Donate your car, truck, motorcycle, or other vehicle today!

When you donate a car, we’ll fix it up and either give it directly to program graduates and other members of the community in need, or sell it to support Mission programs and services. For many people, owning a vehicle is a huge step toward independence. Furthermore, it can save time and money for individuals and families coming out of poverty and homelessness, and provide stability and increased opportunities.

What Type of Car Can I Donate?

We accept vehicles in any condition. Cars, trucks or other donated vehicles that need moderate repairs are ideal, but we also accept cars that are not running and even some vehicles you may think are “junk.”

We have auto mechanics on staff who work alongside program participants to repair donated vehicles before we gift them to successful program graduates. Repairing donated cars provides an opportunity for New Life Program participants to learn practical job skills while providing needed transportation for program graduates.

Cars that cannot be repaired and/or gifted for any reason can still be used to support Mission programs and services, so please contact us with any questions.

Still wonder if your vehicle is good to donate? Don’t worry. Contact us today at 303.331.2938 to see how you can donate your car.

Benefits of Donating a Car

When you donate your car to Denver Rescue Mission, you’re providing independence and transportation to someone who has worked hard for months in one of our programs to overcome homelessness and poverty. For someone who has lost everything, your car could be the difference that helps them be able to keep their new job, care for their children, make it on time to necessary appointments, and more.

And you’ll benefit too! All donated vehicles, regardless of condition, are tax-deductible. So instead of junking a car for a couple hundred dollars, donate your vehicle to receive more value for your tax-deductible gift.

Your Vehicle Can Change Lives!

“My job during my stay at The Crossing was a mechanic for the Vehicle Program. I worked in the Shop for over a year and I have firsthand experience of the joy a vehicle can bring to a person’s life. Many people would break down in tears when they receive their vehicle.”
“My daughter and I are so grateful to have a reliable vehicle. We are members of a church and it is important to us to be active members but we were limited by transportation. Even getting to family events presented its challenges. It’s not easy asking people for a ride or limiting the time you can spend in one place because of public transportation. If I could convey one thing to the vehicle donors its, your donation makes a difference.”
“Writing the Thank You card to the donor was a great part of receiving my vehicle. It was so nice to be able to tell that person what their donation was going to do for our lives. It was approaching winter season and I remember being so overjoyed that my son and I wouldn’t be at the bus stop in the cold. I was also thrilled that I no longer needed to plan for a two hour commute as well.”
