How You Can Help by Donating Your Car to A Single Mother
While there are many benefits to donating your car, such as the tax deduction you receive and providing training and jobs to formerly incarcerated individuals, perhaps the most feel-good aspect of donating your vehicle is helping someone in need. Vehicles for Change (VFC) ensures your donation goes to help a worthy cause, such as providing transportation to a single mother and her family.
Deduct Your Charitable Donation
It helps a mom and family in need.
The Wall Street Journal says, “The Covid-19 pandemic has caused people from Beijing to Boston to shun public trains, trams and buses, as they fear contracting the disease from contact with strangers in public places.” This has made traveling to work more difficult for many single mothers without access to a car. Your donation provides mothers with reliable transportation to work and the grocery store so that they may provide for their families. Your donation could help a family in need, like Tarita Williams, who lacked reliable transportation to her job. Since receiving her donated vehicle, Tarita is now able to safely travel to and from work and take her children to their necessary appointments.
It’s a feel-good opportunity.
According to researchers at Stony Brook University, your brain releases chemicals that give you a sense of peace and joy when doing something good for someone else, like donating. Studies even suggest that it helps lengthen your life. That makes the old adage true — it really is better to give than receive.
You benefit from tax advantages.
VFC maximizes the tax deduction for every one of their donors. Depending on the vehicle, cars are repaired and awarded to a family or sold on the resale lot. Our resale lot helps us maximize your donation because sale profits are used to employ VFC technicians and provide materials needed to repair cars for families. This allows us to obtain the most profitable advantage for VFC while maximizing your donation.
We make it hassle free.
We do all of the heavy lifting for you. We’ll pick up your car, fix any repair it, and if the car is applicable, we find the families, and help you with the tax donation forms. So, what do you need to do? Make the decision to change someone’s life through your donation and call our office today.
You’ll inspire your children.
One of the best lessons a parent can teach their child is to be kind and generous. Your donation can create a ripple effect and demonstrate charitable behavior to your children.
