100% of your donation stays with VOA. No wonder we’re Washington’s most used place to donate an old car to charity
At Volunteers of America Western Washington, we don’t send your money to charity -- we are the charity. When you donate car, Washington we don’t send money to people who feed the homeless or run women’s shelters -- we run them ourselves and have for over 114 years. That is a noticeable difference between Volunteers of America Western Washington and any other charity car donation program. It is also the reason why we are able to put a much higher percentage of your donation to use helping the people that need it most – 100% of every donation stays with VOA, and we use an industry leading average of 88 cents of every dollar to run local programs that help people.
Making a donation to a charity car donation program is an act of kindness. But before you donate your vehicle, you should ask any car donation program exactly how much of your donation will go to struggling people. At Volunteers of America we spend an average of 88 cents of every dollar we raise on programs that help men women and children get the help they need. Unfortunately, many car donation programs spend more on PR, advertising and management than helping people. More than one so-called charity car donation program was created for the profit of the people who manage it, not the people they claim to help. So it pays to do a little research to make certain when you donate car, charity program or not, it does the most good. Effective local programs are what make Volunteers of America the most used place to donate an old car to charity in Washington and beyond.
