Where does the money from my vehicle go?
Between 78% and 86% of the sales revenue go to Habitat for Humanity, most of which comes to the affiliate where the vehicle was donated. For example, if your vehicle is donated in Island County, the proceeds come to our affiliate. If you have a friend or family member who lives in a different area but wants their donation to come to us, they can indicate that when they call to make their donation.
What happens to donated cars?
About half of the cars donated are sold to licensed dealers at wholesale auctions and are reused for transporation. The other half typically go to auto salvage yards. Vehicles that can be recycled are crushed, shredded, and recycled into steel.
