How to Donate a Vehicle

Vehicle Donation
You may donate a vehicle to Santa Barbara Rescue Mission by clicking on the above link or calling the V-Dac toll free number. The V-Dac staff are available to help you with any of your vehicle donation questions and needs. You are entitled to receive a tax deduction equal to the sales price of the vehicle, if you itemize your deductions. If the vehicle sold for less than $500, you can deduct the “fair market value” up to $500. You will receive a tax receipt or IRS Form 1098C stating what the vehicle sold for within 30 days of its sale. It’s a creative way to offer help and hope to more men and women in need at the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission.
