Donate Your Car to Drive Change: How You Can Help Fuel Our Mission This Cartober

At Adoption & Beyond, we hold a steadfast belief that every child deserves to grow up in a loving, nurturing environment. For over 25 years, we’ve been dedicated to building healthy families through child-centered adoptions. Our mission is clear: to ensure every child finds a loving home.

As a nonprofit organization, community support makes a huge impact on our ability to provide comprehensive services to those who need them most. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our participation in the Cartober vehicle donation event this fall. When you donate your vehicle to Adoption & Beyond during the month of October, the proceeds from the vehicle’s sale go directly toward advancing our adoption advocacy work.

How We’re Using Cartober Donations to Further Our Mission

One car donation could mean thousands of dollars in support of our work. Here’s how the proceeds from your generous donation will directly impact expecting parents and adoptive families alike:

Supporting Expecting Parents

We stand by expecting parents through every step of their journey, from pregnancy to birth, placement, and beyond. Your contribution ensures that we can provide a safe, nurturing, and loving environment for their child. The funds raised will go toward essential resources, counseling services, medical support, and educational programs that empower expecting parents to make the best choices for their child’s future.

Guiding Adoptive Families

For those hoping to expand their families through adoption, your vehicle donation helps make this dream a reality. The funds generated will be used to provide comprehensive and compassionate guidance to adoptive parents. From home studies and legal resources to emotional support and post-placement services, your support enables us to assist adoptive families in navigating the intricate adoption process with confidence.

By participating in Cartober and donating your vehicle, you can ensure that every child finds the love and care they deserve.

Why Donate a Car: Paying It Forward

For many, the first car is like a repository for precious memories—a tangible reminder of exciting firsts and meaningful moments. When a car is around for so much of your life’s journey, letting it go can be surprisingly difficult—even when you know it doesn’t support your needs anymore.

One of the beautiful things about the Cartober donation event is that it allows you to say goodbye to that old family car in a way that commemorates the memories it represents. When you donate your car to Adoption & Beyond, it will go on to both serve a new owner and support our mission at Adoption & Beyond.

Not only will we help get your car in the hands of someone who can benefit from it—just like you did—but we will use the proceeds from your donation to support families who are in need of our adoption services.

Maybe you’re looking to part meaningfully with your old vehicle, or maybe you’re just looking to avoid costly repairs, downsize your vehicle collection, or save yourself the time it takes to sell a vehicle for what it’s worth.

Regardless, donating the vehicle can help you do that with ease, while also making a lasting impact. Whether it’s a truck, motorcycle, RV, boat, or even a plane—and whether it’s in new condition or not running at all—you can get it off your hands in a couple of easy steps.

How the Donation Process Works

Donating a vehicle is completely free, quick, and uninvolved. Here’s how it works:

    1. You complete an online donation form, which takes less than 5 minutes. Our vehicle donation partners will be available seven days a week and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
    2. Our donation partners schedule your free pick-up. We’ll arrange to have a licensed tow company pick up your vehicle at a convenient time and at no cost to you. When the driver arrives to tow your vehicle, you’ll be provided with a donation receipt for a tax deduction.
    3. We receive the funds from your vehicle’s sale, working to get the highest return both for your tax benefit and to best support our cause. Within thirty (30) days of the sale of the vehicle, you will be mailed a thank-you letter, which also serves as a donation tax receipt.

As we strive to create loving homes for children, we invite you to join us this Cartober and through the end of the year (and all year long). To learn more and to start the simple donation process, visit our donation page. Together, we can drive positive change and ensure that every child’s adoption journey begins in a loving and supportive way.
