Adopt-A-Bike, Bikes for Kids for the Holidays

For every $75 in donations, a deserving child will receive a new (or refurbished) bicycle, a CPSC certified helmet, a bicycle lock.

 

We began by adopting one school in Washington County to receive this valuable bicycle gift set!   2016 three schools will be selected .As the program grows so will the amout of schools and children that can receive bikes.

 

School staff selects the children to receive the bikes.  Past criteria set up by the schools have been improved attendance, writing contest, homework being turned in on time.

 

Washington County agencies such as DHS (Dept. of Health Services), Adelente Mujures, Big Brothers Little Sisters reach out to us during the year to help with individual cases of a child in need of a bike. Many of these cases, bikes are needed as a form of transportation rather than that of a toy. 

 

Any amount can be donated and will be pooled together.

 

 Use the secure Donate  button at the top of this page's left navigation after choosing "Adopt-A-Bike" from its drop-down button.  

 

If you wish to make a donation in person, visit the shop, address on the left.  And as always, if you have any questions please contact us

Donate a bike!

If you have an bike you would like to donate, we invite you to do so!  Your donation will help us continue our efforts towards improving cycling in Washington County.  

 

We carefully evaluate each donated bike. Durable bikes in good condition are cleaned and tuned up. Some go to eligible youth and adults in our community programs. Kid's bikes are in particular demand because they may be used in the fleet that we maintain for our youth education programs.  Kid's bikes also are given needy children as a part of our annual "Adopt-A-Bike" program.  Bikes not needed for our core programs are refurbished and sold in our retail shop with the proceeds benefitting our non-profit mission. Bikes in poor condition are carefully dismantled and usable parts are salvaged. Unusable bikes and parts are carefully recycled.

 

We have given away over 400 bikes to date and recycled tons of metal and rubber thanks to your contributions! Thank you!

 

How to donate?

 

You can bring a bike to our retail shop during posted business hours (check here for current shop hours). Or check our Facebook page for public bike donation events.

How It Works

  1. Takes any vehicle, anywhere, running or not
    We accept any kind of vehicle: cars, trucks, motorcycles, RV’s, boats, airplanes, heavy equipment, farm machinery, etc. No smog certificate is necessary and we can solve almost all title issues. We have contracts with over 3500 tow companies, auctions and recyclers, nationwide, so we pick-up anywhere in the country, with very, very few exceptions. If you have a unique item, please call our toll free number, so our experts can address any special issues.

     
  2. Free: No Costs to you or the non-profit.
    There is no cost to the donor or to the charity. All expenses are deducted from the gross sales price and, if the costs ever exceed the price, the V-DAC covers those costs.

     
  3. Quick Pick up
    We are happy to arrange a “Quick Pick-up”. Our normal pick up schedule is within a few days of receiving the paperwork you mail in. You will receive a call from our tow service to arrange a convenient time. You do not need to be there. It usually takes 45-60 days from the time the vehicle is picked-up until the entire process is complete and the net cash proceeds are delivered to your non-profit. The agents at our call center keep track of the timing and status of the vehicle in the sales process and are available to give status updates to charities and to donors.

     
  4. By Internet or Phone
    Most donors (80%) prefer to input the vehicle and pick-up info on our website. Just click on Donate Now, or you can call 877-999-8322 and our trained Service Center Staff will walk you through the donation process.

     
  5. Tax Benefits for you
    You are entitled to receive a Tax Deduction equal to what the vehicle is sold for by the charity if you itemize your deductions. If the vehicle is sold for less than $500, you can deduct the fair market value up to $500. You will receive a tax receipt stating what your vehicle sold for within a few days of the sale of your vehicle. Call the toll free donation number if you need another copy of this receipt. See Tax Information below for more thorough information.

Tax Information

  1. Donors are entitled to receive a Tax Deduction equal to the sales price of the vehicle, if they itemize their deductions. If the vehicle sold for less than $500, donors can deduct the “fair market value” up to $500. They will receive a tax receipt or IRS Form 1098C stating what the vehicle sold for within 30 days of its sale.

     
  2. The “fair market value” of a vehicle is the price that a donor could sell it for in its current condition to another individual, willing seller and willing buyer, and it represents the cash that a donor gives up to make the donation. A convenient source of this information is the private party sale value as shown in online valuation guides such as Kelley Blue Book 

     
  3. ICA, as the actual recipient of the donation, must file Form 1098C with the IRS for all vehicle donations, including donor’s Social Security number and vehicle’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN. There are no tax filings required of the non-profit.

     
  4. V-DAC gives no tax advice. It is solely the donor’s responsibility to report vehicle value and tax status. For more information about tax deduction for vehicle donation, the IRS provides . “A Donor's Guide to Car Donations”
