Goodwill Cars to Work Makes Donations Simple in Louisville, KY

We’re so excited that you’re interested in donating a vehicle to Goodwill Cars to Work in Louisville, KY! Our team members are here to guide you through the short process. We make the donation process as simple and convenient for you as possible. Your generosity is endlessly appreciated by our staff and the community, which is why we do all that we can to facilitate your vehicle donation.

What kind of vehicle can be donated?

Our Goodwill auction will accept almost any vehicle, from heavy-duty trucks to your average run-of-the-mill sedan. We know that your vehicle will be a great fit for someone in the community. If your vehicle doesn’t run or start, we’ll still happily accept your donation. We’ll also still accept your vehicle if it did not pass emission tests. When you donate a car, our experts will assess the vehicle and make sure it’s ready to go for its new owner.

If you’d like to donate a vehicle that belonged to someone who is now deceased, we can accept it as long as you have a copy of their valid death certificate and official documentation that names you as the inheritor of the vehicle.

If you find an abandoned vehicle and think it’s a great donation vehicle, we, unfortunately are unable to accept it. You should contact your local law enforcement officer to report the vehicle.
