Vehicle Donation FAQ's 

Your vehicle donation to Teen Challenge NorWestCal Nevada is another great way to help us help others towards recovery.

Teen Challenge NorWestCal Nevada can accept donations of cars, vans, trucks, SUV's, motorcycles, RVs, boats, travel trailers, and aircraft. We also accept donations of property. For a specific question outside of this list, you can call 888-339-3193.

Is my donation tax-deductible?

Teen Challenge is a 501(c)(3) organization so all donations are tax-deductible and receipts will be sent for your tax records. Congress has passed new laws about these tax-deductions. Please see IRS Publication 4303, "A Donor's Guide to Car Donations"

How much of the vehicle's value goes to Teen Challenge? 

 Every penny! There are no "middlemen" so 100% of your vehicle's value goes to Teen Challenge and our six residential recovery centers throughout the California and Nevada.

What do I need to do? 

We'd like the title to the vehicle. But, if you do not have title papers, email or call us anyway; other arrangements can be made in most instances. Fill out our vehicle donation form, and we'll be in touch with you about the next steps! 

Can I donate a vehicle that isn't running? 

Even if your vehicle hasn't run correctly in years, we can still take it! We can even tow your vehicle, whether it's working correctly or not! In most cases if the vehicle doesn't operate correctly we will make all the arrangements to pick it up at no cost to you. However, the condition of your vehicle does affect the fair market value of your donation. 

How do you determine the value of a donated vehicle?

We can refer you to IRS Publication which sets forth the manner in which the IRS requires you to determine the value of your donated property. You can review this publication on the IRS website right now. If your donation is worth more than $5,000 you will need an appraisal for tax purposes.

How long does it take to collect the donated vehicle? 

After you contact us, we can typically pick up your car within a few business days. If you need your vehicle picked up sooner, we can make the necessary arrangements. Once we have confirmed the scheduled pick-up date and time, we will also arrange the proper collection of your car, boat, truck, RV, or travel trailer.
