4 Simple Steps to Donating Your Car to the Cincinnati Goodwill Auto Auction

Picture this: You’re cruising down the highway with the windows down and the radio up. A sunbeam warms your face. What are you driving? Something other than the vehicle taking up space in your garage right now? Maybe it’s time for an upgrade before the weather turns warm and prime for a road trip.

But what to do with your current car or truck? Do some good, skip the hassle of selling, and donate it to Goodwill with these four simple steps!

1.  Hop Online. The first step to donating your vehicle to Goodwill is filling out an online form. It’s short and sweet, and should only take you a few minutes.

2.  Schedule a Tow. (If you need it!) Did you know Ohio Valley Goodwill will tow your vehicle away for FREE if it’s not in running condition? It’s true! We make the donation process as quick and painless as possible.

3.  Figure Your Tax Value. Donating a vehicle to Goodwill might make you eligible for a tax advantage. The tax advantage value of your car, truck, or boat will be up to the first $500 of the fair market value of your donation vehicle. When you donate a car in Cincinnati to Goodwill, we’ll provide you with a donation receipt for tax purposes.

4.  Tell Your Friends. Okay, this isn’t a required step, but many people don’t know how easy it is to donate a vehicle to Goodwill in Cincinnati. You can help by spreading the word! Your donation supports Goodwill’s skills training and job placement services, which provide a path to independence and fulfillment for people with disabilities in our community.

Now that your old vehicle is doing good things for individuals facing barriers to employment, you’re free to upgrade to a new set of wheels. Whether you’re in the market for a savvy sedan, a sporty convertible, or even a motorcycle so you can feel the wind in your hair this spring, it’s time to start shopping!
