Fast and Friendly Auto Donation Service
You can donate your used car, van, truck, boat with a trailer, or recreational vehicle and earn money for your AMBUCS chapter! We have partnered with Melwood’s Charity Car Donation Center to manage our vehicle donation program.
It’s easy! Call 1-877-3AMBUCS (1-877-326-2827) with the year, make and model of your vehicle, the general condition, the vehicle identification number, and have the title and lien in hand. Be sure to communicate who should receive the check (many charities use Melwood’s program). Melwood’s friendly operators will handle the rest. They will arrange a convenient time for free auto towing, and mail your tax form “Non-Cash Charitable Contributions” within four to six weeks.

Vehicle donations made to AMBUCS are tax deductible. Consult with a tax professional on how to maximize your tax deduction since every car donation and tax situation is unique. In general, the IRS limits the tax deduction to the gross proceeds from the sale of the car, truck, or other vehicle. Charitable contributions must be itemized on Schedule A of Form 1040 to qualify. If the total deduction claimed on the tax return exceeds $500, Form 8283 “Noncash Charitable Contributions” must also be completed and attached.
To learn more on what a donor´s responsibilities are prior to making a car donation, please consult the “Donor’s Guide to Vehicle Donations” found in IRS Publication 4303.
