Homeownership is a big part of The American Dream. At Knoxville Habitat for Humanity, we are a proud partner with individuals and families who are living in substandard housing conditions who want a safe and comfortable place to call home.
Turn your old car into a new home.
That's exactly what you can do through Habitat for Humanity's "Cars for Homes" program. So far this year, KHFH has received more than $8,000 in vehicle donations.
When you donate to the “Cars for Homes” program, you will help Knoxville Habitat for Humanity build homes with families in need of affordable shelter. If you have a vehicle you no longer need, please consider donating it to “Cars for Homes.” Here is how the program works:
What can you donate?
- Construction or farm equipment
- Any other vehicle ― running or not!
How do I start the vehicle donation process?
Call Cars for Homes toll-free at 1-877-277-4344 or make your boat, truck, RV or car donation online. You will be asked to provide information about the vehicle you wish to donate, including the make, model, vehicle identification number (VIN) and current mileage.
Most vehicles with proper title information are accepted, unless the costs of processing and towing fees exceed the auction value of the vehicle.
What happens after my vehicle is accepted?
You will be given instructions for processing the vehicle’s title. If the title cannot be located, assistance is available. Your donated car is then assigned for pickup and sale. Arrangements are then made to have the title processed. You will be contacted to coordinate the vehicle and key pickup by a licensed and insured member of the national network of contractors who work for Advanced Remarketing Services, Habitat for Humanity’s authorized agent.
What happens after my vehicle is picked up?
Your vehicle will be sold through a national network of diverse venues on behalf of Habitat for Humanity. After the car has been sold, you will receive an acknowledgement letter thanking you for your support and providing the vehicle sale information. This letter may be used as a receipt for tax deduction purposes; additional tax documents will be provided when required by IRS regulations as a result of the sale value of the vehicle.
