Donate Your Car
Donate your car to CARITAS, and you may be restoring a person’s livelihood. All you need to provide is your car and your title…we do the rest!
Through our “Wheels to Work” program, eligible clients needing reliable transportation to secure work are qualified to invest in the cars you donate! This huge step toward stability and provides important life skills training on many levels. Call Marilyn Milio at (804) 343-5008 x 406 for more information about how to drop off your vehicle at 700 Dinwiddie Avenue.
After that, we will handle the following steps:
- When we receive the title, it will be signed over to CARITAS
- CARITAS will take the title to DMV and process the paperwork to transfer the title
- We will look up your car’s Kelly Blue Book Value.
- If it is valued over $500.00, a 1098C will be issued to you along with a thank-you letter for your donation
- If it is valued under $500, we will simply issue you a thank-you letter
- This generous donation from you will make such a difference by removing a major obstacle standing between one of our clients and self-sufficiency. We thank you in advance for considering CARITAS the next time you plan to donate your vehicle!
- We want to pass along an opportunity, not a problem, so please only donate vehicles that have life left in them (just like our gently used furnishings at the Furniture Bank!). We can take care of minor fixes such as batteries or tires, but CARITAS does not have the ability to make repairs.
If you are interested in learning more about how you can help, please contact Chief Development Officer Clara Stokes at (804) 887-1571 or email@example.com.
To be considered for a gift in these challenging times is an honor in and of itself, and CARITAS would greatly appreciate whatever consideration its friends–new and old–may give in support of our mission. You may not know that CARITAS is funded mostly with private contributions; we rely on the generosity of this community. CARITAS is committed to using your funds wisely. We hold a four-star rating on Charity Navigator, silver status on Guidestar, and we are a Better Business Bureau accredited charity.
