Vehicle Donations

Now there’s a new way to offer your support to Jazz90.1-by donating your usable but unwanted car or truck, to Jazz90.1.

Simply call 585-966-2660 to arrange for a pickup.

Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions:

What can I donate?
Jazz90.1 accepts usable but unwanted vehicles including cars and trucks. Your vehicle will be sold at auction and the proceeds come to Jazz90.1.

What do I have to do?
Call 585-966-2660 and our operators will walk you through the process in a few minutes. All we need is some basic information. Also, the title must be in your name and will need to be signed prior to being donated.

Will you pick up the car?
Yes! We want this process to be as easy as possible. A representative from a local towing company will call you to make pick-up arrangements. The driver will take your keys and the signed title and he/she will give you a towing receipt showing that your vehicle was collected. You will also receive a donation letter from us for your records.

Is my car donation tax deductible?
Yes. Greece Community Broadcasting Inc. (the Jazz90.1 Companion Fundraising Organization), is a 501(C)(3) non-profit. Please check with your tax consultant for instructions on how to list your donation as a charitable deduction.

How do I determine the value of the car?
As of January 1, 2005, the IRS changed the guidelines for vehicle donations. If the claimed value of the donated motor vehicle exceeds $500 and the item is sold by the charitable organization, the taxpayer is limited to the gross proceeds from the sale. You will receive all of the information you will need for tax purposes directly from Greece Community Broadcasting Inc.

Jazz90.1 and Greece Community Broadcasting Inc. are not permitted to assign a value to your donation. You will, however, receive an acknowledgement of the donation including specific information about the vehicle from Greece Community Broadcasting Inc.

How do I claim my tax deduction?
You should include the sale proceeds of your vehicle, as provided to you by Greece Community Broadcasting, as an itemized deduction on your tax return for the year in which you make the donation.

If you have any questions, please contact us by calling 585-966-2660, or e-mailing jazzinfo@jazz901.org. Thank you for your support!
