Why Donate Your Car to NTD TV SF


As no-profit organization and one of the only Chinese national public television groups, your donations help support us and keep our organization going. We rely on the sale of your donations to keep our programs live and on the air. All car donations go to programming and operations.

The current state of your vehicle doesn’t matter as we provide all necessary repairs and inspections after collection. This eliminates the need for you to spend any additional money on a car that no longer runs. After repairs, your old, donated vehicle helps provide reliable transportation to those in need. You can also file your donation as a tax deduction and save money at the end of the year.

We all benefit from your car donation, so donate your old car today.

Car Donation FAQ

Yes! We accept most (if not all) car donations. We try to repair all vehicles back to working order.
Of course! We don’t discriminate against the age of a donated car. All are welcome.
You can claim a deduction on your taxes for the value of your vehicle up to $500, or the amount we sell your donated car for if it’s more than $500.
You’ll receive a tax-deductible receipt in the mail up to 4 weeks after completing your donation.
We can’t accept abandoned cars, unfortunately. For impounded vehicles, you’ll need to contact the local police and toll yard.
We will need the car, all copies of its keys, and the title.
Not at all. You’ll have to remove all personal belongings from the vehicle and leave all keys and the title inside.
After filing the donation form, you’ll receive a call from our affiliated towing company who will schedule a time (usually within 24 hours of the phone call) to pick it up. We are more than willing to work with you on scheduling a time that’s most convenient.

The rules vary from state-to-state. It’s best to remove the license plate and return it to the DMV.
The towing company should give you a receipt of pickup that contains our information. You’ll have to call us at the number on this receipt to receive your tax-deductible receipt, which we will send in the mail.
Nope! There are no fees and no charges relating to donating your car to NTD TV SF.
After pickup, we inspect and repair your vehicle. Then, we try to sell it for the maximum amount possible. The proceeds of this sale go towards the maintenance and production of NTD TV SF. You’ll also receive a tax-deductible receipt in the same amount the car was sold for.
We have an experienced team of salesmen who evaluate the value of your car based on the vehicle’s year, make, model, mileage, and local market. We try our best to sell your vehicle for the highest possible price, which gives us more money to use for programming and gives you a higher tax deduction.
Yes, but you’ll need a copy of the death certificate and documents that prove you have inherited the vehicle.
Absolutely. We are more than happy to accept your car whether it has passed inspections or not.
We are a no-profit organization. In fact, we are one of the only Chinese national public television groups that’s not affected by Chinese official media. Our goal is to bridge the gap between the East and West, allowing for an equal exchange of free and true information as well as cultural tradition. With your generous car donation, you will help us to provide this free and true information to people in mainland China via satellite and internet anti-blocking platforms. We’ll be able to produce more and better televised media (shows, documentaries, etc). It also helps us to ensure that frontline reports can independently report emergencies and events in China and the rest of the world.
