Can you tell me some more about Today’s Veterans?

Today’s Veterans is an organization that is committed to meeting the needs of those veterans coming home from Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas of conflict. Our brothers and sisters, and sons and daughters are coming home from overseas and too often are forgotten. Many times, these veterans graduated high school and immediately enlisted to ensure our continuing freedom. They are now coming home from deployment and need our help. We understand that we alone cannot help every veteran that is coming home, but with your help, we will make a difference in our localities and across the nation. Thank you in advance for your car donation, and supporting our troops.

How do I donate my car to Today’s Veterans?

We have made the car donation process to Today’s Veterans as simple and pleasant as possible. To donate your car, please either complete our easy-to-use online car donation form or call one of our donation specialists who will walk you through the quick donation process. Once your donation has been initiated, we will pick-up your car in a timely manner and we will send you your IRS tax deductible donation receipt. To speak to one of our friendly donation specialists, please call 888.980.VETS(8387).

How does my donation help the cause of Today’s Veterans?

Once we receive your donated vehicle, we will sell your donated vehicle for the highest possible value. The proceeds of the sale will be directed to one of the many programs and organizations working to aid our veterans who need a helping hand, including our wounded warriors and Purple Heart recipients.

How is the value of my car donation determined?

The IRS allows the donor to determine fair market value of the car up to $500. If, however, Today’s Veterans is able to sell your donated car for over $500, the IRS allows you to claim the selling price as a higher deduction. As we manage each individual vehicle donation, we strive to achieve the highest possible sale price for each vehicle. If we are able to sell your vehicle for over $500, we will contact you and inform you of your new tax-deductible amount.

Does my car have to be running?

Absolutely NOT! We accept ALL car donations – whether running or non-running. Every donation has value to Today’s Veterans.

In addition to a car or truck, what else can I donate?

In most cases, you can also donate a boat, work van, conversion van, motorcycle, RV and even real property.

Once I finish donating my vehicle, how does it get picked up? Is there a tow fee?

Towing is free. One of our professional towing companies will contact you to schedule a date and timeframe to pick-up your vehicle at your convenience. Please have the keys and title (and any lien release) available for the tow company at the time of the scheduled pick-up.

Do I have to be home when my donated vehicle is picked-up?

No. If you desire for us to have your car picked up when you are at work or away, please inform the towing company of the specific location of the vehicle and where you will be leaving the signed title and keys. The tow company will leave you a tow receipt showing that your vehicle was picked up on behalf of Today’s Veterans. Please remember to remove your personal belongings and license plate on the day the vehicle is scheduled to be picked-up.

How long will it take to have my car donation picked up?

We work to pick-up your car at a time when it is most convenient for you. In most cases, we strive to pick-up your car within 48 to 72 hours after you have completed the car donation process. We can also expedite towing to pick-up your vehicle within 24 hours if necessary.

What documents do I need to donate my car?

All we need are the keys, title for the vehicle you are donating and a lien release or original termination statement, if there was ever a lien holder listed on the title. Please note, however, we will need you to sign your title on the signature of seller line. Please sign your name as it appears on the front of the title. If more than one person is listed as an owner on the front of the title, all listed persons must sign on the signature of seller line(s).

What areas do you service?

As our services are needed across the country, we service and accommodate car donations in all 50 U.S. states.
