Vehicle Donations

The Vehicle Donation Program receives donated vehicles: cars, motorcycles, trucks, boats, motor homes, travel trailers, and aircraft to sell on our virtual lot or at auction.   

100% of the proceeds from the sale supports VOA Oregon’s mission of changing lives by promoting self-determination, building strong communities and standing for social justice.  Vehicles are picked up free of charge and inspected to determine how to maximize the value of each donation.  Our program has served the Oregon community for over 20 years, and our experienced team provides a high level of customer satisfaction.  The process is simple, hassle-free and convenient.
