Vehicle donations made to The Arc are tax deductible. Our organization has been designated by the IRS as a 501c (3) charity. The best practice is to consult with a tax professional on how to maximize your tax deduction since every car donation and tax situation is unique. In general, the IRS limits the tax deduction to the gross proceeds from the sale of the car, truck, or other vehicle. Charitable contributions must be itemized on Schedule A of Form 1040 to qualify. If the gross proceeds exceed $500, Form 1098C “Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes” and Form 8283 "Non Cash Charitable Contributions", must also be completed and attached. Forms 1098C and 8283 are required to be provided to the donor within 30 days of the sale of the vehicle.
To learn more on what the donors’ responsibilities are prior to making a car donation, please consult the "Donors Guide to Vehicle Donations" found in IRS Publication 4303. The file may be read with Adobe Reader.

Gift of Time
During the year, The Arc of Dauphin County offers more than 1,500 hours of camping and other activities that are enjoyable to consumers, and also provides respite for their families. Sometimes the greatest barrier to accessing these programs is financial. Through the “Gift of Time” registry, you can earmark funds for a specific consumer, making it possible for him/her to attend a class, camp, or any of The Arc’s activities. It’s a gift that helps the whole family!
