Donate a Car | Any Charity!

Did you know you can donate a car to any Canadian charity? Your car, your cause! Your unused, unwanted car, truck, van, SUV, or motorcycle adds up to valuable donation dollars for the charity you are passionate about.

Donate a car, make a difference

If you have spent any time on our website or Google reviews, you might have already spotted the community caring that goes on around here? One of our charities recently wrote,

There is a direct correlation with the number of donations we receive to the number of people we can reach to help them with their decision to become an organ donor as well as any concerns or questions they might have regarding becoming a live organ donor. Donate a Car has been a big part in supporting the Canadian Transplant Society and we truly owe them much gratitude for their insight and generosity. Thank you so much Donate a Car.

Transplant Society

The charity you love (and we do mean ANY charity in Canada…in ANY province in the country) will welcome your car donation. There is no cost to your charity for this care, and every dollar can go to their meaningful work.

Getting it right for your charity of choice

Donate a Car Canada has been caring for Canada’s charities for over a decade. By either re-selling or recycling your donated vehicle, we work to get the highest donation possible for your cause.

The Canadian Cancer Society has been with us from the beginning:

Donate a Car Canada has graciously contributed to the Canadian Cancer Society for years, raising $1,495,691.79 and counting! (A little DACC edit: this number is now 1,569,263.13+!) Thanks to this program – and to all of you who choose to support the Canadian Cancer Society through the donation of your vehicle – we can continue to make progress that will save more lives today and for generations to come. Thank you for joining the fight.

Another long-time charity notes,

The Society is grateful to Donate a Car Canada for supporting our vision to help people “live well while creating a future without arthritis.”

And let’s not forget our furry-feathered-friend charities. These dollar-stretching organizations make every car donation penny count!

The Animal Rescue Crew Society would like to extend a heart felt testimonial of the crucial assistance that Donate a Car Canada provides us. AARCS mission is to improve the lives of animals by rescuing and providing sanctuary to abandoned, surrendered or abused animals; assisting communities to achieve healthy and respectful relationships with animals; promoting responsible and compassionate guardianship and advocating on behalf of all animals. We could not do our crucial work without the support of community networks such as Donate a Car Canada. They provide a unique way of contributing that makes it easy for donors and charities like us to benefit from their program. We have raised thousands of dollars [a side note from DACC: this number is now at $187,395.22+ and counting!] through their program that has allowed us to help animals in need now. Thank you Donate a Car for the support you have generously provided us.  Through help like yours we provide foster homes to animals in needs and regularly run rescue efforts.

Kids, critters, community, and more

Donating a vehicle is a big decision. My own family has donated several vehicles through the years, and each decision is made carefully. The biggest conundrum? Which charity to choose! Inn From the Cold (a local family shelter) was a heart-choice for us…out of a list of so many other worthy works!

When selecting the charity you wish to donate to, you might start by thinking close to home. What is the care that is most affecting you and yours right now? Perhaps the concern of the moment is Canada’s wildlife, or conservation? We have charities for that! If health is top priority, there is a charity tending the very aspect of physical wellbeing that you would like to support.

Choosing the cause for your car donation

Animal care, shelter, and rescue charities are top-choice charities for car donors. Charities promoting inclusion-affirmation-equity need vehicle donations, too! Theatre and the arts, literacy, and education are all held up by supporting charities. You can donate your car, truck, van, SUV, or motorcycle their way as well!

Vehicle donation really is all about what matters to you: your car, your cause, your tax receipt.

Take the time you need to select your charity. Scroll our Reviews to learn what it has been like for donors and charities alike to experience this kind of donation.

Reach out to one of your favourite charities to talk to them about what it has been like for them to receive vehicle donations. If they have not yet had that experience? No problem! Your donation will be the one that ensures they are added to our donation form drop-down list. That way, every future donor will have the chance to select them as Charity of Choice!
