AMH’s Vehicle Donation Program supports our mission of offering exceptional housing, educational opportunities, and access to health services for women experiencing crisis pregnancies and their children. By donating your vehicle, AMH will be able to convert your property to financial assets that support our wraparound services and programs that empower women in their journey towards independence. Whenever there is a need, we may also be able to provide your quality vehicle to a mother in our program, at no cost to her.
How to Donate
AMH accepts cars, vans, trucks, boats with a trailer, and recreational vehicles. Starting the donation process is as simple as filling out our online donation form.

How to Maximize Your Tax Deduction
Car donations made to a charitable nonprofit organization are tax-deductible. The best practice is to 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 “Non-cash Charitable Contributions” must also be completed and attached.
To learn more about what a donors responsibilities are prior to making a car donation, please consult the “Donors Guide to Vehicle Donations” found in IRS Publication 4303. This file may be read with Adobe Reader.
