Donating a car to charity if you want to be generous or get a tax write off can be worth it.

However if you can sell the car for a good price instead of donating it to a charity then selling the car yourself or trading the car in on another car purchase would probably be a much better option.

However I have donated a scrap car to a charity who then hauled it off for scrap price and then used the money they got for scrap on the car to fund their charity.

I got a good tax write off and tax deduction so it was worth donating the old non working, non running scrap car to charity as it helped them, helped me and got the old scrap car out of my yard.

But if the car was running and was able to drive down the road then I would sell it myself to get the most money from it or use it as a trade in for another vehicle.

If you do donate your car to charity just make sure the charity is registered and legit and check reviews to be sure they are a real charity company.

I think donating a car to charity can be a great way to support a good cause and potentially get a tax deduction. Make sure to choose a reputable charity to make sure that your donation is used effectively. Contacting charity water customer service can help you understand the process and benefits if you want to donate to them. Additionally, donating a car can save you the hassle of selling it yourself. It's a generous way to make a positive impact in your community.
