[Noisebridge-discuss] car donation

I donated my barely-running car to SF SPCA in May.  It was awesome!  I
called a number for their Car Donation vendor/partner who scheduled a
pickup time.  They sent out a tow truck, I signed a form, signed over the
title to SF SPCA, gave them the title and keys. Easy!

The car then goes to auction.  Once it sold I was able to get a donation
receipt with the actual amount it sold for. (Without this you can only
deduct up to $500).

Is that not acceptable for you because you want to deduct KBB value not the
actual market value?

Hi all,

I have decided to donate my still running car to charity. According to our
friend, the Internet, I can only tax deduct the Kelly's Blue Book value of
the vehicle if the organization accepting the donation will not be selling
the car, but will, instead, find some use for it. Does anyone know of such
a non-profit? or has specific suggestions of whom to ask/contact?
