Vehicle Donation Program

Support our mission with a vehicle donation!

Your unwanted car, truck, boat, motorcycle, SUV or even plane can have a new purpose as a donation to The Lake County Community Foundation. Through our partnership with Charitable Adult Rides and Services (CARS), the process of making a charitable vehicle donation is quick, easy and tax deductible.

Vehicle Donation Process

Donate your vehicle to LCCF by completing this simple form. CARS will reach out to you to arrange the free pick-up of your vehicle donation, which typically can be arranged within 24-72 hours. You’ll receive an initial vehicle donation receipt upon pick-up, and then CARS will work to turn your vehicle into cash to support LCCF. Once your vehicle is sold, CARS will provide you any additional tax forms for your deduction.  If you have any questions, donor support representatives are available seven days a week to assist you.
