What can I donate?
Chabad can accept most cars, trucks, vans, fleet vehicles, RV's yachts and other vehicles. If you have any questions about what you can donate, please call us at (773) 955-8672.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Since our organization is classified with the IRS as a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization, all vehicle donations may qualify as tax deductible.
What do I need to do to donate my vehicle?
The title to the vehicle is most helpful, but if you do not have title papers, please call us anyway since other arrangements can be made in most instances.
My car hasn't run in years. Can I still donate it?
Yes, we are able to accept most vehicles whether they run or not (exceptions include older vehicles whose value would not offset the cost of towing). However, the condition of your vehicle will affect the fair market value of your donation.
How is the value of my car determined?
We suggest you review IRS Publication 526 which sets forth the manner in which the IRS requires you to determine the value of your donated property.
