Donate a Vehicle

When you donate your car, van or other vehicle to the San Diego Rescue Mission, we consider it more than just an act of charity.

When you donate your car, van or vehicle to San Diego Rescue Mission, it is transformed into a “Vehicle of Hope.”

That’s because we find new homes for tax-deductible auto donations in San Diego, and we use the money raised to fund our critical programs. This means we can provide more meals, shelter and lasting hope to the men, women and children who need it most.

The Process is Simple!

Start by downloading our Vehicle Donation Form here.

When you are ready to turn your running or non-running automobile into an act of charity benefiting homeless neighbors in your community, please send your completed Vehicle Donation Form and a clear photo of the vehicle to: Zenaida Orellana at zorellana@sdrescue.org

After we receive your form, we will contact you to schedule a time to promptly pick up the donation of your car, van, or other vehicle* within 1 to 5 days in San Diego County. We then process the DMV paperwork and provide you with a receipt.

On behalf of those we serve, thank you for your generosity and for making your car a gift that changes lives.

*We can pick up cars, vans, or other vehicles, but do not accept motorhomes or boat donations
