Please consider making a difference by donating your used car, van, truck, boat with a trailer, or recreational vehicle to ERM. With our easy to use online donation system, you are able to donate seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The proceeds from the sale of donated vehicles helps the people of Rwanda and beyond turn away from a horrific past and look ahead to a future built on Christ, economic stability, educational excellence, and strong communities.

Vehicle donations made to ERM Rwanda 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.
