The donation process

The process is quite simple and can usually be completed within five to ten days.

  • The initial inquiry, in the form of a phone call or completion of our online donation form, takes only five to ten minutes.
  • The donation is credited to LifeSpark.
  • The donor is instructed to remove the license plates from the vehicle and sign the title prior to pick-up.
  • Vehicle pick-up is scheduled with the tow company. The cost is covered by VFC.
  • Depending on the condition of the vehicle, it is either taken to an auction for sale or to an auto crusher for recycling purposes.
  • A donation acknowledgement as well as a thank you letter is mailed within 30 days following the sale of the vehicle per IRS requirements (upon receipt of a negotiable title).

Vehicles accepted

Vehicles for Charity (VFC) accepts automobiles, trucks, vans, recreational vehicles, motorcycles, dirt bikes, tractors, boats, and trailers. Some vehicles will not sell at an auction. Those vehicles are delivered to an auto recycler or salvage company, either of which pays a set amount for the vehicle regardless of condition.

  • It is important that you contact your state Department of Motor Vehicles in order to find out how to properly notify them that you have sold the vehicle and transfer liability.
