Car Donation Process

All vehicle donations to Purple Heart Cars are tax deductible and benefit local programs that provide services to wounded and disabled veterans. The entire car donation process breaks down to three easy steps.

1. Contact Us

There are two ways to contact Purple Heart Cars.

2. Schedule the Vehicle Pickup

Once we have your car donation information, one of our towing companies will contact you to schedule a convenient date to pick up your vehicle for free. When the towing company arrives to pick up your donated vehicle, they will also pick up the title and keys for that vehicle.

If you are not going to be home when the vehicle is picked up, you will need to advise the towing company of specifically where in the vehicle you will be leaving the title and keys. The towing company will leave you a towing receipt showing that your vehicle was picked up on behalf of the Purple Heart Car Donation Program.

3. Receive Your IRS Tax Deduction Receipt

Once Purple Heart is in possession of your donated vehicle and title, we will mail your IRS tax-deductible donation receipt. This usually takes 10-15 business days.
