Used Car Donation : How to Donate a Car in Michigan


Hi, my name is Luz Luis, and I’m here to tell
you how to donate a car to charity in Michigan. The first and most important step is to decide
which charity you’re going to donate to. Make sure to call that charity on the phone, and
you want to ask questions like, “What is your charitable mission? What percentage of your
proceeds actually benefit your charitable mission?” You never want to donate to a charity
who has an administrative overhead of more than twenty five percent. So you need to make
sure that at least seventy five percent of all of their funding goes to fund their charitable
mission. Then ask if they take cars as charitable gifts, as charitable donations. Then, find
out from them if they have a different phone number or a website that you need to visit
in order to submit your car donation. The second most important thing is to find your
vehicle title. They’re going to ask you to sign the title over, to release your ownership
of the car, and make sure to put the name of that charity here in the buyer’s section
or the new owner’s section. You should never leave the buyer or the new owner section blank,
it should always have the name of the charity that you’re going to be donating to right
here. Then you go to the phone number or the website that the charity has instructed you
to submit your information to. They’re going to ask you questions like, “Whose name goes
on the tax receipt?” The year, make and model of the vehicle. And whether or not the car
runs. They’re going to ask you who to call to go and pick up the vehicle, and the vehicle’s
location. Once they have that information, then they’ll call you to come and get the
vehicle, and they’ll write you a receipt for your tax purposes. To donate to the National
Kidney Foundation, the country’s largest and most substantive car donation program in the
country, celebrating this years twenty fifth anniversary of the Kidney Kars Program, it’s
very simple. You can call 1-800-488-KARS, or donate on line at kidneycars.org. And then
just be sure to stay in contact with the charity that you’re donating to throughout the donation
process until you have your tax receipt.
