4 Great Reasons to Donate Your Car This Winter

Do you have an unwanted car that’s taking up
space? You might be wondering what to do with it, especially as we’re entering
the cold winter months. After all, it’s no fun to plow or shovel snow around a
car that’s just sitting in your driveway. Thankfully, there is a solution:
Donate your car to Goodwill!

Here are
some great reasons to donate your car to Ohio Valley Goodwill this winter:

Upgrade your vehicle before the snow arrives

If your current car
isn’t well-suited for snowy and icy roads, it could be time to replace it with
something that’s more reliable. Donate your car to Goodwill and free up extra
space in your garage for a new-to-you vehicle!

Make someone’s holiday

When you donate a
vehicle to Ohio Valley Goodwill, it will be resold in our in-house auto auction
right here in Cincinnati. Someone in your community might be looking for the
exact vehicle that you don’t want anymore! By donating your car, you’re giving
it a new life with a new owner.

Create jobs in your community

Donating your car to
Goodwill will also further our mission to change lives through the power of
work! That’s because the proceeds from our auto auction are used to help fund
life-changing job training and employment services for individuals with
disabilities and our nation’s veterans. When you choose to donate a car to
Goodwill, you can be confident that the money raised will stay in your community
and help people find and obtain meaningful employment.

Get a break on your taxes

Donate your car to
Goodwill before January 1st, and you could be eligible for a tax benefit!
That’s because donating a car to Ohio Valley Goodwill has a big impact on
communities in Cincinnati, the kind of positive impact that the IRS wants to
encourage. When you donate a vehicle to Goodwill, even a boat or motorcycle,
you may be able to claim it on your itemized taxes. To find out more, see the
