Avoid the hassles of selling your car

Getting rid of an old car isn’t easy. If you decide to sell your car via private party, you’ll have to spend the time and effort creating an advertisement, meeting with potential buyers, negotiating a deal, and completing paperwork before you can finally be free of your vehicle. At Ohio Valley Goodwill, we can save you the time and stress of trying to sell your car. When you donate a car to Goodwill in Cincinnati, there’s no guessing or negotiating—it’s a sure thing. We accept vehicle donations in any condition, even cars that aren’t running! Fill out a donation form to get started today.

Take advantage of tax benefits

One of the main reasons many people choose to donate a car to charity is to take advantage of potential tax benefits. When you donate a vehicle to charity, or even a boat or motorcycle, you may be able to claim it on your itemized tax return. To find out more, see the guidelines from the IRS for charitable contributions www.irs.gov or by calling 1-800-829-1040. Get more information about donating vehicles here.

Make an impact in your community

When it comes down to it, donating is about helping others. And when you donate a car to Ohio Valley Goodwill, you’re helping people in several different ways! First, your donation will be auctioned at our weekly public auto auction, which provides an affordable car-buying option for people in our community.
