Today I’d be showing you guys some tips on how to donate your car in Dallas Area. The most important thing is to choose your charity. Make sure that if you find their phone number in the phone book or on the Internet that you call them before you donate. Make sure that they do accept car donations, and then you can ask questions like what percent of the proceeds fund their their programs. Ask what their programs are.
You should never donate to a charity that spends less than seventy-five percent of all of their money on their programs. Overhead for a charity should never be more than twenty-five percent. Then ask that charity how to donate the car. They’ll either take the vehicle donation on the phone or on from their website, or they might have a donation processing center. But make sure to get the phone number and the website for that charity’s processing center from that charity.
If you are donating to the National Kidney Foundation, which is the country’s largest donation, car donation program, all you need to do is call 1 (800) 488 CARS or you can donate online at kidneycars.org. You need to make sure that you do have a title for a vehicle and if you don’t, you can either go to the DMV, or go online and apply for a duplicate title, usually for a few dollars, and within a week, any state can produce a duplicate title.
Once you do have the title, you need to sign your name on to release your ownership of the vehicle and make sure that the buyer section or the new owner section of the title has a name of the charity. They’ll take all the information, they’ll come out and get the car and you’ll get a receipt that you can use for your tax deduction.
