things that you no longer have use for is not just heartwarming, but a heroic act indeed. If you think that you are only getting a tax deduction for yourself, then you should start giving today for you would surely feel that it is not the only thing that you gain.
