Vehicle Donations

We partner with Volunteers of America Oregon, to accept donations of most cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, boats, motorcycles, and trailers. This program allows a donor to donate a vehicle to Volunteers of America (VOA), and 60 percent of the proceeds benefit Friends of the Children.

Vehicles must be complete (tires, motor, driveline and transmission). They do not have to be running. The vehicle must be within the VOA towing area, which includes all cities located on the I-5 corridor from Portland to Ashland.

If you are interested in donating your vehicle, please complete this form and be sure to select Friends of the Children as the beneficiary. Contact us if you have any questions or need assistance.
