When you donate a car, truck, boat or RV through Habitat’s Cars for Homes™ program, Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity receives 100% of the net proceeds of your vehicle donation. These proceeds are used to bring affordable homeownership opportunities to local families.
The process is quick and easy through Habitat for Humanity's official vehicle donation program. You can accomplish it online at Cars for Homes or with a toll-free phone call to 1-877-277-4344. If you donate an automobile or other vehicle, you may be eligible for a tax deduction.
- Proceeds from the sale of your vehicle help Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity build and renovate houses with families in need.
- You may receive a tax deduction if you itemize.
- Recycling your car saves energy and natural resources.
- Construction or farm equipment
- Any other vehicle ― running or not!
What happens to your donated vehicle?
Your vehicle will be sold through a national network of diverse venues on behalf of Habitat for Humanity. After the car has been sold, you will receive an acknowledgement letter thanking you for your support and providing the vehicle sale information. This letter may be used as a receipt for tax deduction purposes; additional tax documents will be provided when required by IRS regulations as a result of the sale value of the vehicle. 100% of the net proceeds from the sale are returned to Milwaukee Habitat to support our mission.
Junk vehicles donated to Cars for Homes are recycled, saving energy and resources. Recycled cars are sold to direct buyers and hulk haulers who prepare them for processing into recycled steel.
