ANY VEHICLE CAN HELP A NEIGHBOR IN NEED. If your vehicle can be repaired for less than $500 and will provide at least 2 years or 24,000 miles of reliable service it will be given to a neighbor in need. Usually the vehicle is less than 12 years old and has fewer than 150,000 miles. Your tax deduction will be the vehicle’s fair market value. Cars for Neighbors doesn’t provide luxury vehicles to neighbors in need as they can be expensive to maintain. We detail the vehicle and bring it to auction or a retail used-car business. * WHY DONATE? Your donation will directly benefit someone in our community who doesn’t have a working vehicle! All proceeds from donated vehicles and contributions toward our cause go to help low income neighbors in Anoka County with car donations and repair services. In order to receive free car repair or a car, individuals need to meet certain qualifications, and go through a screening process. IF YOUR VEHICLE ISN’T DRIVEABLE, WE’LL PICK IT UP! If your car isn’t running, we still want it! We’ll either repair it or use the proceeds to repair a client’s car. Just call 763.717.7755 to have it towed. MINIMAL PAPERWORK INVOLVED. We’ll need your title (sign only the front) and release of lien, if applicable. If more than one person is listed on the title, both must sign. If your vehicle can’t be improved cost-effectively it may be sold for parts or brought to auction with a minimum bid value. * A car intake form will be provided for you to complete. You’ll receive an offcial car donation receipt. We take other types of vehicles too! We’ll bring it to auction with a minimum bid value to assure it doesn’t sell for less than a fair price. * * Every vehicle donated to Cars for Neighbors is equally important. About 25% of our operating budget comes from the sale of vehicles. Proceeds allow us to repair more cars for low-income neighbors. Your tax deduction will be the selling price up to the vehicle’s fair market value. Please note that these are guidelines for how donations will be used. Cars for Neighbors evaluates each donation on a case-by-case basis. 763.717.7755 • @CarForNeighbors Cars for Neighbors • 1201 89th Ave NE, Suite 230 • Blaine, MN 55434
