It’s getting close to that time of year when we all think about reducing our tax burden. If you missed the chance last year, remember that Yellow Ribbon Vehicles can accept an auto donation year-round. Contact us early this year so you won’t feel rushed to donate and get your auto donation receipt before the end of the next tax year!
Why give an auto donation to Yellow Ribbon Vehicles? To help US Veterans! If you’ve got an old car hanging around, costing money in storage, insurance and/or repairs, auto donation can be a quick and convenient way to ease that headache. Instead of tasking yourself with writing up a listing, taking dozens of photos, posting an ad online, handling calls from buyers and haggling over price, let us get that old car out of your way.
Yellow Ribbon Vehicles is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization started by a United States Veteran, so we’re reputable and trustworthy. We’re dedicated to improving the lives of military Veterans and your auto donations help us get much of our funding. Enjoy peace of mind knowing your auto donation is going to a genuine charity that maximizes every dollar for the largest impact with our Veterans services:
Financial coaching/counseling, available one-on-one or in a group setting, this coaching helps Veterans responsibly manage their finances after serving. This may seem like common knowledge, but to a Veteran whose family situation has changed during deployment, it can truly make a difference.
Housing assistance and education to make home purchasing easier and reduce the homeless Veteran population.
Emergency financial assistance, for reintegrating Veterans after deployment.
Employment assistance and training to help Veterans find and retain employment.
An auto donation can make a big impact with US Veterans who have served our country. As a bonus, because Yellow Ribbon Vehicles is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, auto donations are tax deductible on your itemized tax return. Our goal is to maximize the value of your auto donation when it is sold through our network of auctioneers, so your charitable donation helps Veterans in the biggest way possible.
