Donate a Vehicle

Fuel Lupus Research

You can donate your car, truck, boat or RV to the Lupus Foundation of America and receive a tax deduction while supporting life-changing research.

To learn more, fill out this form and a representative from our partner organization, the Car Program LLC, will contact you within 4 business days.

They will handle the title transfer requirements and provide you with a tax-deductible donation receipt when they pick up your car. Once your vehicle is sold, they’ll mail an additional receipt to you if the gross proceeds are greater than $500.

Pick-up is available in every state and Washington, D.C.

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I donate?

We accept most cars, trucks, trailers, boats and RVs. If you have any questions about what you can donate, please call 1-800-240-0160.

Is my donation tax deductible?

The Lupus Foundation of America is recognized by the IRS as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization and your donation is generally tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Please note: new legislation went into effect on January 1, 2005. See IRS.gov.

If your donated vehicle is sold for more than $500, you will receive an acknowledgment letter for tax purposes, which contains the VIN, date of sale, gross proceeds of the sale and the date of your donation.

However, each individual's tax situation is different and we recommend that you check with a tax professional to determine the amount of tax benefit, if any, you may receive from your donation.

Before I donate what do I need to provide?

Besides the car, we would like the title to the vehicle. If you do not have it, call us anyway. It is possible that other arrangements may be made.

My car is inoperable. Can I still donate it?

Yes, most vehicles are accepted, running or not (exceptions include older vehicles whose value would not offset the cost of towing). To find out if we can accept your vehicle, fill out the online donation form.

Can you pick up vehicles in all 50 states?

It is possible to pick up most vehicles in the continental U.S. and Hawaii.

How do I get my car picked up?

Arrangements will be made to have your vehicle towed away at a time that’s convenient for you.
