Frequently Asked Questions:
What can I donate?
You can donate most any vehicle, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, and recreational vehicles. They do not have to be currently running. Your vehicle donation will be sold at an auction or to a salvage company depending on its condition.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes, Rochester Hope for Pets is a nonprofit organization and all donations qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return. If you have questions, please consult with your tax advisor.
What do I need in order to donate my car?
The title to the car must be in your name. We will also need some information about where the car is located and the condition of the car. This will assist us in scheduling appropriate towing arrangements.
Will you pick up my car?
A towing company will call you to schedule the pick-up of your vehicle. You will need to give the driver the keys to the vehicle as well as your signed title.
How is the value of my car determined?
The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to complete the IRS form 1098C. Vehicles for Charity will supply this documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.
