Special Olympics Vehicle Donation Program

Want to get more mileage out of your old car before buying a new one? Donate that old ride to Special Olympics Massachusetts and help support year-round training and athletic competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities in your community and across the state.

  • Your contribution will help support year-round programming to Special Olympics athletes across Massachusetts or Connecticut.
  • You’ll be eligible for a tax deduction based on the value of your car.

Donating a Car to Charity: Tax Information

Upon pick-up of the vehicle, you receive a receipt that may be used to claim your charitable deduction on that year’s taxes. If your vehicle sells for over $500, you will be notified of the sale. In that case, you will receive appropriate tax documents in the mail containing the actual gross sale price of the vehicle.
