Donate Your Vehicle

Whether your vehicle is a late model sedan, a classic collectable, an unfinished project car or an old hoopdie gathering dust in the driveway, CRE will turn any vehicle into a valuable donation to help a family in need. We accept donations of passenger vehicles including:

  • Cars
  • Trucks
  • Tractors
  • Recreational Vehicles
  • Boats
  • Construction Equipment
  • Farm Equipment
  • Motorcycles

It is important to note that the Center for Research & Education is not yet a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, therefore the donation of your vehicle will not be considered tax deductible. Also note that a social security number is not required if your vehicle is sold to CRE for less than $500.  You can expect a receipt from us within 30 days from the time we pick up your vehicle.  Title is required.

What exactly happens to your cars?

Fixed and Shipped – If a vehicle is in mint or better condition or can be fixed by our mechanic(s), it is shipped to a large family in the developing world for transport or for taxi registration.  Our primary goal is to provide the head of household with a means to earn a living and so as to lessen dependency on charity. Please bear in mind that Tractors, Trucks, Farm equipment and motorcycles also provide lucrative means of employment in the developing world.

Vehicle auctions is the most profitable, efficient and cost effective way to liquidate donated vehicles. These auctions expose your vehicles to the greatest number of buyers which maximizes the sale price of each vehicle.  Those proceeds go to help poor families in the developing world.

Used Car Dealerships – Many donors provide late model vehicles that are excellent candidates for resale at used car dealerships.

Recycled – Some vehicles will cost more to transport than they are likely to sell for. This can happen when the vehicle is in exceptionally poor condition, when the donor is in a remote location or when market conditions are not favorable for donated vehicles. These vehicles will be sold to recyclers to incur monetary value.
