New Partnership Announcement: CanadaHelps and Donate A Car Canada

Posted on

In another step towards giving Canadians the opportunity to diversify the ways they donate, we are thrilled to announce our new partnership with Donate A Car, a company that makes it easy for individuals to donate their used vehicles to charity since 2003. This partnership is a significant step forward in our mission to make charitable giving more accessible and convenient for Canadians.

Charities across the country will benefit greatly from this partnership, with the proceeds from the sale of a donated vehicle going towards a charity’s mission and programs. Our partnership will also make a difference in the lives of those in need while allowing us to declutter our own lives and honour the many emotional experiences vehicle ownership brings.

The process is simple:

  1. Donors can submit a donation form to see if their vehicle is eligible to donate through the Donate A Car program.
  2. Within the donation form, donors can choose from any of Canada’s 86,000 registered charities to support. 
  3. Schedule a towing appointment or drop your vehicle off at Donate A Car’s selling agent, who will sell or recycle your car with integrity and in an environmentally friendly way. 
  4. Your chosen charity receives the net proceeds from your car sale and you receive a charitable tax receipt. All easily disbursed and receipted through CanadaHelps.
  5. After that, there’s just one thing left to do: celebrate your meaningful donation!

Whether it’s a car, truck, boat, RV, vehicle with cosmetic damage or one that no longer works, Donate A Car accepts it all as long as the parts are intact. As a bonus, you don’t have to worry about paying for your vehicle to be towed, Donate A Car will handle the logistics and coordinate a vehicle pickup at a time convenient for you within 48 hours of receiving your donation application!

The benefits of donating your vehicle are endless. 

1. Fight climate change with a vehicle donation

By donating a used car, individuals can help to reduce the number of cars on the road, which in turn, reduces the carbon footprint and promotes sustainable transportation.

2. An intentional way to honour loved ones with an estate vehicle donation

Our vehicles often hold many memories of our loved ones. Donating an estate vehicle to a charity or cause close to your family is a meaningful way to honour your loved ones.

3. Save time and let go of the hassle of selling your vehicle

Selling vehicles can often be very time-consuming and stressful. Donate A Car’s streamlined process handles all of the logistics around selling or recycling your vehicle, so you can save time and money.

4. Reap the tax benefits of a vehicle donation

This partnership will allow you to easily receive a tax receipt for the net value of your vehicle after the donation is made. Discover your potential charitable tax benefits from a vehicle donation through our charitable tax credits calculator and Donate A Car’s tax receipt guidelines

5. Enjoy convenience and peace of mind: Donate A Car donations powered by CanadaHelps

Donate A Car uses CanadaHelps to disburse the proceeds from your car to the charity of your choice and to provide you with a charitable tax receipt. Trusted for over 23 years by Canadians and charities alike, CanadaHelps is connected to every registered charity and quickly and efficiently deposits over 97% of donations directly in the charity partners bank account, with the remainder delivered by mail. 


We encourage all Canadians to consider donating their used vehicles through our partnership with Donate A Car. It’s an easy and convenient way to give back and make a difference, while also being eco-friendly. We look forward to working with Donate A Car and seeing the positive changes that this partnership will bring.
