Donating your vehicle is an easy way to support Venice Arts!
To donate an automobile, trailer or boat, contact Liz Leshin, Development Director and she'll organize for your vehicle to be picked-up at your convenience and at no cost to you.
Here's how it works:
“Junker” cars: Venice Arts get $100 for every “junker” you donate, and you get a $500 tax credit.
Other vehicles: These are sold at a weekly auction.
Once sold, Venice Arts gets full value of sale, minus Riteway's (the Vehicle broker) fees. You get a tax credit for full value of vehicle sales price and, on all vehicles sold Venice Arts receives 100% of the net proceeds of sale.
How do I know how much I can claim on the tax deduction?
If the vehicle sells for more than $500, you can deduct the actual sale amount. A 1098C form including that amount will be mailed to you within 30 days of the selling date, which must be filed with your tax return. If the vehicle sells for $500 or less, you may deduct up to $500 with your receipt.M
