Car Donation sm

Have a car you no longer want, picked up free of charge? Running or not, call Donate for Charity today!


Buying a new car? Getting rid of an old one? Selling isn’t your only option. We’ve teamed up with Donate for Charity to make donating your vehicle easy.  It’s a win for all:  you get a minimum $500 tax deduction (or higher, depending on what your car sells for), and Science Museum of Western Virginia receives the net proceeds to support our programs.

By donating your car, you’ll avoid the headache of selling a used vehicle. Whether the vehicle is running or not, Donate For Charity can help process the donation. We certainly appreciate our donors considering this option as a way to help support our cause.  You can either click on the link provided: Vehicle Donation Form or call Donate For Charity directly at (866) 392-4483.
