Unwanted vehicle? Don't trade in, donate to us

The Access Fund has partnered with Vehicles for Charity to process donated vehicles. You can call Vehicles for Charity at 866-628-CARS and they will answer any other questions you may have, as well as make arrangements to pick up your donation. You can also click here to arrange to donate your vehicle online.

You can donate most any vehicle including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. They do not have to be currently running. Your vehicle donation will be sold at an auction or to salvage depending on the condition, and 70% of the proceeds will go towards keeping climbing areas open! See below for some frequently asked questions regarding vehicle donation. 

What do I need to donate my car?  The title to the car must be in your name. We will also need some information about where the car is located and the condition of the car. This will assist us in scheduling appropriate towing arrangements. 

Will you pick up my car?  A towing company will call you to schedule the pick up of your vehicle. You will need to give the driver the keys to the vehicle as well as your signed title.

Is my donation tax-deductible?  The Access Fund is a non-profit organization and all donations qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return. You are entitled to an itemized tax deduction of the fair market value of your vehicle.  

How is the value of my car determined?  The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500, you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to include the IRS form 1098C. Vehicles for Charity will supply this documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.
