A memorial gift is a special way to provide personal remembrance for a deceased family member, friend or colleague. Similarly, an honor gift provides a meaningful way to make a donation in the name of a person who is celebrating a special occasion (birthday, anniversary, graduation, etc.) Both demonstrate your commitment to providing a hand up to low income families in need of safe, decent and affordable housing. When making a memorial or honor gift, the person or family you designate is sent a notice of the gift and you receive an acknowledgement letter as a receipt.

A simple and easy way to donate unused vehicles
How do I start the vehicle donation process?
Call Cars for Homes toll-free at 1-877-277-4344 or make your boat, truck, RV or car donation online at www.carsforhomes.org.
You will be asked to provide information about the vehicle you wish to donate, including make, model, vehicle identification number (VIN) and current mileage.
Most vehicles with proper title information are accepted, unless the cost of processing and transportation exceed the vehicle's auction value.
What happens after my vehicle is accepted?
You will be given instructions for processing the vehicle’s title. If the title cannot be located, assistance is available.
You will be contacted to coordinate the vehicle and key pickup by a licensed and insured member of the national network of contractors who work for Advanced Remarketing Services, Habitat for Humanity’s authorized agent.
What happens after my vehicle is picked up?
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.
