How to donate a car to a person?


“Can I donate my car to another person?”

Sure- after all, it’s your car.

You can do whatever you’d like with it.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Do you have the correct paperwork (title, registration, etc.)?
  • Check with your state DMV to see what’s required.
  • Remember to cancel your insurance.
  • Make sure you have a way for your car to get to the correct place; driving or towing.

This option won’t give you a deduction on your taxes, which is why it may be a good idea to donate to a charity whose work you believe in.

Make sure to choose a 501(c)3 organization- that is, registered with the IRS- in order to get your deduction.

Also, depending on the charity you choose, you may get other benefits too.
