Donate your used vehicle.

If you’re looking to get rid of a vehicle but don’t want the hassle of selling it or fixing it, consider donating it to Atlanta Mission. The donation process is safe and simple. You get rid of your unwanted vehicle, qualify for a tax deduction, and make a difference in someone’s life. 

Your donation will provide meals, shelter, clothing, job training, recovery programs, transitional housing, spiritual training, and more — just about everything a person needs to get back on their feet, find a fresh start, and have hope for the future. Check out the Programs & Services page to learn more about how your donation will impact lives.

Frequently Asked Questions

Atlanta Mission benefits by receiving a cash donation to fund new and existing programs and increase community awareness.

You benefit by being able to reduce your taxable income when taxes are itemized. Plus you avoid the costs associated with selling your car. No need to pay for advertising, no loss of privacy and possible security risk, and no need to pay for vehicle registration, insurance, and repairs to keep your car in running condition while you wait for a buyer.

You can donate most any vehicle, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. They do not have to be currently running. Your vehicle donation will be sold at an auction or to salvage depending on condition.

If you are uncertain as to whether or not your vehicle is eligible, please contact the vehicle donation program toll free at 1-866-628-2277.

We make donating your car as simple and convenient as possible. A tow company will contact you within two to three business days. Call our representatives at 1-866-628-2277

No. Special arrangements can be made by calling our representative.

The only paperwork needed is a signed, clear title. Have your title with you when you call-in your donation or enter it online. [Please note: a clear title indicates the title is in the name of the donor without a lien].

For states that require emissions inspections, you may donate your vehicle without these documents.

Yes, our driver will issue a tow receipt at the time of pick-up. This is not your final tax receipt unless the sale of your vehicle does not exceed $500. This initial acknowledgement will indicate your name as well as the year, make, model and condition of the car you are donating. It will be your only receipt if your vehicle sells for less than $500.

The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to include the IRS form 1098C. Vehicles for Charity will supply this documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.
