V-DAC manages a service that duplicates how the largest
charities handle vehicle donations. The Association will receive about the same amount a car dealer would clear if he accepted the car as a trade-in, prepared and auctioned the vehicle (including dealer overhead). The amount a charity receives varies with the age, condition and type of vehicle. Some vehicles cost more to pick up and process than they bring in at auction and so the charity receives nothing. If your charity is donated a number
of vehicles, they should receive between 45% and 60% of gross auction/sale proceeds.
