Property Gifts

Donate your real estate or other assets to Mercy For Animals.

Gifts of Kindness

Your real estate can make a real impact on the lives of animals. Gifts of fine jewelry and other personal property are also valuable assets that will further Mercy For Animals' vital programs. Gifts of property to MFA often entitle donors to income tax deductions. Donors will also save on capital gains tax that they would have paid if the property had appreciated in value and they sold the property themselves.

Automobiles for Animals

Donating your unwanted vehicle to Mercy For Animals is a fast and efficient way to support MFA’s crucial work while saving you the time and hassle of selling your automobile or calling a tow truck. When a vehicle donation is pledged, Vehicle Donation to Any Charity (V-DAC) takes the donor information over the telephone, and handles all of the documents, vehicle pickup, sale at auction, and distribution of proceeds to MFA. Every month, MFA receives approximately 75 percent of the net proceeds.

Donating a vehicle to MFA also offers you the following benefits:

  • IRS tax deduction
  • No confusing Department of Motor Vehicles paperwork or smog tests
  • Free vehicle pickup whether your donated car runs or not (restrictions apply)
  • No headaches of selling a used car: no expensive want ads, no taking phone calls, no showing the car, and no price haggling

You can contact V-DAC directly to donate your vehicle.
