Saratoga Automobile Museum revives Donate a Vehicle program
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. >> The Saratoga Automobile Museum has announced it is reviving their Donate a Vehicle program to help boost fundraising efforts, to support exhibits and educational programming, such as the distracted driving initiative.
Vehicles that can be donated under the program include cars, trucks, SUVs, boats, campers, and RVs. Vehicle age does not factor into what can be donated, nor the road worthiness condition.
The Museum will review vehicles offered for donation in two ways; those that will be considered for the Museum’s exhibit collection, which is based on their connection to our mission and collecting focus, and those vehicles that will be sold. 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of a donated vehicle goes directly to the Museum and all vehicle donations are tax deductible for the donor.
The first vehicle donated under the revived program was a 1955 Ford Thunderbird that was auctioned off, at no reserve, during the third annual Saratoga
Auto Auction in Sept. 2019. All proceeds from the sale of the donated vehicle directly benefited the Museum. The Saratoga Auto Auction is the largest fundraiser for the Museum and is held at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center.
“We are grateful that the local community continues to support the
Museum and its mission.” said Carly Connors, executive director, “Our Donate a Vehicle program is another way for people to help fuel our educational programs by donating vehicles that they no longer need or use.”
