For children with heart disease, life is not the same as it is for their friends. They can’t run and play or participate in a lot of the same activities as other boys and girls their age. But for kids who cope with the unfairness of a chronic illness, there’s a place where they can experience nature, climb rock walls – even try a ropes course.
Camp del Corazon is a free opportunity for kids with congenital heart disease to have a camping experience they can’t find elsewhere. When you donate a car to Camp del Corazon, you send more pediatric patients to free summer camps on Catalina Island through the amazing program.
Have you wanted to focus on making your life meaningful, offering what you can to those in need? It’s nice to have an opportunity to feel the satisfaction of helping others without dipping into your bank account!
A vehicle donation to Camp del Corazon through Riteway Charity Services sends resources to enable kids with cardiac disease to attend the 5-day camp for free. Did you know that children with congenital heart disease are the most underserved pediatric population in the country? And the cost to send a child to camp is approximately $1,200. Camp del Corazon provides more than 300 kids each year the chance to spend the week on Catalina Island, plus dozens of volunteers – when you do the math, you see the needs are great.
If your vehicle is giving you trouble, or there are features you want to have, like a collision avoidance system or high-resolution touch screen, you can also benefit these kids by donating a car to Camp del Corazon. Do you find yourself perusing AutoTrader in your spare time? If you’re a classic car collector or just drive from point A to point B in commuter traffic, there comes a time when you have to replace your machine.
The car site Edmunds.com has an article suggesting that, despite the fact it’s often a good financial decision to hang onto the car you have, there are circumstances where the opposite is true. When you spend as much at the mechanic as you would on a car payment, you may as well be sitting at the wheel of something shiny and new!
Do you want to live “greener”? There are so many Electric Car Charging Stations now that it’s finally reasonable to consider a Chevy Volt or a hybrid (which almost every manufacturer has these days). Whatever the reason, you need a new car, so you’re stuck with the job of finding a new home for the vehicle you no longer need. With a car or truck donation to Camp del Corazon, it’s a win for you and for the kids!
You’ve always been responsible, and you want to know your tax situation has the best possible outcome. Bravo!
We’ve got good news for you ... when you donate a car to charity through Riteway Charity Services, you maximize the benefits! Our special process includes an assessment of your vehicle, and necessary alterations, which typically raises the sale price of a car by 25-50%. And you know that your write-off is based on the final sale price, which means – you get a higher deduction and Camp del Corazon gets more money.
Your CPA will applaud your decision. Of course, even if you do your own taxes online, it’ll make you smile to input those figures on Turbo Tax.
Have you seen the report by the United States General Accounting Office about car donations? Calculated for the U.S. Senate’s Committee on Finance, estimates show that tax deductions for donated vehicles were claimed on about 733,000 tax returns, which lowered taxpayers’ income tax liability by approximately $654 million.
