Selling Your Old Car? Why Not Donate It Instead?

Donating a car to charity is now a simple and convenient way to contribute to society. And it’s tax-deductible, too. Rather than sell your car, maybe you can consider donating it to an appropriate charity instead.

Many charities in MN accept car donations directly. Some organizations even specialize in it. The charities that specialize in car donations will take care of the paper work, and even pick up the car from your specified location. Certainly that’s a whole lot easier than finding a buyer for your car. You may not get compensation for it, but at least you’re doing it for a good cause.

But before you donate a car, there are things you have to know. First, make sure you have the legal ownership to the car. Check if you have the complete documents for your vehicle like registration and title. Incomplete documents can pose some problems later. You might even get charged with a felony.

Second, you need to find the appropriate organization who will accept your donation. Perhaps it is a good idea to contact the charities you feel strongly about. If they don’t accept car donations, then you can ask other organizations who do. There are several who find these cars useful and helpful to them.

If you have to look for another charity organization, try to find one that supports your advocacy and accepts car donations, as well. It’s better to donate to an organization that you fully support than to just donate your car because the organization does charity work. You can also find charities that handle car donations from other donate car MN organizations. They can give you referrals to charities who can benefit most from your donation.

If all else fails, you can search in the internet for charity organizations to whom you can donate your car MN car owners support. However, some organizations that accept car donations are in it for the profit. This is not totally bad though because they give from 10% to 50% of the car or parts sale to charity. Transporting car donations can be quite difficult and expensive, so some organizations give only a small amount to charity.

So when you plan to buy yourself a new car, consider donating the old one. You support your chosen advocacy and you help other people in your own small way. If you would like to know how to donate a car in MN, visit msnbc.msn.com.
