GIVE You can help save a young person's life.

Donate a Vehicle

San Diego Youth Services receives donations and other gifts through a variety of ways to help make our vital work possible. We are proud that 89 percent of all funds go to serve youth directly.

How does it work?

Donation of a used vehicle can greatly benefit our organization. Make a donation today through our nonprofit partner CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) by filling out an online form or calling 855.500.RIDE.

5 Reasons to Donate a Vehicle

  1. It’s easy and the pick-up is free
  2. The proceeds from the sale of your vehicle will help us continue to support youth across San Diego
  3.  Donating saves time and money on repairs and maintenance
  4. Donating beats the hassles and worries of selling
  5. Vehicle donations are tax-deductible.

After completing a donation form, you will be contacted within 24 hours to start the donation process. Once the donation record has been created and completed, CARS will reach out to you within 2 to 3 business days to schedule your pick-up.
