Tax Writeoff May Pay for Black Friday Purchases

Tax Write Off For a Donated Vehicle Can Be Significant

Dollarphotoclub_71433092Serving the Concord, San Ramon, Clayton, Lamorinda and entire Bay Area for 16 years, Clunkers4Charity and Concord/Clayton Sunrise Rotary Club have been providing valuable tax credits when vehicles are donated, running or not. A quick call to 925-360-5260 before 12/31/14 can yield big benefits — perhaps even pay for the Black Friday shopping you and I did!

Our service includes additional benefits including the option of selecting one of many community non-profit organizations that receive 50% of all sale or sale-for-parts. See the list of non-profits supported.

Have a question? Our FAQ may have the answer. If not, please give us a call — we would be happy to help.

We’re often asked, why Clunkers4Charity and not another worthwhile organization that accepts vehicle donations?

First, check with the organization to determine how much every dollar goes to overhead. Clunkers4Charity overhead is very small — only the bare necessities to keep the organization running on all cylinders. This means that more of the sale proceeds go to the charities you designate!

About Clunkers 50/50 Split Program

Dollarphotoclub_35680071Before a vehicle is donated, typically a person will go to this website’s Donation Form and fill out the information necessary to process the request.

There is one addition that many people may not be aware. It’s our 50/50 Split program. Here’s how it works:

A 501C3 non-profit meets with us and if the acceptance criteria is met, their non-profit is announced on this website and they are added to the Donation Form.

On the Donation Form is a field labeled, “Select A Recipient”. Currently 16 non-profits are participating in Clunkers4Charity!

Dollar Donation is Maximized

Let’s say a donated vehicle we take to auction collects $2,000.  If a non-profit Recipient was selected among the 50/50  Split participants, $1,000 would go to that charity and $1,000 to Clunkers4Charity and the Clayton/Concord Sunrise Rotary Club.

You may be curious how much I get for a tax write-off. In this case, it’s $2,000. Yes, that’s right, a $2,000 tax deduction.

Why Donate to Clunkers4Charity?

It’s simple — everyone benefits:  the local community, local and international charities and of course, your pocketbook! Contact us with your questions and requests for pick-up of a vehicle, running or not.
