Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of donating my vehicle to Four Mile Historic Park?
Four Mile benefits by receiving a cash donation to fund new and existing programs and increase awareness through community events. 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.
What can I donate?
Many types of motor vehicles are accepted, 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 its condition. If you are uncertain as to whether or not your vehicle is eligible, please contact the vehicle donation program toll-free at 1-866-628-2277.
What do I need to donate my vehicle?
The only paperwork needed is a signed, clear title in your name. Have your title with you when you call in your donation. 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 vehicle?
A towing company will call you to schedule the pickup of your vehicle. You will need to give the driver the keys to the vehicle as well as your signed title. The driver will issue a tow receipt at the time of pick-up, indicating the year, make, model, and condition of what you are donating. (This will be your only receipt if your vehicle sells for less than $500.)
How is the value of my vehicle determined?
The value of your vehicle will be determined by the gross proceeds raised from its sale. You no longer have the burden of determining the value yourself.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes. 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.
