Donate Your Vehicle to OPB!

Turn your car into great programs and independent journalism!

Donate your car (or truck, motorcycle, RV, boat, plane or other vehicle) to OPB and the proceeds will support trusted reporting, powerful storytelling and entertaining programs!

We’ll handle all the details at no charge to you, plus you can receive a tax deduction when you itemize your return.


How do I donate my vehicle to OPB?

It’s simple! Contact OPB’s vehicle donation partner, Speed’s Towing. They’ll arrange the free pickup of your vehicle (no-contact pickups are available). Here’s how to reach them:

· Fill out our online form

· Email: donations@speedstowingpdx.com

· Phone: 503-421-3273


What paperwork do I need to get started?

You’ll need to have a title that is clear of all liens and has your name on the front.

If the title is not available, please apply for a replacement title with the Oregon DMV or the Washington DOL and contact us when you have the replacement title. (If your vehicle is 10 years old or older and is registered in Oregon, it’s possible other arrangements can be made. Please call Speed’s Towing for more information.)


Do I get a receipt for my donation?

Our driver will issue a temporary receipt at the time of pickup. Your final tax receipt will be mailed to you within 30 days of the sale of your vehicle at auction and will include the amount of gross proceeds received by OPB.


What can I claim as a deduction?

We recommend that you refer to IRS Publication 4303 “A Donor’s Guide to Vehicle Donations” or contact your tax advisor to determine the amount of your tax deduction.


Does my car have to be running to qualify for donation?

No, but the car must have an engine and be towable.


Do I have to be with the vehicle at the time of pickup?

No. Just let Speed’s Towing know when they schedule your pickup.


How much money will OPB receive?

The amount will vary from vehicle to vehicle. We work hard to make our program as efficient as possible, and to get top dollar for your vehicle. All proceeds from the sale of your vehicle will benefit the programs you rely on from OPB.
