Donate Your Vehicle
Did you know your unwanted vehicle can support CommunicationFIRST’s mission? We now accepts cars, trucks, RV, motorcycles, and even boats as an alternative form of giving. We handle all the heavy lifting. It’s easy! Simply call 1-855-500-7433 or submit a secure online donation form at https://careasy.org/nonprofit/communication-first. Our Vehicle Donation Support Team will contact you to complete the donation and confirm your pick-up information. In most cases, your vehicle pick-up can be scheduled within three business days once the donation record has been completed.
Receive a Donation Receipt. Vehicle donations are tax-deductible! An initial donation receipt is provided at the time of the pick-up. If the vehicle sells for $500 or less, donors are also mailed a thank-you letter within 30 days of the sale of the vehicle, which serves as a tax receipt. If the vehicle sells for more than $500 and the donor has provided their tax identiﬁcation number, an IRS Form 1098-C will be mailed to the donor within 30 days of the sale stating the amount of gross proceeds (the maximum amount of your tax deduction) received from your donation. For speciﬁc tax-related questions, please consult a tax advisor.
Donate Stock or your IRA Required Minimum Distribution
CommunicationFIRST now is able to accept tax-deductible charitable donations of stocks and bonds through Wells Fargo. Also, if you are 72 or older and have a retirement savings account, you can reduce your tax liability by donating all or a part of your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) directly from your IRA to CommunicationFIRST as a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). Please email [email protected] for the details if either of these options are of interest. Thank you!
