What Happens When I Donate My Car?

When you donate your car to Habitat for Humanity, we will either sell it to a licensed dealer at a wholesale auction or take it to an auto salvage yard. Cars that are sold at auction are reused for transportation. Those taken to salvage are stripped of all reusable parts and then crushed, shredded, and recycled into steel.

This keeps a significant amount of steel out of our landfills and saves enough energy yearly to power around 18 million homes! Habitat for Humanity receives funds for each car donation. We receive more than 78% of the gross revenue generated from vehicle sales every month – all of which goes to support our work!
