Vehicle Donors Making a Difference for Kids with Cancer

“I heard about Alex’s Lemonade Stand shortly after my cousin lost her granddaughter to rhabdomyosarcoma. Alex’s story as well as so many others opened our eyes to how underfunded this disease is and how much needs to be done to support research. We were so delighted that Alex’s Lemonade Stand provided such an easy, accessible way for families like ours to give what we can.” - Mary

“The tow truck driver came from 50 miles away to pick up my car. I appreciated that. It was a car of my mother's, who can no longer drive. It was in beautiful shape, but I had three other cars and hoped someone could use it.” - Cheryl

“My experience was great. I called and within 48 hours the car was picked up from my driveway. It was so convenient and easy to make this donation, and I received my receipt for tax purposes promptly and updates on the auction of it afterwards. I would recommend and/or donate in the future if I have the opportunity.” – Andrea

Vehicle donations are tax-deductible. In most cases, donors will receive an initial receipt from the tow driver at the time of pick-up. Donors will also be mailed a letter on behalf of ALSF within 30 days of the sale of vehicle, which serves as your tax receipt. Donation forms must be completed by December 31 to count as a donation in the same tax year.

How much from the sale of the vehicle benefits Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation?

Up to 80% of the sales earned from each vehicle will directly benefit ALSF.
