Our client charities love our property donation service!
“The Action Donation Services property donation program is great! Since May of 2003 they have sent us a substantial amount of money to help us deliver our Special Olympics sports programs to our community of athletes. Their program takes minimal staff time; they do everything for us and send us a check monthly. They are absolutely wonderful with our donors and they maximize the selling price of the donations. It’s a fabulous partnership for our local Special Olympics program. I encourage everyone to become a part of the Action Donation Services property donation program – it’s a win-win situation for all.”
-- Roxane Thompson, Director of Strategic Partnerships, Special Olympics, San Diego County --
"RaceLegal was formed in 1998 in San Diego as a non-profit dedicated to providing a legal and safe alternative to illegal street racing. This community based program has produced fantastic results. Year 2003 data show a 99% reduction in organized illegal street racing activity in San Diego and a 79% improvement in illegal street racing involved crash mortality/morbidity. Year 2005 has produced a remarkable 94% improvement in street racing related mortality/morbidity when compared to the baseline year of 2002. The program saves lives! TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR PROGRAM VISIT OUR WEBSITE: www.RaceLegal.com <http://www.racelegal.com/> and watch our 5 minute action packed on-line video: Asphalt Junkies: Race Track, not Street. Then donate that car, boat, RV, trailer, or motorcycle that is no longer needed! We need all the community support that we can get in order to keep this life saving program going. That is why we retained Action Donation Services in 2004 to process our auto, boat, RV and motorcycle donations. They take great care of our donors and they take care of all the paperwork for us and provide our donors with the required IRS receipts. We know they are an honest organization and try their best to maximize the value of donations by “fixing up” donations when feasible to benefit RaceLegal and our donors (larger potential tax deduction!). We can recommend them to donors without reservation."

"We have been using Action Donation Services to process our auto, boat, RV, and motorcycle donations since April of 2004. We appreciate their professional, prompt and thorough handling of each donation. We are impressed with their extra mile efforts to maximize the selling price of donations whenever possible by repairing or otherwise improving donations in order to increase the return to our organization and increase the potential tax deduction possible to the donor. We also, appreciate the ability to go on-line 24/7 to view donor records. Action takes care of everything for us including sending the appropriate IRS required receipts to donors as soon as property is sold. The ADS program helps us to provide values-based programs to more than 10,000 young men and women in the Glendale, Burbank, North Hollywood, Sun Valley, Sunland, Tujunga, La Crescenta, Montrose, La Canada Flintridge and Eagle Rock communities of Los Angeles County."

“Action Donation Services has been such a blessing to our charitable organization. We were fortunate to be the first recipient of property donations processed by ADS, and we have a long and happy relationship with them. Over the years, funds from ADS have been put to good use serving the emotionally disturbed teen girls with whom we work. The process is simple, the rewards are phenomenal, and the experience has been very positive for us. The staff at ADS is kind, courteous, and always willing to help. I highly recommend Action Donation Services to charities and donors alike. Choosing Action Donation Services was one of the best moves we ever made. I am confident that you will feel the same way I do”.

The purpose of the "Friends" is to enhance the basic program required of all licensed facilities by providing a higher quality of programming, by broadening the public awareness of the value of adult day programs, to implement intergenerational programming, and to provide scholarship assistance for families who do not qualify for MediCal assistance. Action Donation Services has been processing our auto, boat and RV donations since 2004 in a professional and competent manner. We have a small and very busy staff and appreciate the fact that ADS takes care of everything for us ... they schedule pickups, handle all paperwork, do title transfers, and they provide prompt IRS required receipts to donors as soon as property is sold. We in return try to get the word out to our supporters in any reasonable way we can that we are accepting property donations. We think the folks at Action are great and we can recommend Action Donation Services to donors and charities alike."

We can recommend them without reservation. ”

"Thanks to our relationship with Action Donation Services, The American Red Cross has been able to put donated vehicle, boat, and RV proceeds to work in direct benefit to our community in emergency response services, preparedness training, and other direct program operations more efficiently than we would have dreamed possible.
