Frequently Asked Questions

What can I donate?

You can donate most any vehicle, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. They do not have to be currently running. Your vehicle donation will be sold at an auction or to salvage depending on condition. 

Is my donation tax-deductible?

Yes, Animal Assisted Therapy Programs of Colorado is a non-profit organization and all donations qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return.

What do I need to donate my car?

The title to the car must be in your name. We will also need some information about where the car is located and the condition of the car. This will assist us in scheduling appropriate towing arrangements.

Will you pick up my car?

A towing company will call you to schedule the pick-up of your vehicle. You will need to give the driver the keys to the vehicle as well as your signed title.

How is the value of my car determined?

The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to include the IRS form 1098C. Vehicles for Charity will supply this documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.

You, our Major Donors, are the key to our organization's growth to meet the growing mental health needs of our community. Instead of pre-determined Donor Levels we look forward to working with you and your organization to maximize your investment in us, while realizing the recognition you deserve! Let's have a conversation on how we can help each other. 

Contact Linda Chassman at  lchassman@aatpc.org or 720-266-4444 x1 for assistance in making your tax-deductible contribution.

Here is a list of projects in our Capital Campaign. The project entails demolishing two unusable buildings on our current property and building a 4880 square foot building with 7 additional counseling rooms, community space, staff space, 2 large animal stalls and storage and cleaning areas, and a small indoor arena to work with the large animals in inclement weather. This will allow AATPC to double the number of clients seen each day. 

All of these projects come with Naming or Dedication Rights for 5 years (from date of building opening).

 We are responsible for the health and happiness of many rescued and re-homed animals. Animal care alone accounts for nearly 1/5 of our budget!

Donations also fund animal care and facility maintenance so that we can focus on providing the best counseling services to all those clients who need our assistance. You can even designate your donation to help a specific animal! See our Animal Sponsorship Program for more information.

Your donations are tax-deductible EIN#: 45-4423891.
