How We’re Different

New England's original nonprofit car donation program, since 1996.

Good News Garage has provided over 5,500 New England families with donated vehicles!

Most car donation organizations sell 100% of the donated vehicles they receive, and they hire a for-profit middleman to handle the donation process.

Our goal is to award as many donated cars as possible to neighbors in need! We have been doing this important, life-changing work since 1996.

Donated cars help local individuals and families move forward in their lives, while donors receive free towing and a generous tax deduction (up to fair market value if the car is awarded to a family). And, local automotive businesses are utilized and communities are strengthened. Donating your car to GNG is a win-win-win!

Your charitable donation goes further at GNG!
