If you have a vehicle (car, truck, boat, recreational vehicle) that you are thinking of trading in or selling, please consider donating it to the Providence Marianwood Foundation’s “Donate a Car” Program.
When your vehicle is sold, the proceeds will go to the Providence Marianwood Foundation to support our residents and programs, especially providing financial help to elderly residents who have outlived their life savings and depend on the generosity of others to pay for the uncompensated cost of their care.*
Providence Marianwood Foundation has partnered with Car Program LLC which accepts most vehicles, including cars, trucks, trailers, boats and RVs. The donation process is easy online or by phone. Please make sure when you donate directly through Car Program LLC that you indicate Providence Marianwood Foundation as your charity of choice. Thank you!
* You may be able to deduct the fair market value of your vehicle as a charitable contribution for income tax purposes. See Frequently Asked Questions below for more information and consult with your tax specialist.
We accept most vehicles and vessels, including but not limited to cars, trucks, trailers, boats and RVs.
The Providence Marianwood Foundation is classified with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Because individual tax situations vary, please check with a tax professional to determine what, if any, tax benefit you may receive from your donation.
Our car program accepts most vehicles, running or not (exceptions include older vehicles whose value would not offset the cost of towing). To find out if we can accept your vehicle, please complete and submit the online donation form.
We would like the title to the vehicle, but if you do not have it, you can call to find out if other arrangements may be made.
Please call Car Program at 1-800-240-0160 seven days a week.
Yes, we are able to pick up accepted vehicles in the United States.
The processing center will arrange to have your vehicle towed away at a scheduled time by a professionally licensed, bonded and insured towing company.
You will be contacted by telephone within three to four business days. If you need your car to be picked up sooner, please let us know, as the processing center can often accommodate rush orders.
The IRS allows you, the taxpayer, to claim a tax deduction of
the value of your vehicle up to $500. If your vehicle sells for
more than $500, you will receive a letter with the value for tax
purposes. Additional IRS guidelines to help you determine the
value of your donated property are available in "A Donor's
