If you have an older car, truck, van, trailer, RV or boat taking up valuable space in your yard, garage, or driveway, consider donating it to support affordable housing in Greater Des Moines! Donations made through Habitat for Humanity’s Cars For Homes™ program can save you the time and energy of finding a buyer. Plus, proceeds from the sale of your donated vehicle will be used to help volunteers in the Des Moines area build Habitat homes. It is quick and easy to donate a vehicle whether it runs or not! You may also be eligible for a tax deduction

What vehicles are accepted for donation?

Cars for Homes™ accepts cars, trucks, boats, RVs and other vehicles with proper title and proof of ownership. As a general rule, if the vehicle is fewer than 12 years old, runs, has no major damage and no title or major mechanical problems, it is eligible. RVs, boats, motorcycles, older specialty vehicles or those in exceptional condition may be eligible as well.
GDM Habitat may also accept donations of late-model pickup trucks and cargo vans to use as construction vehicles. Donated construction vehicles must have less than 50,000 miles and be in good working condition. Trucks must have a full size, 4’ x 8’ bed. Cargo vans must be heavy duty and without side windows in the back. To find about more about donating a fleet vehicle to GDM Habitat, contact Clara Bergan at 515-471-8686 x145.
