Have an unwanted car you would like to donate?
Have an unwanted car you would like to donate to support NataureTrack? The process is easy thanks to our new partner, CARS. They will handle the pick-up and sale of your vehicle plus all the associated paperwork. You receive a tax deduction for your donation, and NatureTrack receives a check for 80 percent of the net sale proceeds.
For more information and to schedule a pick-up that’s convenient for you, call 855-500-RIDE (7433) or click here to complete your donation online. Not sure? Call (805-886-2047) or send an e-mail to email@example.com to discuss what works best for you.
Yes! Individual tax situations vary so please check with a tax professional to determine how you may benefit.
The amount that is tax-deductible is the sale price of the vehicle. For more information on tax write-offs, we suggest you review IRS Publication 526 which sets forth the manner in which the IRS requires you to determine the value of your donated property.
Yes, the tow truck driver will issue a receipt at the time of pick-up. This is not your final tax receipt unless the sale of your vehicle does not exceed $500. This initial acknowledgment will indicate your name as well as the year, make, model and condition of the car you are donating. It will be your only receipt if your vehicle sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, an IRS Form 1098-C, Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes will be mailed to you within 30 days of the sale stating the amount of gross proceeds received from your car. This will be your tax receipt for your charitable contribution.
You will need the title to the vehicle, but if you do not have it, please call anyway. It is possible that other arrangements may be made. Please call 855-500-RIDE (7433) seven days a week for more information.
For states that require smog certificates or safety inspections, you may donate your vehicle without these documents.
Yes. We are able to accept most vehicles running or not. Exceptions include older vehicles whose value would not offset the cost of towing. Most vehicles need to be intact and in towable condition. To find out if we can accept your vehicle, please call 855-500-RIDE (7433) seven days a week.
Your vehicle will be towed away at a scheduled time convenient for you. The vehicle will be picked up by a licensed tow company at no cost to you and will be taken to a sale location.
CARS is able to pick up most vehicles in the continental United States.

I hope that all of the teachers at my school will get their kids out into the woods with this program, as I am confident that it is precisely this type of experience that helps kids get excited about science and to cultivate a real respect and reverence for the natural world. This respect is key so that they are able to fulfil their responsibility as future stewards of our planet’s fragile resources and open spaces."
