Habitat for Humanity of Southwest Montana is excited to announce that we are now embracing the Cars for Homes program. This is a great opportunity to make a donation to our affiliate. Not only will we receive a large portion of the revenue made from the sale of your vehicle, but you may also be eligible to receive a tax credit for the donation. So, how does it work?
Habitat for Humanity is very proud of the ease and efficiency of our Cars for Homes program. Many types of vehicles are accepted in this program: cars, trucks, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, boats, snowmobiles, farm equipment and construction equipment. To start the donation process, either call (877) 277-4344 or visit carsforhomes.org to submit the information on your vehicle. On the pickup date, a Habitat Agent will show up to haul your vehicle away and retrieve the title. Once you have signed the title over to Habitat for Humanity, you no longer own the vehicle and are not responsible for it. Then, Habitat will sell the vehicle through a nationwide network of auctions and direct buyers. After the vehicle has been sold, Habitat will send you a letter containing the vehicle’s sale information.
Vehicle donation is not only good for Habitat, it is also environmentally friendly. Recycling cars keeps a huge amount of steel out of landfills – enough to build nearly 45,000 steel-framed homes every year. The energy saved each year is enough to power approximately 18 million homes! If you have a vehicle that is no longer being used, consider donation. Every donation makes a difference and the families that partner with us are extremely grateful for your help.
If you do not have a vehicle to donate, but still want to contribute, there are many options. You can make a monetary donation or sign-up to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity SWMT in many different capacities. Volunteer opportunities include construction, ReStore work, community outreach, and others. As always, thank you forreading and being a part of the Habitat for Humanity community.
