Goodwill Car Donation is accepting vehicle donations in Chicago and throughout Illinois. Donated cars in Illinois are used to directly fund opportunities made by Goodwill, which include employment, job training, and community programs that aid individuals with disabilities, a shortage of educational or job experience, and other challenges in finding employment.
Chicago vehicle donations can be any type of car, truck, van, or SUV. Vehicles do not need to be running to be accepted. Jet skis, motorcycles, RVs, boats, airplanes and pop-up trailers are also acceptable as vehicle donations. Vehicle donations are received regardless of the condition or age of the vehicle.
Goodwill Car Donation arranges free home towing to pick up the donated vehicle within 24 to 48 hours of scheduling the donation. From there, the donated vehicle is sold at auction for the highest attainable amount. The proceeds from the auctioned vehicle are used to fund the mission of Goodwill, which includes community programs.
Donors who participate in the Goodwill Car Donation program not only are able to get rid of an old car while contributing to a charitable cause, but also receive a tax deduction for vehicle donation. Goodwill is a federally identified 501(c)(3) organization, which allows their organization to receive tax-deductible donations. Goodwill Car Donation assists donors by providing receipts and necessary documentation for tax deduction purposes.
To donate a car in Illinois, prospective donors simply need to get in touch with Goodwill Car Donations to begin the process. After answering a few questions about their vehicle, Goodwill will arrange a free towing service to pick up the vehicle within 24 to 48 hours, Monday thru Friday. Interested donors can call (800) 433-3828 to speak with a live operator 24/7 or fill out a simple form on the website below.
