How to Donate a Car

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.

        Paper.  Download and print a form. Submit it by mail, fax or email.

        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 the tow company.

Use this checklist to prepare.

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.

Tax Receipt

Per IRS regulations, a tax receipt, which contains the value of 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.
