Participate in Rotary’s Vehicle Donation Program

How the Vehicle Donation Program works

  • Rotarians generate vehicle donations through family, friends, and associates
  • Melwood Charity Car Donation Center (District 7710’s Partner) accepts cars, trucks, motorcycles, and RV’s
    • As a rule there must be a clean vehicle title; towing is free to donor

To donate simply call the Rotary 7710’s toll-free number I- 855-527-2232, or go online to:

  • Donor names Rotary Club to be credited for the donation
  • Melwood’s Call Center assigns the vehicle to a local towing and auction company
    • Donor provides vehicle title and keys to the tow truck operator; towing receipt left with the donor
  • Once the vehicle has been picked up, a receipt will be issued to the donor using Southwest Durham Rotary Club Foundation letterhead. Vehicle sale information recorded and reported monthly to Southwest Durham Rotary Club Foundation; club is advised by SWDR Foundation
  • Upon sale, auction proceeds are forwarded to Melwood and management fees are deducted
  • Residual forwarded to Southwest Durham Rotary Club Foundation for distribution to Club and/or beneficiary projects
  • Melwood  processes  donor acknowledgement letter along with  required  IRS  I098C tax forms
  • Melwood provides ongoing promotional support for District 7710 and participating Clubs
  • Donation files are maintained by Melwood for a period of three years
