The Value of Vehicle Donation


There are a lot of ways to support the Boy Scouts of America. But not many people realize one of them may be sitting in their driveway.


Through a partnership with Insurance Auto Auctions Inc. (IAA), the Scouts can turn donated vehicles into funding that drives the organization’s mission. From cars to motorcycles and RVs to ATVs, every donation is support that helps today’s youth become tomorrow’s ethical, moral and responsible leaders. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it benefits a great organization while providing you with a valuable tax deduction.

How does vehicle donation benefit the Boy Scouts of America?

Every vehicle is auctioned by IAA, which sells it to a global customer base and returns the proceeds to the Boy Scouts of America. This provides the most profitable, efficient and cost-effective way to turn a donation into valuable funding.


Which vehicles are eligible for donation?

In short, everything. Cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, ATVs, snowmobiles, boats, jet skis, and farm and construction equipment—every vehicle has value, regardless of its condition.


What do I need to do to donate?

We handle as much as possible to make it easy to support the Scouts. Just fill out the donation form (LINK TO https://onecarhelpsscouts.com), and we’ll pick up the vehicle and send you a receipt for tax purposes after it’s auctioned. That’s it.


Those are the questions we encounter most often regarding our vehicle donation program, but we certainly understand if you have a few more. Get all the answers you need at www.1car1difference.com/faq.php
