Frequently Asked Questions
There are many car donation programs on the internet making heartfelt appeals for vehicles, but only a small number of these programs actually make a difference to the charity. Special Olympics North Carolina offers complete transparency on where your car donation is going, who it’s helping, and how it’s going to get there.
We gratefully accept almost all car donations. We also accept donated trucks, motorcycles, boats, snowmobiles, trailers and RV’s on a case-by-case basis. You can donate your vehicle online or by calling us at (888) 828-0022.
Donating a car or other vehicle to charity can be a confusing decision. Many charity car donation programs promise to help the charities but are run by third-party processors that return very little to the charity. Our partners at Advanced Remarketing Services return 75-80% of the gross selling price for car donations back to Special Olympics, the highest of any vehicle donation program! View our tax questions page for more info on how to maximize your charitable vehicle donation.
Within 30 days of the sale of your vehicle, you will receive an email with a receipt that includes:
- The gross selling price of your car, if sold for greater than $500. If your car sells for $500 or less, you can deduct $500 or your car’s fair market value, whichever is less.
- Vehicle year, make, model, and VIN.
- A statement that the vehicle was sold at arms-length between two unrelated parties.
- A statement that no good or services were received in return for your donation.
