Vehicle Donation

Interested in donating your vehicle to an organization you believe in? It's easy to make a contribution that supports WQCS!

Here's how it works:

• Just call toll-free (888) 527-9727 to speak to a WQCS Vehicle Donation representative or send an online message now.  Our representative will schedule a pickup that's convenient for you and provide you with confirmation of your donation.

• If the gross proceeds from the sale of your donated vehicle are $500 or more and if you provide your social security number to our representative at the time of your donation, you will also receive an IRS tax form 1098C stating the sale price of the vehicle. This amount is what you actually claim on your itemized tax return.

 

 • According to the tax law effective January 1, 2005, if the claimed value of the donated vehicle exceeds $500, the taxpayer is limited to the gross proceeds of the sale.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

What are the benefits of donating my car to WQCS?

You benefit by being able to reduce your taxable income when taxes are itemized. Plus you avoid the costs associated with selling your car. No need to pay for advertising, no loss of privacy and possible security risk, and no need to pay for vehicle registration, insurance, and repairs to keep your car in running condition while you wait for a buyer.

WQCS benefits by receiving a cash donation to fund new and existing programs and increase community awareness through local events.

 

Does my car have to be running to donate it?

No, in some cases we can take your car, running or not. However, it must have an engine and be towable. Contact a representative at (888) 527-9727 to find out if your vehicle qualifies for pick-up.

 

Do you only accept cars for donation?
Many types of motor vehicles are accepted including boats, motorcycles, trucks, and cars, motor homes, airplanes, and even houses. If you are uncertain as to whether or not your vehicle is eligible, please contact the vehicle donation program toll free at (888) 527-9727.

How long will it take to pick up my vehicle?

We make donating your car as simple and convenient as possible. In some cases, if we receive your call early in the day, a same-day pick can be available. A tow company will contact you within two to three business days. Call our representatives at (888) 527-9727.

Do I have to be with the vehicle at the time of pick-up?

No, special arrangements can be made by calling our representatives.

What paperwork do I need?
The only paperwork needed is a signed, clear title. Have your title with you when you call in your donation. [Please note: a clear title indicates the title is in the name of the donor without a lien].

What if I receive legal notices?

In the rare event that you receive any notification of a lien sale, DMV action, or other activity related to your donated vehicle, please contact us at (888) 527-9727 immediately for assistance.
