Donate Your Car

Would you like to earn a tax deduction? Or would you simply want a good reason for getting a new car? Now you can have both. Donate your car to the Montgomery County Students Automotive Trades Foundation (ATF). Your donation will help approximately 350 high school students in Montgomery County learn how to evaluate, repair, and refurbish used cars. The students run a “Mini Dealership” where people can purchase the refurbished cars.

The ATF graciously accepts donations at the following locations:

  • Damascus HS
  • Gaithersburg HS 
  • Thomas Edison HS of Technology 
  • Seneca Valley HS

 

The ATF program always welcomes vehicles for donation. We generally accept donated vehicles that meet the following criteria:

 

  • Runs under its own power (unless the customer is willing to tow in)
  • No major accidents (such as a bent frame)
  • Has a title and lien release document (only needed if the title shows a previous lien holder)

 

Donor must also complete a Donation Authorization Form

Evaluation

Each vehicle is evaluated by students in the ATF program. Based on their evaluation, the vehicles will be utilized in one of three areas of instruction:

  1. Complete renovation for use as part of the marketing program, to be sold to the general public
  2. Partial renovation for sale as part of our wholesale operation
  3. Use as a training aid in the automotive technology or automotive body repair courses
