Vehicle Donations

What is the Bethesda National Vehicle Donation Program?

Bethesda’s Vehicle Donation Program provides an alternate opportunity for you to donate to Bethesda. It offers a tax-deductible way to dispose of unwanted vehicles in almost any condition.

Your donation to the program supports Bethesda's mission to enhance the lives of people with developmental disabilities through services that share the good news of Jesus Christ. Your generosity ensures the people we support are able to pursue their life goals and dreams, and live the lives they want.

Making a vehicle donation is easy for donors. From start to finish, the process averages about 30 days. There are three simple steps:

1. Contact Us

Contact Bethesda’s partner, Insurance Auto Auctions (IAA). Fill out the online form or call the toll-free 24/7 donation line, 1-800-269-6814.

2. Easy Pick Up

IAA will pick up your vehicle at the most convenient time for you – at no cost to you!

3. Receive Tax Acknowledgements

You will receive an acknowledgment letter that can be used as a receipt for tax deduction purposes, and the vehicle will be sold. Upon sale, additional tax documents may be provided when required by the IRS.
