What type of vehicles do you accept for donation?
We accept most vehicles and vessels including, but not limited to cars, trucks, motorcycles, mopeds, motorboats, sailboats and jet skis.

 

What paperwork do I need to donate my car?
We would like the Certificate of Title and most recent registration and safety check. If you do not have one or more of these papers please call us anyway. It is often possible to make arrangements to get duplicates for you.  Vehicle manuals, repair books and service records are always appreciated.

 

Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes, vehicle and vessel donations made to bona fide charitable organizations are tax- deductible to the full extent of the law.
However, individual tax situations vary so please check with a tax professional to determine what if any tax benefit you may receive from a tax-deductible donation.

 

How does my tax deduction work?
The IRS allows you to claim a tax deduction of:
a) the value of the vehicle up to $500.00 or
b) if the vehicle is sold for more than $500.00 you may claim the full sale price.
You will receive a thank you and acknowledgement letter from the charity once the vehicle is sold and it will include the sale price of the vehicle.

 

My vehicle is not currently running, can I still donate it?
Yes, we are able to accept most vehicles running or not. Exceptions might include older vehicles whose value after towing and repair would not bring a benefit to the charity.  To find out if we can accept your vehicle, please complete and submit our Vehicle Donation Form or call us during business hours at (808) 834-6603.

 

Can arrangements be made for my vehicle to be picked up?
Yes, we can arrange to have your vehicle picked up by a professionally licensed and insured towing company.
Once we have determined that we can accept your vehicle as a donation we will coordinate an appointment with you and the tow driver.  At your convenience the tow driver will meet you at your vehicle. He will give you your donation packet and you will give him the Certificate of Title and other vehicle paperwork.

 

How long will it take to pick up my vehicle?
We can usually arrange to have your vehicle picked up within 48 hours.

 

Do you accept vehicles for donation from the neighbor islands?
Yes! However, the vehicle has to be drivable.  We will make all the shipping arrangements for you and get a booking number. You just need to take the vehicle to Young Brothers on the pre-arranged date, sending it to us C.O.D. There is no cost to you.
All the paperwork will be handled through the mail and/or via fax or email.
