Awarding donated vehicles to families in need Your Donated Car Can Help New Englanders

When you donate a car in New Hampshire to Good News Garage, we assess your vehicle’s potential to be repaired; if it is in good shape then we award it to someone in the community. If it is not safe enough or is too costly to repair or maintain, then it is auctioned. The proceeds are then used to repair another car, which will be awarded to someone in need of reliable transportation.

Every donated car helps local families in need and donors always qualify for a sizeable tax deduction!

Since Good News Garage opened its doors in Burlington, Vermont we have provided more than 5,000 New England families with donated cars. Will you donate your vehicle and help more families access reliable transportation?

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Questions on Donating a Car in New Hampshire

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

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

How long does it take to donate a car? Path Created with Sketch.

The car donation process is fast and easy. Donated vehicles are typically picked up within three to 10 days after we receive the title, depending on where the vehicle is located. You can start your online donation here.
