Donate your Car

Donate your vehicle (Non-operational and non-smog certified vehicles are accepted.)

If you have a car, truck, SUV, motor home, motorcycle, snowmobile, jet ski, or boat that you would like to donate rather than sell or use as a trade-in, then we have the answer for you!

CASA of Mariposa County has an agreement with the Center for Car Donations that will benefit both you and the Court Appointed Special Advocates non-profit program. The Center is a reputable and reliable organization that assists charities with fundraising efforts and here is how it works:

1. You call the Center for Car Donations at (877) 411-3662.

2. Let them know that you want the proceeds from your vehicle to go to CASA of Mariposa County, California.

3. The Center for Car Donations will pick up your vehicle (same day pick-up available in some areas) and handle all paperwork at absolutely no cost to you.

4. Your vehicle will be sold and CASA will receive 75% of the sale price after towing, auction, DMV, and transportation fees are deducted.

5. The Center for Car Donations will send you a receipt for your charitable donation and any forms required by the IRS. This is a win/win program for you and CASA of Mariposa County. You are able to donate your vehicle hassle-free and receive a tax deduction, while we receive funds to provide mentorship and advocacy for abused and neglected children.
