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.

You must have your certificate of title, or for cars older than 15 years, a Bill of Sale, and the keys.

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

Many donated cars are repaired and provided to New England families in need. Donated vehicles that require excessive repairs or would be too expensive for our recipients to maintain are sold and the funds help to pay for repairs on vehicles that are more appropriate for a client. No matter what, your donated vehicle helps your neighbors in need!

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

Good News Garage will tow or pick up your vehicle free-of-charge from anywhere in Massachusetts. 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 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. 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.
