Donate your car

By donating your vehicle to the Good Neighbor Garage (GNG), you provide hope through transportation. Individuals that qualify for our program receive your donated car, which ensures that they can drive to work and take their kids to school. We handle all the repairs, so you don’t need to do anything except drop off the keys! 

GNG is a unique car donation program as it is one of few charities in Colorado, which allows you to claim the full-market value of your donated car. When you donate to GNG, you can maximize your tax deduction making it a win-win for all! If you have additional questions, or if you would like to find out more about donating your vehicle to Good Neighbor Garage, please contact us at (720) 941-5897 or email GNG at info@goodneighborgarage.org
