America’s Christian Car Donation Ministry

How It Works

Donating your car to Jalopies 4 Jesus, is as easy as 1, 2, 3….

We also accept trucks, boats, RV’s, construction and farm equipment, motorcycles and more.


We accept cars, trucks, vans, fleet vehicles, trailers, boats (with trailer), motorcycles, and RVs, construction and farm equipment and real estate. If you have any questions about what you can donate, please call us at 1-833-FOUR-HIM (1-833-368-7446)

Yes, vehicles donated on this site are tax deductible and benefit the many charities we support

In most cases we will need the title to the vehicle. However, call us even if you do not have the title papers; other arrangements can sometimes be worked out. You may contact us by calling us at 1-833-FOUR-HIM (1-833-368-7446)

Your car donation to an IRS approved 501(c)(3) charity is still tax deductible and will fall into one of these categories:

  1. For vehicles sold for under $500, you can claim the fair market value up to $500.00 without any additional paperwork.  The preliminary tax receipt will be mailed to you after vehicle sale has been completed. 
  2. If the gross proceeds from the sale of your donated vehicle exceed $500.00, your deduction will be limited to the actual sale price. You will also be asked by the donee organization to provide your Social Security for the purposes of completing its IRS Form 1098-C form.

We will provide you with a receipt stating the final sales price of your vehicle within 30 days of its sale

At no cost to you, we will arrange to have your vehicle towed away. We can pick it up at your home or choice of location – at a scheduled time that works best for you.

Jalopies 4 Jesus is a program of Car Donation Foundation, a federally registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. You receive a tax deduction for the total amount that your car sells for. See here for tax information.

Jalopies 4 Jesus thanks you for your generosity and truly appreciates your donations. While the costs of turning donated vehicles into cash are high compared to other forms of charity fundraising, Jalopies 4 Jesus is committed to maximizing each car donation for each of our charities.

The amount that your vehicle ultimately sells for is based upon its make, year, mileage and condition. These are sales proceeds from your vehicle, we also have normal expenses involved in directly promoting the car donation program (advertising) and costs involved in turning your donated vehicle into cash (towing fees, auction fees, administrative costs).

Car donation programs have higher costs to promote and operate, compared to other forms of charity fundraising. If you are concerned about giving 100% of the value of your vehicle to a charity, the best way to do so is to sell your vehicle and directly donate your sale proceeds to your favorite charity.
