 FACTS ABOUT VEHICLE DONATIONS

Did you know that when someone donates a car to a non-profit entity, the national average shows that less than 15% of the value of the car is actually going to the intended beneficiary. The main reason is that most charities use third party promoters and administrators and that's where most of the revenue goes.  For example, if someone was to give your charity a $5,000 car for a specific purpose, the actual net amount of money received for that purpose is generally under $500 (based on the national average).  This is total non-sense! 

  • 300,000 vehicles donated to charities every year
  • Total value: over $750 million
  • Average costs: 85%+
  • Average net to charity: under 15%
  • Most charities use third party promoters and administrators = little left to charity
  • Vehicle donations as main fundraising source is rarely successful without the proper system in place
  • Most charities fail to take advantage of the full potential associated with vehicle donation
  • Charities rarely can accept any vehicles other than cars 

 WHY USE THE UNIFIED VEHICLE DONATION system

FEA is a non-profit organization able to by-pass the third parties normally involved, thus eliminating the need to use the majority of the funds for marketing and administration. The end-result is that in average 85% of the net revenue of a vehicle donation goes to the itended beneficiary, much better that the 15% national average. FEA receives the vehicle on your behalf, considers your desired end-result, determines the best course of action to meet the objectives, disposes of the vehicle, transfers the net revenue to you.


 HOW IT WORKS

There are four major elements:

  1. You market this service to your members, followers, supporters
  2. Potential donors follow a unique link tied to your entity and fill out an online form.
  3. The simple 3-step process is initiated: 1. The vehicle is acquired; 2. The vehicle is disposed to meet your objective (donated to a qualified recipient, resold retail, resold through third party, or through auction); 3. The paperwork is completed.
  4. Proceeds are distributed: depending on your objectives, in average 85% of revenue generated by the disposal of the vehicle is sent to your entity while the remaining 15% is used to cover expenses such as towing, repairs, selling fees, etc.
