Donation Programs are Here to Stay
Reports of the demise of vehicle donation programs has been grossly overstated. After the tax law changes of 2005 the general prediction was that the vehicle donation volume would dry up to a trickle. While some programs have reported loss in volume of up to 40%, the charities with stronger brands and dedicated, results oriented marketing continue to grow in volume, revenue and net return per vehicle.
Year Round Ancillary Revenue
Vehicle donation programs provide a good source of year round ancillary revenue that doesn’t cannibalize other donations or contributions. A good vehicle donation program offers a valuable service to donors and can offer a solid tax deduction for qualified contributions.
More than just a charity donation program, these cars become a channel for responsible recycling of end of life vehicles. The automobile is the most heavily recycled consumer product. 94% of the ferrous material in the auto is recycled into new metal and approximately 67% of the steel produced in North America is made from recycled scrap. Charity vehicle volume has evolved into a steady source of low end vehicles for recyclers, dismantlers and secondary parts providers throughout the US. The more sophisticated the recycling industry has become the stronger this relationship has evolved.
