PRESS RELEASE: NAMI DuPage Partners with Vehicle Donation to any Charity (V-DAC) to Accept Vehicle Donations

June 6, 2016

Wheaton, IL: NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) DuPage announced that it has registered with Vehicle Donation to Any Charity, LLC (V-DAC), a commercial fundraiser, registered with the Attorney General of the State of California, to establish a vehicle donation program.

Donors are now able to support NAMI DuPage by donating their car, truck, boat, airplane, motorcycle, RV, or motorhome. There are no costs to the donor or the nonprofit. The costs of pick-up or towing, title transfer, processing and management of the vehicle donation are paid for from the proceeds of the vehicle sale. The net proceeds of the sale are sent to V-DAC’s Central Charity for distribution to NAMI DuPage. Donors are eligible to receive a tax deduction equal to the sales price of the vehicle, if they itemize deductions and will receive an IRS 1098-C tax form. NAMI DuPage will receive 75% of the recovery amount for vehicles that sell for more than $500 and 70% for vehicles that sell for less than $500.

“This is an expedient, low cost method to raise funds through vehicle donation” stated Angela Adkins, Executive Director. “We are delighted to offer this option to our supporters who may wish to dispose of an unwanted vehicle without the hassle of trading in or selling.
