If you’re thinking of trading or selling a car, truck, van, motorcycle, trailer or boat, consider donating your vehicle to the Alzheimer's Association.

Your charitable donation helps contribute to our mission to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia — by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.

We partner with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) and the proceeds go to the Alzheimer's Association, supporting those impacted by Alzheimer’s disease while advancing crucial research.

Is my donation tax deductible?

The Alzheimer's Association is classified with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Donations to the Association 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.

Must my car work to donate it?

We can take your vehicle running or not. However, it must be in one piece, have an engine and be towable. Contact a CARS representative at 855.277.6CAR (855.277.6227) to find out if your vehicle qualifies for pickup.

How quickly will my vehicle be picked up?

You will be contacted within 24 hours to start the donation process.

If you need your vehicle picked up sooner, please call us toll-free at 855.277.6CAR (855.277.6227) as we may be able to make those arrangements.

Do I need the title to donate my vehicle?

Yes, you will need the title to the vehicle. If you do not have it, it is possible that other arrangements can be made. You can call us toll-free at 855.277.6CAR (855.277.6227) seven days a week for more information.
