Your car donation can help St. Jude fight childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The money from the sale of your vehicle will contribute to our lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children®.
We’ve partnered with Charitable Adult Rides and Services (CARS) to make donating your car easy. Vehicle donations are eligible for tax deductions.
Why donate your car to St. Jude?
Every donation, including a vehicle donation, helps provide lifesaving treatments to children fighting childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
However, donating a car to St. Jude has a number of other benefits as well.
Benefits of donating a car to charity
- Free up space in a garage or driveway: Rather than letting an unused vehicle sit, let it go to a good cause and free up the space!
- Avoid expensive repairs: Instead of paying to repair a damaged or inoperable vehicle, let St. Jude take it off of your hands.
- Skip the hassle of selling: Donate a car to help save the lives of children worldwide, all while saving yourself the time and energy of selling it.
- Get a tax write-off: Donating a car to charity qualifies as a tax deduction. You can typically deduct your car’s fair market value or the sale price of the vehicle when you include your car donation in your charitable contribution deduction.
