Maintaining and protecting Vermont's Long Trail since 1910
Since 1910, the Green Mountain Club's (GMC) mission has been to make the Vermont Mountains play a larger part in the life of the people by protecting and maintaining the Long Trail System and fostering, through education, the stewardship of Vermont's hiking trails and mountains. GMC primarily cares for the Long Trail. Additionally, GMC's advocacy and education efforts also safeguard Vermont's many other hiking trails. GMC volunteers and staff teach low-impact practices and safety skills that outdoor enthusiasts use whenever they hit the backwoods. Through its land protection program in northern Vermont, the Club has protected more than fifty-five miles of the Long Trail System and 16,000 acres of backcountry land.

A place of hope for children and families since 1894
New England Kurn Hattin Homes was founded in 1894 by Reverend Charles Albert Dickinson, who believed that young children in need or orphans could be cared for in a nurturing rural setting rather than the urban childcare institution which existed at the time. Today our mission and commitment to provide services to children and families are as strong as they were when the initial seeds were planted. Kurn Hattin is a charitable home and school dedicated to helping children grow up to become happy, productive members of society. Our program is uniquely qualified to address the complex issues of family values and children in need and at risk. Some 105 boys and girls, ages five to fifteen, and staff members form the Kurn Hattin community.Mission Statement: Kurn Hattin Homes transforms the lives of children and their families forever.

The positive place for kids
The Boys & Girls Club of Burlington has been serving the children and youth of Chittenden County since 1942. The Club was started as a place for boys who needed constructive alternatives to hanging out on Burlington street corners. As the years progressed, the Club evolved its membership to include girls as well as boys from very diverse racial, economic, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Today, the Club reaches children and youth through its many programs and constant outreach activities from two locations in the Old North End of Burlington. The mission of the Boys and Girls Club of Burlington is to inspire and enable community youth, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, healthy, responsible and caring citizens.

Tax Benefits

It is important to us at Instant Car Donation that you receive the largest allowable tax deduction possible without having to navigate complexities or perform extensive research. We pre-qualify all of our participating 501-c(3) non-profit charities to verify your donation will be tax deductible. The process will be streamlined for both you and the charity of your choice. We will provide you with an IRS 8283 tax form after your donation is complete.

The Importance of Choice

Donating a car is one of the most financially responsible ways to make a large charitable contribution.  Although the donee receives a tax benefit, the charity may benefit even more, by receiving a windfall that can help it to fund important projects.   Because of this, one of our primary goals is to match donees with the charities that best reflect their beliefs and values.  At Instant Car Donation, we always make charity choice an integral part of the process.  

For those of you who haven't decided on a particular charity, you can also indicate that on your contribution form and we will be happy to help your choose a charity that's right for you.

Your Local Community

There are many charities in your local area which can benefit from your car donation. We not only help you donate to a nearby charity, but we also focus on providing small local non-profits with an easy way to accept donations so that they can focus on their important work. Often the donation will make the biggest difference for such charities, bringing people together while helping support those in their local community who need it the most.

Is there a tax benefit for donating my car?
