Did you know you could donate all types of vehicles, whether they run or not? Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ocean State can accept cars, trucks, SUVs, motor homes, boats, airplanes, etc. The Cars for Kids’ Sake program is a national program that helps local Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies raise funds to support their mission.
Thank you for considering donating a vehicle to support BBBSOS. The process for donating a vehicle is simple and hassle-free. Just call us toll-free at 800.710.9145. You will be asked to describe the condition of your unwanted vehicle (remember, it doesn’t need to run) and to provide the current mileage. You’ll also be asked to identify the make, model, and vehicle identification number (VIN). Then we’ll arrange a convenient time for pickup. It’s that easy.
Your donated vehicle will later be sold at a dealers-only auction or to a licensed recycler. With all costs deducted, we consistently receive between 65% and 80% of the gross sale price.
Donated vehicles qualify as charitable gifts and may be eligible for tax deduction. See IRS Publication 526 or visit http://www.irs.gov/publications/p526/ar01.html for information on claiming this and other charitable deductions on your annual tax return.
