How to Donate your Car to Help Purple Heart Veterans
Did you know that over 200,000 veterans of war are homeless?
That is a staggering statistic recently released by "USA Today" that
makes it clear that Veterans need our help. In addition, many of the homeless
veterans have received the Purple Heart Medal of Honor. Unfortunately, funding
from the government has not been enough to help them get back on their feet.
Veterans of war sacrificed their life for our freedom. We have an obligation to support the ones that gave so much to us. While life can be unfair, we must take responsibility and help disabled Purple Heart Veterans.
One way to help is by donating your car. As you may know, owning a car is an investment. However, after thousands of miles and costly repairs, a car can be a headache to get rid of. Selling your car can take time. Giving your car to a junkyard will not give you a good return on investment. Many charities are now promoting their car donation services to help raise funds for the charity and to help donors live an easier life.
Make sure that the charity is an IRS 501-C3 tax exempt organization. That signifies that the organization is eligible to receive tax deductible donations. Determine the fair market value of your car by using the Kelly's Blue Book site.
Most car donation forms are easy to fill out online. Fill in the vehicle information and schedule a free tow. Most charities accept running and non-running cars. Donors benefit by receiving a tax deduction for the car donation.
The car is then auctioned off to the less fortunate in the local community. The proceeds then benefit disabled Purple Heart Veterans. They are able to find shelter, medical attention and food. Donating your car is a simple and great way to give back to the ones that gave so much!
