Donate Your Car

Interested in donating your vehicle to an organization you believe in? It’s easy to make a contribution that supports the Trail at Lady Bird Lake!

Here’s how it works:

  • Just call Toll-Free 1-877-95-TRAIL (1-877-958-7245) or email at your convenience to speak to a Vehicle
    Donation Representative. The Representative will schedule a pickup that’s convenient for you, and provide you with confirmation of your donation.
  • If the gross proceeds from the sale of your donated vehicle are $500 or more and if you provide your social security number to the Representative at the
    time of your donation, you will also receive an IRS tax form 1098C stating the sale price of the vehicle. This amount is what you actually claim on the
    itemized tax return.
  • According to the tax law effective January 1, 2005, if the claimed value of the donated vehicle exceeds $500, the taxpayer is limited to the gross proceeds of the sale.
  • If you have any questions, please contact us.
