JumpStart – Wheels to Opportunity

We invite you to learn more about our JumpStart Car Ownership Program – the remarkable car ownership

program that is helping low-income families to literally “drive out of poverty”.

Since opening its doors in 2000, JumpStart has helped over 500 families purchase affordable and reliable vehicles. Each
one of these cars has changed a life!

Donate Your Car
& Help Local

If you are thinking about trading your car for a newer one, or if you have a car that you are no longer using, consider donating it to our JumpStart Program.

JumpStart assures that your car donation benefits local families. And as a non-profit car

program, the new tax laws still allow us offer you the highest tax donation value — up to FAIR MARKET VALUE.

Unlike the vast majority of car charity programs, JumpStart is able to either repair and use donated vehicles to directly help families, or to use the proceeds from car sales to purchase and provide more reliable vehicles.

This means that you will receive the highest available tax deduction and be assured that your donation helps meet the needs of local families.
