Vehicle Donation

Vehicle Donation Program

We’re not “lion”: your old vehicle can make a real impact on wildlife! Clean out your garage and support our wildlife conservation efforts at the same time.

It’s easy. Call toll free 1-888-966-2279 to schedule a pickup that's convenient for you. Your vehicle donation representative will also provide you with confirmation of your donation.

The following vehicles are accepted, no matter their condition:

  • Airplanes/helicopters
  • Boats
  • Cars
  • Farm equipment
  • Horse trailers
  • Motorcycles/mopeds
  • RVs/campers
  • Semi-tractors
  • SUVs
  • Trucks

Tax Benefit Eligibility

If the gross proceeds from the sale of your donated vehicle are $500 or more, and your Social Security number is provided to our representative at the time of your donation, you will also receive an IRS tax form 1098-C stating the sale price of the vehicle. This amount is what you actually claim on your itemized tax return.

According to the tax law effective January 1, 2005, if the claimed value of the donated vehicle exceeds $500, the taxpayer is limited to the gross proceeds of the sale.
