Welcome to the Artworks vehicle donation page.
Artworks has partnered with Charitable Auto Resources, Inc. (CARS), a national program for the donation of vehicles to non-profit organizations. CARS represents hundreds of non-profit organizations such as WCMU Public Radio, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Cancer Support Community, and many local chapters of national organizations like the American Red Cross.
Donated vehicles can be cars, trucks, motorcycles, and also motor homes, boats and even airplanes. The vehicles do not have to be in working order (but special considerations may apply that can be discussed when contacted by the CARS representative).
The process is very easy. Fill out the CARS donation form at the bottom of this page. When you click Submit, your donation information will be linked directly to CARS.
Within a few days of submitting our form, you will be contacted by a CARS representative, or a towing company contracted by CARS, to schedule a pick up of your vehicle. You must have a clear title to your vehicle.
When you meet the towing company driver, you turn over your keys and signed title to the driver and CARS takes care of the rest.
Your vehicle will be sold, likely at auction, and ArtWorks will receive the proceeds of the sale according to the following formula:
- Say the vehicle sells for $5000
- The towing and auction fees are deducted from the sale, say $200
- The remainder, $4800 is split 70-30 (ArtWorks-CARS) and Artworks will receive $3360
After the sale, you will be contacted by a CARS representative by phone to complete final paperwork for your donation and tax-deduction statement. If the vehicle sells for over $500 (see FAQ’s), you will receive a 1098-C tax form from CARS. Keep this form for your tax records. ArtWorks will then follow up with a personal note of thanks for your donation once we are contacted by CARS.
If you wish to designate this donation for a special ArtWorks project, please call the Artworks Executive Director at 231-796-2420.
