Donate Your Vehicle

If you have a vehicle that you are thinking of trading in or selling, consider donating it to the JCC, Sonoma County Donate a Car Program.

When your vehicle is sold, the proceeds will go to the JCC to help support Jewish programming in Sonoma County.  You may also be able to deduct the fair market value of your vehicle as a charitable contribution for income tax purposes.

We have partnered with Car Program, which accepts most vehicles, including cars, trucks, trailers, boats and RVs. The donation process is easy online or by phone.
