Donate Your Vehicle

The San Diego History Center partners with CARS™, a national vehicle donation program, as a means to support our mission of telling the diverse story of our region – past, present and future – educating and enriching our community, preserving our history, and fostering civic pride.

CARS™ accepts almost any vehicle — cars, trucks, motorcycles, RVs, trailers, boats, planes, ATVs, even farm equipment – that is in one piece and towable from any location in the continental United States. Customer service representatives are available seven days a week and more than 1,000 vendors across the United States are available to pick up donations at a convenient time and location.

Donations are tax deductible and donors will receive a receipt from the towing vendor, as well as an IRS form within 30 days of the sale if the contribution exceeds $500. To support the San Diego History Center today through a vehicle donation, fill out the secure donation form below or call 844- SDHC-CAR (844-734-2227).
