Donate Your Car to a Veteran, Struggling Family

1-800-Charity Cars is the only national car donation charity dedicated to providing donated vehicles to Veterans and struggling families which enables the donor at times to claim the “fair market value” tax deduction.

We believe that our program utilizes our nation’s valuable donated vehicle resources in the most productive way by providing free vehicles to Veterans and struggling families. Few programs impact the lives of individuals and families as dramatically and immediately as 1-800-Charity Cars.
