We like to say "Everybody Wins" at One Community Auto. Our mission is simple:  Help non-profits raise money through car donations. 

We create a win-win-win by taking in donated vehicles, refurbishing them, and then reselling them at our Albuquerque retail lot to your neighbors in need of an affordable used vehicle. This not only saves the car from the junk yard, but it also gives you a higher deduction and the charity more money to complete their missions.  Other programs send vehicles to auction, but we save the vehicles and give them new life. 

We generate, on average, 5-10x more than other donation programs.  Please save your car by donating it to one of the local charities we support. Click here to understand how it works.

1) YOU WIN by getting a tax deduction and helping a local charity or non-profit

2) CHARITIES & NON-PROFIT GROUPS WIN by receiving the proceeds from your vehicle dontation

3) YOUR NEIGHBORS WIN by having access to used vehicles that they can afford

Why Donate?

We respect the contributions donors are making. We maximize value both for the donor and the charity. We do this by evaluating your donation and refurbishing when practical. It's then sold via our retail outlet vs. going to auction. It’s a win-win and all proceeds stay here in NM.

Tax Deduction

By donating a car to charity through One Community Auto, you will receive a larger tax deduction than you might receive from other car donation services out there. IRS regulations allow many of our donors to claim the full retail sale price of your refurbished car!  Bottom line, you get to deduct what the car sells for.  We sell at retail vs being sold at auction or junk yard.
