Charity Car Raffles

Author: Sarah Michaels

When it comes to car donations to support charity programs, many people think of the junk car donation -- having someone coming to haul away a car that barely runs. After all, plenty of people would prefer to sell their old vehicle if they can, particularly these days when money is tight for quite a few Americans and their families. However, there are always those who remain flush even when times are tough. And it's certainly not unusual to see a car donation in NYC, Los Angeles, or another area that consists of a very valuable vehicle. Not only is it a great way to give to charity, it can be a nice tax write-off.

In the case of a car that's worth a tidy sum of money, the charity in question may look for an alternative to the more typical car auctions. In some cases, a raffle may be used to bring in more funds for the charity program. That is the route that is being taken with a car donated by Jason Maxiell. The Detroit Piston's player has chosen to have his classic 1989 Chevy Camaro raffled off to raise money for a local charity. The raffle will be handled by the Pistons Care Telethon, with the proceeds supporting the Food Bank Council of Michigan. The winner of the raffle will be personally presented with the keys to their new car during the April 12th Piston's home game.

Many people wonder how to donate a car to support a cause they care about. Even if your vehicle isn't worth nearly as much as Maxiell's Camaro (and how many of us have cars that are?), it can still provide a worthwhile service to your community. Whether it's sold for profit at auction, used as a teaching tool for job skill programs, or provides transportation for those in need, donating cars to charity means helping those who really need it. Are you interested in donating an old car or truck? The Internet is a great place to find more information to make sure that the process goes smoothly for you.
