Aug. 4, 2009 - PRLog -- Car donations are riding the wave created by the Cash for Clunkers program. Cars 4 Causes® the charity that gives to charities®, reports that its car donation calls are up, seemingly in response to the heightened awareness of car recycling and of current great deals being offered on new (and used) car sales.

“Oddly enough," says Pat Jessup, president of Cars 4 Causes®, car donations are up this month. “In fact,” she adds, “because of the increase in donations, Cars 4 Causes® has staffed up to handle the incoming calls.”

The explanation for the increase is not immediately apparent, Jessup adds. But conversations with car donors have revealed that at least some of them have been spurred into action by all the talk around car recycling and the good deals to be found on new cars.

“Once the conversation about trading in or up or donating a car gets going,” says Jessup, “the car owner begins researching possibilities, looking into tax deductions versus cash for the trade-in. Also, some have found that their car does not qualify for the Cash for Clunkers program, but while researching, they discover the tax advantages of donating a vehicle. Then they call us.”

Cars 4 Causes® takes care of almost everything required in a car donation, from towing the vehicle to processing the paperwork to getting a check into the hands of the charity chosen by the car donor. With additional staff on hand to walk car donors through the donation process, Cars 4 Causes® is helping car donors get their tax deduction, and it’s also helping charities receive donations – a special boon for the charities in tough economic times.

When car donors make their donations through Cars 4 Causes® [], they choose which charity will benefit. The list of choices is extensive, to date encompassing more than 11,000 charities, with additional qualified charities added every week.

Cars 4 Causes®, founded with the philanthropic mission of helping to fund youth education, has developed over the years into The Charity that Gives to Charities®, expanding beyond education and into one of the largest car donation charities[]  in the country.  Cars 4 Causes®, "The Charity That Gives To Charities"® is a non-profit, IRS Code 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

Cars 4 Causes® has been a trusted avenue for charity funding since 1997. Proceeds from tax-deductible donations of vehicles go to qualifying non-profits.
