Support HDA’s efforts to provide high quality, affordable homes to East Kentucky families in need by donating a car or truck today! We accept and offer free, easy pick-up for cars, trucks, and vans that meet the needs of our programs and that will be most beneficial to us in serving the families of Appalachian Kentucky.
Vehicle donation occurs when the owner of a vehicle gives their no-longer-used car, truck, or van to a charitable organization (like HDA). Some charities sell the vehicle, but some nonprofits, like HDA, put the vehicle to use, especially if the vehicle is of acceptable quality and meets our needs. Whether it’s in perfect condition or has some miles on it, a used vehicle can still go a long way towards helping us bring our services to families in the hills and hollows of East Kentucky.
Plus, by donating a vehicle, you avoid the costs associated with selling it.
We also accept vehicle donations from local dealerships.
As a nonprofit affordable housing developer, we send our construction crews wherever they are needed throughout the counties we serve. Some of these areas are difficult to access, are located in rough and rugged terrain, and require travel on unpaved roads or roads that have fallen into disrepair. Due to our high level of production, we must routinely replace one to two service trucks each year. Additionally, HDA staff members, who must travel to and from work sites as part of our Volunteer Program, Hope Building Program, and summer internship, currently utilize a single company vehicle.
If you have questions about donating a particular vehicle, simply contact us! We’ll make the experience as smooth as possible. If we determine a need for the vehicle, then we can schedule a pickup time that’s mutually convenient.
Donation pick-up services are free. When preparing for your scheduled vehicle pick-up, please bring the title for the vehicle. If you don’t have the title, please bring the registration. We’ll also have a packet of DMV paperwork for you that will contain papers for you to sign. After signing, we’ll take care of the rest!
Also, since HDA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the donated vehicle is tax-deductible as a charitable contribution to the extent allowed by law. A donation receipt will be provided to you by HDA that will show the details of your contribution. Benefits will depend on your individual tax situation, so please be sure to refer to your tax advisor.
