Vehicles for Change | Donate A Car
"I recently donated my car to Vehicles For Change through an incentive program with Mazda. I was in a bit of a pickle because, in order to get the incentive for my new vehicle, I had to have my car picked up by the tow company by 7/1 and provide proof that it was picked up. I called and spoke to a couple of people at Vehicles for Change who were all very pleasant but specifically, Simone Baptiste as the Mazda donation coordinator. She completely understood my situation and did everything she could to help me out and get the information I needed. She was very responsive in her communication and an absolute pleasure to work with. She has such a positive attitude and I never felt like I was just another person donating a car.
With everything going on in this world, it's great to know there are people like out there trying to make a difference. Whether that be through one donated car or one positive experience at a time, it's all worth it in the end."

Vehicles for Change makes it simple to donate a vehicle.
Step 1: Complete the Donation Form
This takes less than 10 minutes, and you have three options:
Online. Use our online form.
Phone. Call us at 855-820-7990.
You’ll receive an email confirmation from us within 24 hours (an evening or weekend donation will be responded to on the next business day).
Step 2: Schedule a Pick-Up
Within 24 hours of receiving a confirmation email from our VFC Director, you will be contacted by our towing service to schedule a free pick-up of the vehicle. If you need to speak to a towing representative sooner, please call us at 855-820-7990.
Step 3: Meet the Tow Truck
Please have the keys, signed title and lien release (if applicable) ready for our tow trucks. VFC tows donated vehicles through our in-house towing operation.
Please note: A donation receipt is provided by our tow truck driver at the point of pick up. This proof of donation can be used to cancel insurance and assist in returning tags to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
Per IRS regulations, a tax receipt, which contains the value of the donor’s tax deduction, is sent to the donor after their vehicle has been processed. As a complimentary service, VFC also provides a 1098c for all donations, except those that sell for under $500.
If the donated car is awarded to a family, a tax receipt will be sent within 30 days of the car’s pickup date. If the donated car is sent to auction or sold on our retail lot, a tax receipt will be sent within 30 days of the date of auction or sale.
