Below are some select Frequently Asked Questions, for more FAQs, go to the Cars For Charity website.
What can I donate?
We gratefully accept almost all car donations. We also accept donated trucks, motorcycles, boats, snowmobiles, trailers and recreational vehicles. Boats and planes may require a call to see if they meet minimum criteria.
How long will it take you to pick up my vehicle donation?
All vehicle donations are processed as quickly as possible. Typically, we will pick up your vehicle within 2 or 3 days after the title is received by our processing center in Rhode Island. You can speed up the process by downloading documents online. Special arrangements can be made whenever car donations must be made quickly.
How much of the money generated by the sale of my vehicle goes back to the charity?
Donating a vehicle to charity can be a confusing decision. Many charity car donation programs promise to help the charities, but are run by third party processors that return very little to the non-profit. With most vehicle donation programs, the charity typically receives between 15 and 35% of the gross selling price to fund their charitable mission. The rest is consumed by third party 'fees'. Car Donation Wizard consistently delivers between 75 and 80% of the gross selling price for car donations back to the charity. We take our responsibility to bring the highest return back to the organization very seriously, and we are proud to run the most efficient vehicle donation program in the country.

What documents do I need to donate a car to charity?
Our Car Donation Wizard will tell you what is required in your state. Most states require that you have a clear title to the vehicle; some states also require a notarized signature to complete a donation. If you cannot locate or have lost the certificate of title, we can help you obtain the proper documentation.
