Frequently Asked Questions

What you need to know about donating your car in Massachusetts

What do I need to donate my vehicle to Good News Garage in Massachusetts? Path Created with Sketch.

All you need is the car’s certificate of title and the keys!

What will happen to my vehicle after I donate it? Path Created with Sketch.

We inspect every donated car to see if it can be repaired and awarded to a neighbor in need. Donated vehicles that require excessive repairs or would be too expensive to maintain are sold at an auction. The sale of cars at auction provides critical funds to help pay for repairs on vehicles that are more appropriate for a client. No matter what, your donated vehicle helps your neighbors in need!

Did you know that most car donation charities sell 100% of the donated cars they receive? Our goal is always to repair and award donated cards back to people in our community working to move forward in their lives.

Will Good News Garage pick up my donated car in Massachusetts? Path Created with Sketch.

Yes! Good News Garage will tow away or pick up your vehicle free-of-charge from anywhere in Massachusetts or nearby states. We will work with you to schedule a time for pick-up that’s convenient for you.

Is my car donation tax deductible? Path Created with Sketch.

Yes! Good News Garage is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and is one of the few car donation charities in the country that can offer a fair market value tax deduction if your donated car is awarded to a family in need. This can mean hundreds, even thousands more in tax deductions than other charities can offer. To learn more, read our blog post, “How do vehicle tax deductions work?”

You can find more information about vehicles as charitable donations in the IRS publication 4303 “A Donor’s Guide to Vehicle Donation.”

We encourage you to speak with a tax preparer to fully understand your tax deduction before donating.
