Why do they have to be naive and stupid? Perhaps they just want someone to be able to use something they no longer want. I donate a lot of stuff simply because I no longer need it and want someone to use it. I don't care what happened after it leaves my hands so long as its not be thrown in a landfill.

I should have rephrased that, "most of these car donation places are a bunch of scams where naive people foolishly donate to them". And I say that because people could actually get decent money for their cars if they took the time to call around different lots. Instead they call one of these crooks that take their car, sell them for decent money, use it just for financial incentive and give you some write off for pennies on the dollar. I got over a grand for my totalled Ford a few years ago and my father in law got over $600 for his non running Toyota.
You want to give your money away to some shyster go right ahead. Maybe I should setup my own charity. I'll call it 1800-cars-from-dopes.

I think the issue is more that the people who can use whatever it is are paying money to the middleman who took your donation for free

Most places are a scam, either try to sell the car privately for parts only only or sell it to a junk yard that picks it up from your home and gives you about $150.

I read reviews when I was trying to donate my car, people claim these companies promise gift cards or a tax write off, and they ended up with nothing.

Scam after scam after scam after scam. "Just $19 a month <forever> for sad starved dogs, children with swollen bellies, bald toddlers with cancer."
If the advertised recipients got even 50% of the proceeds I would be shocked.


I just change the channel or throw the mailer right into recycling.

Donations don't matter tax wise anymore unless it's a big enough contribution that lowers your overall individual tax hit. Now that deductions took a big hit by the new tax laws, donating a few hundreds of thousands doesn't do anything to lower the tax bill directly.
