Car Donation to the National Alliance on Mental Illness California

The range of mental illness is vast and more common than we think. Luckily, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is on it.

A grassroots organization of families and individuals, NAMI provides support, resources and leadership for those whose lives have been affected by serious mental illness.

Do you want to be a warrior for mental health? You can, with a car donation to NAMI California.

Why donate your car to NAMI California?

If you have a friend or loved one who struggles to maintain emotional stability, you’ve seen firsthand their need for patience and acceptance. NAMI advocates for individuals with a wide range of challenges, fighting to bring them respect, without stigma or discrimination.

It’s entirely possible you never even thought about financially supporting a program to help kids and adults with mental disabilities. And in the case of a vehicle donation to NAMI California, there’s no check-writing involved!
You need a place to send your old car, and the charity needs resources to keep providing for the manyfist blow power wrestling 163431 Californians who need support. It’s a complementary combo.

Do you ever wish you could wave a magic wand and create a climate where people with bipolar disorder or autism have a safe place to learn, grow and thrive? NAMI’s leadership provides advocacy for those who can’t verbalize their needs, in terms of legislation and policy development. The structure is in place to make those changes—but they need our support.

A car, truck or SUV donation to NAMI California through Riteway Car Donations gives us a way to do that.

Why donate my car vs. sell it?

So, you’ve decided enough is enough—no more loose knobs, torn seats and shaky steering. Or maybe you’ve already been car shopping. If so, congratulations!

Just a word to the wise: A dealer trade-in is not the way to go.

“What?!” you ask. That’s right—you’re losing money with that route. It’s not really news to say that dealers make sure they stay ahead of the game (a little like “the house always wins” in Vegas). But did you realize you’re only getting 30-40% of your car’s actual value?!

A study at USC’s Marshall School of Business found that dealers merely hike up the price of your new car to make up for the trade-in. Their research showed that buyers who traded in a car paid an average of $990 more than those who didn’t! https://www.marshall.usc.edu/news/consumers-beware

But if you donate a vehicle to NAMI through us at Riteway Car Donations, you’ll benefit from 100% of the selling price! And because your tax write-off is based on the sale price of your car, that’s another advantage—our process typically comes in way ahead of other sales totals. We make necessary improvements to your car before selling it, which usually brings in 25-50% more money—for NAMI and for your taxes.

If you’re a part of the environmental movement, you like green living. You can hardly find a bigger everyday decision to reduce your carbon footprint than moving to a hybrid or electric car. If you decided to do that, let us know and we can also “recycle” the car you no longer need.
