Donate Your Vehicle

Cars for Seals! Your vehicle donation to The Marine Mammal Center will help the patients and ease the process of disposing of your car.

YES! You can donate your vehicle* with the proceeds going to The Marine Mammal Center! Just fill out the online form at Donate for Charity. By donating your vehicle, you are making a vital contribution to the patients at the Center and you will avoid the headache of selling a used vehicle.

How It Works

Once you complete the form, you will be contacted by a representative from a licensed and insured towing company within two business days who will arrange for pickup at a mutually acceptable time.

  • There are no towing or transfer fees.
  • A valid and signed Certificate of Title (no lien holders) is required.

The Marine Mammal Center receives 70-80% of the net proceeds, depending on the sale value of your vehicle.

As the donor, you'll receive the sale value of the vehicle as a tax deduction if the vehicle is sold for $500 or more. If the vehicle sells for less than $500, you may declare the fair market value (up to a maximum of $500) or the sale price-- whichever is greater. To assist you in determining the fair market value, Donate for Charity provides the Kelley Blue Book estimate.

*Donate for Charity generally accepts most cars, trucks, vans, fleet vehicles, trailers, boats, and RVs from any location in all 50 states. You can also contact them directly at (866) 392-4483 or
