Frequently Requested Resources


Vehicles for Change accepts and repairs donated cars and awards them to pre-qualified families for as little as $950, enabling low-income families to become self-sufficient. A nonprofit organization, VFC receives 99 percent of its car donations from the public. Since 1999, Vehicles for Change has awarded more than 6,200 cars to low-income families, changing the lives of more than 22,000 people. Eligible families are referred to Vehicles for Change through partnering social service-type agencies. VFC car donors gain a substantial tax advantage that’s not available with most other charities. We’re the only organization in Maryland and Northern Virginia that makes it possible for donors to deduct the full fair market value of their car because their donation is awarded to a low-income family.
