Protecting through connecting: wilderness, wildlife and people
As the heart of the global wilderness community for over 40 years, The WILD Foundation protects wilderness while meeting the needs of human communities, working across cultures and boundaries by collaborating with local peoples, organizations, the private sector, and governments to create dynamic practical projects and communications initiatives. WILD's work promotes and demonstrates Nature Needs Half, a science-based and common-sense vision in which humans and wild nature share our planet so that large natural areas - land and water - are of sufficient size and are interconnected so they can continue to provide essential, life-supporting services that assure both human health and prosperity, and a bountiful, beautiful resource of wild nature. WILD is also the founder and steward of the World Wilderness Congress, the world's longest-running, public, international conservation program.

Taking military families from battle-ready to family-ready
Project Sanctuary is a therapeutic military family program that focuses on the needs, challenges, and concerns that our military families face every day. We work with veterans, active-duty service members, and their families with our exclusive three part A.R.T. program, combining counseling, education, self-development, and recreational therapy to help build well-adjusted families. We assist the military service members by helping them heal from the effects of war, providing a safe place to heal, helping reconnect the family unit and treating all members of the family at their level of need—which enables the service member to reintegrate into their family and community successfully. Our programs focus on the entire family's mental health and well-being first as we take them through the steps towards creating a sustainable balanced and thriving family– and life.

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).
