The ALS Society has faithful donors supporting their work via vehicle donations. From Halifax to Victoria, Canadians are impacted by ALS, and their response is to give.
ALS Society partnering with Donate a Car Canada to receive your gift
The ALS Society and its important work are helping Canadians. In March of 2017, Donate a Car Canada blogged about a $10,544.00 donation through a single car donation!
In August 2017, Donate a Car Canada is processing 37 new donations on behalf of ALS-affected donors.
Some, like a 1980 Buick Park Avenue in Thunder Bay, will be recycled. The same will happen with Javid’s Altima in Halifax, Gregory’s Victoria LeSabre, and Kathleen’s Grand Marquis in Nepean. Their donation amounts will reflect what’s happening in the current metal market. This outcome varies, province-by-province.
On the other hand, the ’06 Pontiac G6 in Calgary (or that $10,000.00 BMW donated in springtime), will be considered for re-sale. DACC assesses each vehicle individually. If a vehicle is newer than 10 years of age it will be considered for re-sale. Less than 200,000 kms on the odometer, in running condition, give us pause, too. Our agents may attempt to sell the car as-is to the highest bidder. The net proceeds from the sale are then sent off to the ALS Society to be put to good work.
How does a vehicle donation work? Will it cost anything?
It is important to Donate a Car Canada that the ALS Society is not charged any fees. Therefore, admin costs are kept to a minimum. Furthermore, there are also no costs to the donor.
DACC does apply a cost-of-business administration fee. We then forward the net proceeds to the ALS Society. And finally, the charity issues a tax receipt in the name of the registered owner.
