Frequently asked questions

Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN) gratefully accept almost all car donations. Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN) also accept donated trucksmotorcyclesboats, snowmobiles, trailers and recreational vehicles. Boats and planes may require a call to see if they meet minimum criteria.

Your vehicle does not have to be running, but it must be whole and have four inflated tires so it can be moved by our towing operators. You will be asked to explain the condition of the vehicle. In rare cases, Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN) is unable to accept a vehicle donation when the costs of transport and processing fees exceed the auction value of the vehicle.

Donating a vehicle to charity can be a confusing decision. Many charity car donation programs promise to help the charities, but are run by third party processors that return very little to the non-profit. With most vehicle donation programs, the charity typically receives between 15 and 35% of the gross selling price to fund their charitable mission. The rest is consumed by third party ‘fees’. Car Donation Wizard consistently delivers between 75 and 80% of the gross selling price for car donations back to Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN). We take our responsibility to bring the highest return back to the organization very seriously, and we are proud to run the most efficient vehicle donation program in the country. View our car donation tips for more info on how to maximize your charitable contribution.

If you itemize deductions on your income tax return, it may be possible to claim a tax deduction for your charitable car donation. In general, donors who itemize their taxes may deduct the fair market value of any donated car up to $499. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you may deduct the full selling price. For more information, please visit our Tax Questions section.

Our Car Donation Wizard will tell you what is required in your state. Most states require that you have a clear title to the vehicle; some states also require a notarized signature to complete a donation. If you cannot locate or have lost the certificate of title, Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN) can help you obtain the proper documentation.


Donate today so we can continue to provide resources and support for our military families. Together, we can make a difference.
