Why donate you car, truck or other vehicle to Mental Health Cars™?
Your vehicle donation will go towards raising awareness regarding mental health issues in Canada. In addition, your contribution may aide in research and development. For example, are there genetic issues? Your funds will allow doctors and scientists to continue to do extensive research on mental health issues that affect thousands of Canadians.
Mental illness is a leading cause of disability in Canada.
70 percent of mental health problems and illnesses have their onset during childhood or adolescence. Through research, doctors can identify the issues causing the onset.
In Canada, there is a present cost of $ 51 billion per year that goes towards mental illness. Your contribution may help to offset those costs to the taxpayer.
In any given week, 500,000 Canadians are unable to work due to mental illness.
As a charitable contribution, the donation of your vehicle can make a big difference in the life of someone who is living with mental illness. A car donation to Mental Health Cars™ is a donation to mental health awareness. We are able to remove any used car, truck or van and provide you with free pick up. The proceeds of your donated vehicle will go directly to CAMH, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. You will receive a receipt for income tax purposes for the value of your vehicle. We handle everything. It is transparent to you. All you need to do is fill out the Donate Now! form, or call 1-877-912-2464. You will also have peace of mind knowing that your used vehicle is going towards helping one of many who live with mental illness. Your unwanted vehicle will be removed from your property in a safe and responsible manner.

How do you determine the value of the tax receipt?
The value of the tax receipt is determined by what is done with the vehicle once donated. All donations qualify for a tax receipt; if a vehicle is resold in its current condition the tax receipt will be for the full sale amount, otherwise the tax receipt will be for the scrap value of the vehicle.
On occasion if a vehicle is of a high value and in excellent condition an appraisal may be necessary to determine the value.
