Donate Your Vehicle—Make a Difference at ASU

Thinking about selling your car, boat, motorcycle, truck or other vehicle? Donate it to Arizona State University instead!

When you donate your vehicle to ASU you will be supporting the university you love; plus, you may receive a tax deduction when you itemize your return.

Here's how it works: Call our toll free number, 1-844-400-ASUF (2783) or fill out the web form and we'll take care of the rest, including pick–up, at no cost to you.

Once your vehicle has been sold, you'll be sent a receipt for your tax records, and the sale proceeds will be donated to ASU in your name. See our Frequently Asked Questions below for more information.

Car donation tax laws in effect as of January 1, 2005
Your vehicle donation is still tax deductible and will fall into one of these categories: 1. For low-value vehicle donations you can claim the fair market value up to $500 without any additional paperwork besides the receipt we will provide at the time of the pickup. 2. If you donate a car that is worth more than $500, your deduction will be limited to the actual sale price of your car donation. If your vehicle is sold, all proceeds will benefit ASU through the ASU Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity. You will be provided with a receipt stating the final sales price of your vehicle within thirty days of the sale of your donated car. We will work to get top dollar for your car donation.
