Donating a Car

It may seem like a peculiar question to ask – but have you ever found yourself in possession of a car, boat, RV or other vehicle that you do not need? At Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services, we have a solution that is both rewarding and easy to implement. Whether you are managing a loved one’s estate, or simply have passed down that car to the last of your teenagers; donating a vehicle to Dixon Center will have a lasting impact on veterans and their families.

Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services partners with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides and Services) to take that unwanted or unused vehicle off your hands. CARS streamlines the process, and their logistical and managerial support allows Dixon Center to focus on our mission. At Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services, we believe our veterans and military families can succeed where they live. We also believe that every organization can effectively integrate veterans and their families into their existing community-based programs. Our mission is to ensure both values are made possible. Our goal is not to create new programs. Rather, the goal is to enable the integration of military and veteran services into existing programs to increase impact. 

You can help. Donating your vehicle takes just a few quick steps and has none of the hassle of advertising it for sale, no strangers coming for a test drive or the liability and safety concerns that can go with that, your donation is picked up and sold. You receive a tax deduction, as allowable by law and Dixon Center receives a check. The proceeds support our work in serving veterans and military families across the Nation.

One of our recent car donors, Amy Casner had this to say about donating her college graduate’s car when she was ready to upgrade to a new one “The process was so easy, I made the call, CARS scheduled a pickup date and time, the car was picked up, signed over and within a few weeks, I got a tax deduction letter and Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services got a check. Simple and Satisfying. The car was gone without the hassle of trying to sell it and I got to support an organization I believe in!”

When you donate a car, truck, boat, RV, or other vehicle to Dixon Center, you become a key partner in increasing the quality of live for veterans and military families. CARS can accept working vehicles, but sometimes they can even accept vehicles that are not running – their extensive network of vendors allows them to resell these vehicles for parts. So, if you find yourself in the position of having a vehicle you no longer want or need, keep Dixon Center in mind. To donate your vehicle to Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services fill out the form here. Dixon Center operates under Fedcap Rehabilitation Services, Inc. a 501c3 organization, your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
