Cars2Charities' Research on Orange County Donations

Posted November 15, 2015 by kumkum

Cars2Charities, the Orange County vehicle donation program, adds value to thousands of used cars donated to help support non-profit organizations.

Cars2Charities in Fullerton, California, has announced research that has analyzed the results of car donations in Orange County, benefiting both donors and the charities they support. The research, conducted using data collected from 2013 to 2015, demonstrated that the average value of “as is” cars donated to charities are 25 to 50 percent less than the cars that are improved by the Cars2Charities service. From their beginning, the company has developed a novel way of improving returns on vehicles donated to charities. The vehicle donation experts at the company help connect donors and their favorite charitable organizations by taking donated motor vehicles, refurbishing them, selling them, and giving that money directly to the vehicle donor’s charity of choice.

This process differs from other car donation servicing companies, which typically sell donated cars directly to auction houses for a fraction of their value. “By detailing and tuning up donated vehicles, Cars2Charities can typically add significant value to the vehicles,” says Edith Hamilton, Development Officer for the company. “Our method is a win-win; it benefits the donor, who can get a bigger deduction on taxes, and the charity itself, which gets more money to help fund its programs and services.” The average sale price obtained by Cars2Charities in Orange County on a typical vehicle donation is $2,366 after improvements: substantially higher than any other charity car program.

Cars2Charities accepts many vehicles, including cars, motorcycles, SUVs, trailers, and trucks. RVs, campers and golf carts are also accepted. The process begins by the donor arranging for the vehicle to be picked up. The company offers pickup broad-area pickup service, concentrating in California, Nevada, and Arizona. Next, Cars2Charities improves how the donated vehicle looks and runs, then sells it. The company handles all paperwork, from titling to tax receipts. This unique business model adds sizeable value to the donated vehicles, helping charities receive the maximum monetary value from the act of donating a vehicle.

Because the company sells the vehicle donations in Orange County for prices dramatically higher than other car donation servicing companies, tax deductions are maximized as well. The company has become the preferred car donation partner for dozens of charitable organizations that directly benefit from vehicle donations. “If you have family car that’s not worth investing in anymore, or any kind of recreational vehicle that’s gathering dust, our company can get the most value from it,” adds Edith. “The charities can continue their important work, donors can feel good about financially supporting these organizations, and at tax time, big deductions are possible.” To learn more about the company, visit
