Vehicle Donations

We accept cars, vans, trucks, boats with a trailer, and recreational vehicles seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The Arc partners with Melwood Charity Car Donation Center, a non-profit agency, to manage and operate our vehicle donation program.  Melwood, since 1963, has provided job training and employment for over 2,000 individuals with disabilities.

Making a vehicle donation is as simple as filling out the online donation form .  Please make sure we receive the donation by making the selection for “I would like the proceeds of the sale of my vehicle to benefit:”  as KS The Arc of Sedgwick County.  You must be able to provide: the year, make and model of your vehicle, the general condition, the vehicle identification number, and have the title and lien in hand.

Benefits:

  • Free towing whether your vehicle is running or not.
  • You can donate your automobile from anywhere in the country.
  • Eliminates the hassle of repairing, advertising and selling your car—let our courteous, trained staff handle all the details.
  • Potential IRS tax deduction.

If you have any questions, please contact Mary Brown at 316-943-1191 or mbrown@arc-sedgwickcounty.org

How to Maximize Your Tax Deduction

Vehicle donations made to a charitable nonprofit organization are tax-deductible.  The best practice is to consult with a tax professional on how to maximize your tax deduction since every car donation and tax situation is unique.

In general, the IRS limits the tax deduction to the gross proceeds from the sale of the car, truck or other vehicle.  Charitable contributions must be itemized on Schedule A of Form 1040 to qualify.  If the total deduction claimed on the tax return exceeds $500, Form 8283 “Non-cash Charitable Contributions” must also be completed and attached.

To learn more about what a donors responsibilities are prior to making a car donation, please consult the “Donors Guide to Vehicle Donations” found in IRS Publication 4303.  This file may be read with Adobe Reader.
