Vehicle Donation Program
Buying a new car? Getting rid of an old one? Selling isn’t your only option. We’ve teamed up with Donate for Charity to make donating your car, boat or RV easy. It’s a win for all: You get a minimum $500 tax deduction (or higher, depending on what your car sells for), and Nichi Bei Foundation receives the net proceeds.
