Vehicle Donation

Handing over the keys to a car

By donating your car, truck, van SUV, RV, motorcycle or boat, you can help us reach even more West Seattle seniors with unique and innovative programming, activities, and services.

The Senior Center of West Seattle partners with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, to accept vehicle donations.

Donate Your Vehicle  


Will I become a donor when I donate my vehicle?

Your donation counts as a donation toward the Senior Center of West Seattle. CARS will send an initial donor acknowledgement letter. We will follow up with a letter of our own a couple weeks afterward.

How soon will the Senior Center receive funds from my contribution?

CARS deposits money from the sale of your car within 5 days of receiving the funds from the sales company. The entire donation process usually takes 6 to 8 weeks.

Why haven’t I received an acknowledgment letter and/or my donor benefits yet?

Your car may not have sold yet. It can often take six to eight weeks for a vehicle donation to be completed. Once the Senior Center of West Seattle is notified of the sale, it takes another week to process the gift, then a week to send out an acknowledgement letter.
