Considering selling or trading in your old car, truck or SUV? Give it new life by donating it to The National WWII Museum.
The Museum’s national car donation program is a hassle-free way of putting your used vehicle to work supporting our efforts to tell the story of the American experience during World War II. In addition, you may be eligible to receive a tax deduction for the vehicle’s sale price.
How it Works
The National WWII Museum has teamed with Charitable Auto Resources, Inc. (CARS), to accept vehicle donations across the United States.
Once you contact our customer service representative about making the donation, everything will be taken care of—including free vehicle pick–up—in any state. Once your vehicle is sold, we'll send you a receipt for your tax records, and the sale proceeds will be donated to The National WWII Museum in your name.
If the car sells for less than $500.00, the receipt given when the car is towed away will serve as your tax receipt. If the car sells for $500.00 or more, your will receive a 1098-C form for tax purposes.

Other Ways to Give
As a Member of The National WWII Museum, you can permanently honor the service and sacrifice of your personal connection to World War II at the Museum built to honor the legacy of freedom secured by the courageous men and women of the Greatest Generation.
The Museum receives no government funding for our ongoing operating expenses, therefore we depend heavily on admission revenue and donations to pay the bills. With every $10 you donate, you will help cover the cost of admission for WWII veterans and the resources it takes to ensure their stories are never forgotten.
With a brick at The National WWII Museum, you have a unique opportunity to create a lasting tribute to loved ones who served their country.
Our collection consists of objects ranging in size from tiny uniform buttons to large military aircraft. Our donors understand that as America’s WWII Museum, we will be a resource to researchers and educators for generations to come.
Now more than ever, we need to do all we can to ensure that the courage and sacrifices of the men and women who won World War II are remembered with gratitude and respect and kept relevant for all Americans. One important way to help achieve this goal is to make a deferred planned gift to the Museum as part of your estate plan.
