Another Way to Help: Donate Your Old Car or Truck

posted Jul 15, 2016, 6:00 PM by web feat   [ updated Oct 3, 2016, 5:26 AM ]

Wondering what to do with your used car or truck? Donating your old vehicle to Family Promise of Warren County is convenient, easy, and may qualify you for a tax deduction. And best of all, your donation of a used car or truck will make a big difference in supporting Family Promise of Warren County!

All you need to do is to complete the simple online form or call 1-866- 628-2277 and our partner, Vehicles For Charity, will take care of the rest. They will pick up your vehicle or arrange to have your donation towed, and provide you with a tax-deductible receipt, all at no charge to you!

Frequently Asked Questions: 

What can I donate?
You can donate most any vehicle, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. They do not have to be currently running. Your vehicle donation will be sold at an auction or to salvage depending on condition. 

Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes, Family Promise of Warren County is a non-profit organization and all donations qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return.

What do I need to donate my car?
The title to the car must be in your name. Vehicles For Charity will also need some information about where the car is located and the condition of the car. This will assist them in scheduling appropriate towing arrangements.

Will you pick up my car?
A towing company will call you to schedule the pick-up of your vehicle. You will need to give the driver the keys to the vehicle as well as your signed title.

How is the value of my car determined?
The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to include the IRS form 1098C. Vehicles for Charity will supply this
documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.

Family Promise of Warren County has partnered with Vehicles For Charity to process donated vehicles. Just call 1 866 628 2277 they will answer any other questions you may have and make arrangements to pick up your donation.

Thanks in advance for for your consideration!

Help Support These Cardboard Cities to Help Raise Awareness

posted May 4, 2016, 5:58 PM by web feat

While many will be warm and dry inside their homes, this May, teenagers in 2 Warren County communities will be outside raising awareness of family homelessness and raising funds for Family Promise of Warren County. 

Family Promise of Warren County and the Interfaith Hospitality Network sheltering program are once again honored to be the donor recipient of not one, but two, Cardboard Box City events in 2016. 

On May 14 & 15, youth from the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Hackettstown will hold their event, followed by the youth of St. Theodore Roman Catholic Church  in Port Murray on May 21 & 22.

A cardboard box city event is a great way for youth groups and for the entire community to raise awareness of homelessness in our own backyards. 

Many Warren County families face serious challenges to housing stability. Some need comprehensive services to keep them safe and to end their homelessness.  Family Promise of Warren County is a small but mighty non-profit agency that does just that, keeping families together and safe. We are all very grateful and fortunate to have these youth groups helping the agency to keep its doors open to those most in need.

Please feel free to reach out to the contact individuals listed below to see how you can help to make these events successful. You can support and sponsor the youth in this endeavor to address this important issue in our communities!
