Vehicle Donation

Are you tired of looking at that old clunker in the garage?  Have you had enough of throwing money away on maintenance and repair bills?  Are you in the new car market and not interested in the hassle of selling or trading your current vehicle?  Do you want to contribute to a worthy cause and get a tax deduction as well?

DONATE YOUR VEHICLE to Central Valley Rails to Trails Foundation!  By donating your vehicle, you may receive greater value for your vehicle as a charitable contribution on your itemized tax return, you will avoid the hassles, cost and time demands of selling your vehicle and, most importantly, you will make a valuable contribution to help people in need in your community. In most cases, the sale amount received for your vehicle is 100% tax deductible.

The Central Valley Rails to Trails Foundation provides an easy-to-use program. Volunteers of America, Central Valley Rails to Trails Foundation’s car donation partner, has been effectively managing vehicle donation programs for over 20 years. Volunteer of America will:
