The Impact of Car and Truck Donations for Charities

When it comes to giving back, you have several options in Baltimore. You can volunteer to feed those experiencing homelessness, donate clothes or lightly used house items to shelters, or tutor children who need extra academic help, just to name a few options. No matter how you choose to give back, it will have an impact not just on the life of an individual but by association, the community at large as well.

When you choose to donate your car or truck to a charity like Vehicles for Change, your impact is multi-layered. In this article, we share how donors like you make a difference in the lives of others simply by donating cars to charities like Vehicles for Change.

  1. Vehicles for Change is the nation’s largest affordable car ownership program. Not only do we sell cars at great rates to families in need, but we also help families increase their access to employment opportunities, fresh food, recreational activities, and education. By donating your car or truck to us, you are contributing to these efforts.
  2. We work hard to combat poverty by providing reliable and affordable vehicles for families to access better-paying jobs in order to support and care for their families.
  3. We provide families with low-interest car loans to allow them to build credit + also offer an orientation course to prepare them for car ownership.
  4. We also have a job training program called Full Circle Auto Repair and Training Center where we provide re-entry skills to men and women to become skilled auto mechanics. We are proud to say we have a 95% job placement rate for our Full Circle graduates.

By choosing to donate your car or truck to Vehicles for Change, you are contributing to every single one of these efforts as well, making your impact larger than you may have once realized.


Do More Than Just Sell Your Car or Truck

We realize you always have the option to just sell your car or truck rather than donate it, but when you do choose the donation path, you are truly making a difference in other people’s lives.

Because of individuals like you donating their cars, we have been able to award thousands of cars to low-income families. That’s thousands of lives improved with access to better-paying jobs and the opportunity for parents to be present at their child’s school and extracurricular activities. The impact is simply undeniable. In addition, you also receive a tax write-off for your donation.
