Donating your car, SUV, truck, RV, motorcycle, boat, or other vehicle is a great way to support Hiller Aviation Museum! The funds from your donated vehicle support museum exhibits and educational programs that inspire over 108,000 visitors each year, including 57,000 children who visit the museum with their school or family.
The Museum has partnered with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) to make the process of donating your vehicle as seamless and pleasant as possible. In most cases, your vehicle can be picked up within a few days.
How your vehicle is remarketed is particularly important in terms of how much you can deduct for your donation. Your deduction is now based upon the actual selling price of your vehicle or a standard $500 deduction, whichever is greater.
