Why you should donate your vehicle to DAV

Selling your vehicle can be such a hassle, and it may not seem worth it if there’s not a lot of value left. Instead of going through the extensive and time-consuming process of selling, donating your vehicle could provide many benefits. You may become eligible for a tax deduction, and you’ll also feel great satisfaction in supporting a good cause.

Why DAV?

1.    When you donate your car, truck, RV, or boat to DAV, it costs you nothing. We will come pick up the vehicle within 72 hours of the completed donation making this a quick and easy process. All you have to do is call 833-227-4328 or submit a form, let us know what time works best for pickup, and we’ll take care of the rest! These days, it’s much easier than trying to sell your vehicle. Plus, it’s much more rewarding.

2.    Your donation will directly fund DAV’s programs. These programs include: helping veterans navigate their benefits, setting up career fairs, providing rides to appointments, emergency relief, advocating for rights on Capitol Hill, and so many more. We strive to help all veterans at any age and any stage of life with visible and invisible wounds. Not only do we help veterans, but also their families and caregivers.

3.    Your gift will honor the sacrifices veterans have made for us. Every veteran is affected by service and may come back with health problems, employment issues, or struggle to access their benefits. The aid DAV provides couldn’t be done without you.

4.    DAV is one of the most trusted charities serving veterans. We have over a million members and have been serving veterans for over 100 years. We have also received a 100% charity score for impact and results and are a BBB accredited charity (meaning we meet all 20 charity standards).

“It is a great program and it allows a person to give back to a worthy cause. As a veteran, I understand the importance of this program and who it helps. This is the second time I have donated a car to DAV.” – Timothy B.
