No Longer Bound’s Cars4Recovery directly supports men in recovery, as well providing valuable training opportunities to prepare these men for new careers. Repaired vehicles are sold or donated through other charitable outlets. Men learn basic mechanic skills and minister to the community by providing affordable transportation to those in need. We accept donations of automobiles, boats, motorcycles, RV’s, trailers, and anything else on wheels. One hundred percent of all proceeds benefit men in recovery.
We will gladly arrange the pickup of the donated vehicle as well as handle all of the necessary receipts and IRS paperwork. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, we can ensure that you will be qualified for a full tax deduction on your donation.
If you are a church or other charitable organization that is not equipped to process automobile donations, consider No Longer Bound as an outsourced provider for vehicle donation services.
No Longer Bound relies on tax-deductible donations of all types of vehicles to support addiction recovery for the men in the program.
We also offer free local pick-up. Please contact us to schedule a pick-up.
According to IRS publication 526, the following rules apply to any donation of a qualified vehicle. A qualified vehicle is any motor vehicle manufactured for use on public streets, roads, and highways, a boat, or an airplane. If you donate a qualified vehicle to a qualified organization and you claim a deduction of more than $500, you can deduct the smaller of the gross proceeds from the sale of the vehicle by the organization or the vehicle’s fair market value on the date of the contribution.
By donating your vehicle to No Longer Bound you can take advantage of the two exceptions to these rules.
The first exception states that if No Longer Bound makes a significant intervening use of or material improvement to the vehicle before transferring it, you can generally deduct the vehicle’s fair market value at the time of the contribution. By utilizing our auto shop program at No Longer Bound, we make significant improvement in the majority of cars that are donated before we sell them. Thus, our auto shop program allows you to maximize your tax deduction.
The second exception states that if No Longer Bound gives the vehicle, or sells it for a price well below fair market value, to a needy individual to further the organization’s charitable purpose, you can generally claim a deduction of the fair market value at the time of the contribution. Many of the vehicles donated to No Longer Bound are sold to program graduates trying to start over after leaving No Longer Bound or to one of the many needy families in our community. Again, your automobile donation to No Longer Bound can maximize your tax deduction.
