Do you have a car you'd like to get rid of? If you have a vehicle you no longer need, show your appreciation by donating it to a tax-exempt Veteran non profit. When you donate a car, automobile, pickup truck, recreational vehicle, fishing boat, motorbike, or jeep to Salute Veterans, you’re providing a helping hand to veterans and helping to provide access to resources and services for their separation from military service to non-military work.

Generally, car donations are sold at auction and the funds are used to assist veterans with essential services and resources.
