Frequently Asked Questions

What can I donate?

We accept most cars, trucks, trailers, boats and RVs. If you have any questions about what you can donate, please call 1-800-ADA-6570 (800-232-6570).

Is my donation tax deductible?

The American Diabetes Association is recognized by the IRS as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization and your donation is generally tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Please note: New legislation went into effect on January 1, 2005. See IRS.gov.

If your donated vehicle is sold for more than $500, you will receive an acknowledgment letter for tax purposes, which contains the VIN, date of sale, gross proceeds of the sale and the date of your donation.

However, each individual's tax situation is different and we recommend that you check with a tax professional to determine the amount of tax benefit, if any, you may receive from your donation.

What do I need to provide?

Besides the car, we would like the title to the vehicle. If you do not have it, call us anyway. It is possible that other arrangements may be made. Please call 1-800-ADA-6570 (-800-232-6570).

My car hasn't run in years. Can I still donate it?

Yes, most vehicles are accepted, running or not (exceptions include older vehicles whose value would not offset the cost of towing). To find out if we can accept your vehicle, please call 1-800-ADA-6570 (-800-232-6570), or fill out the online donation form.

Can you pick up vehicles in all 50 states?

It is possible to pick up most vehicles in the continental U.S. and Hawaii.

How will the car be picked up?

Arrangements will be made to have your vehicle towed away at a scheduled time.

How long will it take to pick up my car?

Someone will contact you to schedule an appointment within three or four business days at the most. If you need your car picked up sooner, please call 1-800-ADA-6570 (800-232-6570) to see if arrangements can be made.
