CAR DONATIONS
Focus On Renewal (FOR) has joined the many non-profits which now accept donated vehicles. Donors and members of the community who want to support Focus On Renewal and get a receipt for their tax donation will now find it easy and convenient to do.  Vehicles including cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, snowmobiles, jet skiis and boats will be accepted, although some restrictions apply. Free pick-ups are available at your home, office or at repair shops. Cars do not have to be running in most cases and you will need to have a clear title. Donors will receive a receipt for their donation and IRS form 1098 B to use for their taxes. The new tax law allows the donor to take the value for which the vehicle sold as a tax deduction. To arrange to have your vehicle picked up, or to find out more information about the program, call our representative at 877-411-DONATE.
