Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 03, 2013
The federal government’s Cash for Clunkers program may have expired long ago, but there is still a way to receive value in return for an older vehicle, whether it is running or not: donate it to http://www.goodwillcardonation.org, for a charitable income tax deduction. Goodwill Car Donations, the Chicago car donation experts, is now accepting all types of cars in all conditions to help fund its many training and support programs across the nation. Making a car donation not only brings a tax deduction and the elimination of an unneeded vehicle, it also helps others in the process.
The resale of Goodwill Chicago vehicle donations provide funds for many of the organization’s most critical mission-focused programs, including job training, employment placement services, and other community-based programs for individuals with disabilities, who have minimal education or job experience, or are facing employment challenges.
In addition to car donations, Goodwill also welcomes donations of trucks, SUVs, campers and RVs, boats, motorcycles, trailers, and even airplanes. All car donations can be towed away free of charge after the owner complete a very simple procedure, either on line or by telephone. Donating is the easy solution to getting rid of a non-operative vehicle that has been sitting in the driveway or garage, long awaiting repairs that may be too costly for the owner to afford. All the owner has to do is contact Goodwill Car Donations, complete a brief donation questionnaire, and be prepared to present proof of ownership of the vehicle. All that has to be done is to connect to goodwillcardonation.org or place a toll free phone call to (800) 433-3828 24/7 to speak to a representative to complete all details in a matter of minutes.
Goodwillcardonation.org will arrange for a tow truck to pick up the vehicle within 24 to 48 hours at the donor’s convenience, and towing is completely free. The donated vehicle will be sold at auction for the highest possible amount and the proceeds from the vehicle donation will be used to better Goodwill’s programs.
In return, those who make vehicle donations become eligible for federal tax benefits that, in many cases, may match or outweigh money paid through a bottom line resale or a trade in. Additionally, donating a car to Goodwill saves the owner the hassles and expenses of placing classified ads, collecting payment, and having to be on call for potential buyers to view the car.
Above all else, a charity car donation protects the safety of the donor, who does not have to worry about having strangers come to his/her home. All arrangements are made online or by phone, and no outsider will call or visit the donor’s home.
There is nothing more satisfying for many than knowing that they have done something to help others. Receiving a tax deduction for donating a car or other vehicle is additional bonus for a charitable act.
