When considering what to do with your old car or truck, one often overlooked opportunity to assist your community is car donation. This is especially true when donating it to a trade school. Avoid the hassle of selling it online, getting it towed, or haggling with a dealership by donating it. It benefits not only the seller, but the lives of countless young adults. Here are some things to consider when donating your vehicle.
Any Make or Model Will Do
Most trade schools will accept any make and model of car, truck or SUV. Some trade schools will even take boats, RVs, and other recreational vehicles. Whether it be an older vehicle collecting dust in your garage or a heap of metal in a lot, most trade schools are happy to take your donations and may even help in towing the vehicle. Trade schools don't worry about the state of the vehicle as they plan to dissemble it and then repair it.
Another benefit to donating your vehicle to a trade school is the high probability that it is tax-deductible. Many trade schools are non-profit and strive to keep tuition low or free for its students. With their non-profit status, you can write your donation off on your taxes. This is a great benefit to look at as they tow your car away. Make sure to contact your accountant for further information and verification on the tax donation status.
Giving Young Adults More than a Job
With a vehicle donation to a trade school, you're not just donating money to a young adult, but giving them a future. Many trade school students come from low-income families, and many of these schools strive to keep costs as low as possible to assist students. Learning a trade in the automotive industry, can give these young adults future career opportunities. Making a difference in the lives of others is not about just giving them things, but teaching them skills that can sustain them and possibly their families for years to come.
There are a lot of choices when deciding what to do with your old car or truck. As you explore your options, don't forget the benefits of donating to a trade school. The good of the donation goes beyond tax benefits. A donation can influence the lives of young adults for the better, giving them a career, a trade, and a future.Share

After struggling for years at a traditional university, I realized that there were some serious issues with my study habits. I tried to change things, but I was too late to graduate, so I started exploring other possibilities. I began focusing on trade school, and before I knew it I was able to find a great school that offered exactly what I was looking for. They were really incredible to work with, and they even helped me to narrow down a career that I knew I would love. This blog is here to help other people to see the benefits of trade school.
