How Can Your Old Car Make a Difference?

If you have an older car sitting in your garage or driveway, you might not think it holds much value. The truth is, your used vehicle has the power to make a meaningful difference right here in your community!

Ohio Valley Goodwill is proud to accept car donations for our weekly Auto Auction, which raises vital funds for our mission to change lives through the power of work. The community impact created by our Auto Auction is widespread, and it’s only possible when we receive vehicle donations from people like you!

So, how exactly can your old car make a difference? Here’s a look at a few of the many reasons to donate your car (or truck, RV, or boat) to Goodwill:

#1: Help People Go to Work in Your Community

At Ohio Valley Goodwill, we know that employment is about more than earning a paycheck; it’s a chance to gain independence, self-confidence, and community inclusion. That’s why we’re so passionate about breaking down barriers to employment for individuals with disabilities and veterans through vocational services and programs!

When you donate a car to Goodwill, you can be confident that the proceeds raised will go on to help job seekers with disabilities and veterans achieve personal and vocational success. The decision to donate a car to Goodwill is a simple, generous act that changes lives and creates a positive ripple effect in your community!

#2: Opportunity for a Tax Advantage

Donating a car to Goodwill creates a big impact — the positive impact that the IRS wants to encourage. This means that when you donate a car to charity, you may be able to claim a tax advantage on your itemized return. After you donate a car to Goodwill in Cincinnati, you’ll receive a receipt to use when filing your taxes. Learn more and see the guidelines from the IRS for charitable contributions at irs.gov.

#3: Free Up Space with Little Effort

Hanging onto an old car (or boat, RV, or motorcycle) for too long can become a burden — and an eyesore. When you want to reclaim that space in your garage or driveway, you might be wondering about the best way to get rid of an older car in Cincinnati. Selling a used vehicle isn’t always easy, especially if it’s not in roadworthy condition. Thankfully, there’s another option!

Ohio Valley Goodwill gladly accepts vehicle donations in any condition, whether they’re running or not. We even offer a free vehicle tow so you can donate your vehicle in Cincinnati quickly and easily. It’s really that simple!
