Step 1

The private sale value of your car

Check one or more used car valuation services and estimate what amount your used car (in its condition) would sell for in a private party sale.  The value depends on your car’s make, model and year, plus options, mileage and condition.

See What’s your used car worth?

While you’re getting the the private sale value, also get the trade-in value. You’ll need it in Step 2.

Once you figure out the private sale value, enter it below. $1,000 is the minimum private sale value that can be used in the Car Donation Calculator.


Apologies! The calculator has been hacked. Your calculations will not work. The results from earlier calculations in the Summary should give lots of good examples. We’re working on overcoming the hack. Argh!!
