Preserving whaling history
The Old Dartmouth Historical Society/New Bedford Whaling Museum was founded in 1903 to create and foster an interest in the history of the territory included in Old Dartmouth; promote historical research; and collect documents and relics and provide for their proper custody. The Society established the Whaling Museum in 1907 to tell the story of American whaling and to describe the role New Bedford played as the whaling capital of the world in the nineteenth century. Today, the Museum is the largest museum in America devoted to the history of the American whaling industry and its greatest port. Through exhibits, publications, and programs, the Museum brings to life the whaling era and the history of the local area.

Instant Car Donation

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?

We can ensure your vehicle goes to a charity which is eligible to receive tax deductible contributions and help you recieve a reciept for your donation. If you itemize your deductions you may be able to get a tax benefit for your car donation. For donations up to $500 you can use Kelley Blue Book and for larger donations the charity must verify what they recieved for the car donation (more information).


How will my car be picked up?

We will arrange a tow truck to come pick up your vehicle and we will take care of the entire process. It couldn't be easier to help the charity of your choice today!


Do you accept donations for cars that are damaged or missing parts?

Your vehicle does not have to be in good condition for us to accept it, though we do not take inoperable cars at this time.


Can you help me find a charity that fits my personal values?

We would love to help you make sure your donation goes to a cause you care personally about by helping you pick a charity that meets your personal values. In fact, this is so important to us that we do it every time you donate with us!


What charities do you support?

Instant Car Donation proudly supports many respected local & national nonprofit organizations in your local area. We work hard for you to ensure the organization gets maximum support from your vehicle. We are happy to connect with any non profit, whether they happen to be included on our website or not. Just give us the name of the nonprofit you would like to work with, and we will connect with them. 


How do I prepare my title?

All owners on the title must complete the section of the title labeled "assignment of title by owner" or "transfer of ownership by seller". Most states require printing and signing owner names.

You should fill out any fields that require information about a buyer/purchaser/transferee with information about who you are donating the vehicle to.

You may find detailed instructions for your home state here.


How long does this process take?

We will call you within 48 hours to make sure we have all your information and will arrange for a tow truck to come to you for easy pickup. If it is taking a bit longer feel free to contact us.
