Helping U.S. Veterans Through Car Donations in Minnesota

Car donations can go a long way. With your old car, others can help support programs for American veterans. The proceeds of your donation go to programs like Honor Flight Twin Cities, MN Military Appreciation Fund, and The Veterans Airlift Command.

Honor Flight Twin Cities is a non-profit organization that sends World War II veterans to Washington D.C. to witness the memorial built for them. The Minnesota Military Appreciation Fund, on the other hand, is dedicated to providing cash grants to all soldiers deployed in combat zones like Iraq and Afghanistan and to the families of the soldiers who are killed in the war. The Veterans Airlift Command brings wounded veterans back to their families through providing private air charters from volunteer pilots and private plane owners.

Even though your vehicle doesn’t run anymore, it can still be accepted as a donation. Your car can be picked up free of charge in the Twin Cities and Rochester area. You don’t even have to be home during the pick-up. Simply make sure you have the paperwork in the vehicle. Vehicles will be picked up immediately, within 24-48 hours upon filing a donation form.

The auto salvage program works by saving a vehicle and fixing it up for sale instead of junking it and selling its parts. Other types of vehicles like trucks, all terrain vehicles, motorcycles, boats, trailers, and jet skis are not traded off as junk, but are sold at auction dealers that can fix and resell them. What is considered as a junk car is one which repair would outweigh its auction value.

For every car donation MN residents make, veterans all over the country are helped in various ways. Experienced and trained facilitators can help guide citizens in their car donation process. Minnesota residents are also entitled to a tax benefit when they donate their car. You can check with your local tax advisor or accountant to determine the amount of your benefit.

Types of car donations MN residents can give to their local charity include repairables, cars for resale, recyclable cars, and those under an auto salvage recycling program. Upon giving your car, you receive an official tax receipt, and your noncash charitable contribution can be used in filing your taxes to reduce tax liability. Car donations don’t entail any hidden charges.

Every car donation MN residents give also helps charities like The Red Tail Project, MN Military Family Foundation, and MN Assistance Council for Veterans.
