    Hi.
    Has anybody made a recent car donation to a local charitable organization?
    Is there an organization you would recommend?
    How is the process?
    How do you determine the value for tax deduction purposes? Thanks.

    Try Purple Heart....they take cars, I believe. I’ve donated to them before.

    Several years ago, I tried Vehicles for change. The process was painless but the persistent follow-up emails asking for money were annoying.

    Last year, due to a weird set of circumstances, I donated a car to WETA. It was also painless and entitled me to free WETA streaming access for a year (the result of having donated more than $60).

    In both cases, they sold the car at auction and sent me the tax documents needed to claim the deduction. The deductible amount is what it sold for.
