Donate Your Car or Property

Warrior Foundation Freedom Station has partnered with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) to help run our vehicle and property donation program. We use the proceeds from the sale of donated cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, boats, motorcycles and even airplanes to help fund the programs you love.

Here’s How It Works:

  1. Call 855-450-GIVE or submit the secure online donation form at:careasy.org
  2. Schedule Your Free Pick-up:Within 48 hours, one of CARS’ Vehicle Donor Support Representatives will contact you to complete the donation. In most cases, we can schedule the vehicle pick-up with a preferred licensed vendor on the initial call once the donation record has been completed.
  3. Receive a Donation Receipt:Vehicle donations are tax-deductible, and CARS will work to get the highest return per vehicle for you. According to the IRS Guidelines, you may claim fair market value for your donation up to the actual sale value. If your vehicle is sold for more than $500, the maximum amount of your deduction will be the sales price of the vehicle.

CARS is also a nonprofit and has been processing vehicle donations for more than 16 years. To learn more about CARS, our preferred vehicle donation program provider, visit careasy.org.
