Donate Your Car

Do you have a car or vehicle you aren’t using? Donate it to OMF! CARS accepts donations within the US of cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles or any other motorized vehicles on behalf of OMF, and your donation is 100% tax-deductible. Click here for more information and to fill out the online form.

Donate Stock

Make the most of your donation. Donate your appreciated stock directly to OMF and you can receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them). OMF sells your securities and uses the proceeds for research. You also do not pay capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold. Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it. In advance, thank you for making this generous gift.

Employer Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Some provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours too. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift! Please check with your employer to see if you can increase the impact of your gift with their match.

If your employer requires an Employer Identification Number (EIN) (i.e. Federal Tax Identification Number), please use 26-4712664.
