Donate Your Old Vehicle

Wondering what to do with your used car, truck or boat? Supporting Lumibility programs through the donation of a vehicle is easy, free, and you may be eligible to receive a charitable tax deduction.

Lumibility's vehicle donation partner, VehiclesforCharity.org, will pick up your vehicle, and transfer the title, all at no charge to you. Vehicles for Charity will process the sale of your vehicle and Lumibility will receive 80% of the net sale price. Vehicles for Charity will mail a tax receipt to you after your vehicle is sold, listing the amount Lumibility received for your donation.

Click on the button below to donate your vehicle in support of individuals with differing abilities through Lumibility. If you prefer to donate via phone, please call 866-628-CARS and let them know your donation will support Lumibility.

Monthly Giving

When you sign up to be a monthly donor in Lumibility’s Bright Futures Crew, your generosity changes lives all year round. You make a difference every day, from supporting early intervention for little ones with delays in our community to providing engaging and educational activities for adults with differing abilities. When families need support, Lumibility is here for them, thanks to you.

IRA/RMD Gifts

If you’re 72 or older, you may be able to use your Required Minimum Distribution from your Individual Retirement Account to make a charitable gift to Lumibility without paying any tax on the distribution! Here’s your advantage as a donor: Your charitable gift satisfies the minimum distribution requirement but never appears as income, nor is it taxed! Work with your financial planner to process RMD gifts to Lumibility.

Make A Stock Gift

A gift of appreciated stock generally offers a two-fold tax advantage: 1) you avoid paying capital gains tax on the increased value of the stock, and 2) you may be eligible to receive an income-tax deduction for the total fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift. Share this important information with your financial planner or tax advisor when considering donating stock to support Lumibility.

Planned Giving

By including Lumibility as a beneficiary of your will, trust, life insurance, or retirement plan, you will provide a lasting gift of support for individuals with differing abilities.

Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund, like a charitable savings account, allows you to recommend how much and how often money is granted to Lumibility and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants to make an immediate impact with Lumibility or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts. Speak with your financial advisor to learn more about adding a donor-advised fund to your portfolio for tax benefits and to support Lumibility programs and services.
