What can I donate?
You can donate most vehicles to WRTI, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. Your vehicle donation will be sold at auction and a portion of the proceeds of the sale will come to WRTI. WRTI's Vehicle Donation program accepts donations in the Philadelphia and tri-state area.
How does the program work?
Please call 1-877-308-2408 to donate your vehicle. After your vehicle information is gathered, a partnering tow company will schedule a pick up. At the time of the pick up, the driver will give you a receipt . We ask that you give in exchange for the keys and your signed title.
How much revenue does WRTI receive from the donated vehicles?
WRTI receives 70% of the revenue generated from the sale of vehicles brought to auction, excluding fees.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes. WRTI is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, and donations may qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return.
What information do I need to provide in order to donate my vehicle?
The vehicle's title must be in your name. To assist in scheduling towing arrangements, information about the location and condition of the vehicle will be needed.
Do I pay for towing?
No, there is no charge for towing.
How long will I have to wait before my vehicle is picked up?
Typically, your vehicle will be picked up in two to four business days. The towing company will schedule the pick up.
What do you do with the vehicles?
The vehicles are taken to an auction and sold to the highest bidder.
How is the value of my vehicle determined?
The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you may need to fill out IRS Form 8283 "Noncash Charitable Contributions." We recommend that you consult your tax adviser with questions about your deduction.
