When donating anywhere in Illinois, ACTION DONATION SERVICES® has the BEST PROGRAM for maximizing your potential tax deduction!


Donate a Car in ChicagoAction Donation Services® takes every reasonable action to increase the sales price of donations! This is accomplished by “repairing” and selling property whenever feasible in either retail or wholesale markets – whichever will bring the best price. It is possible that ADS could be the only car and property donation agent in Illinois processing donated property using methods that can dramatically increase your tax deduction and increase the cash flowing to the selected charity!






Donate a Boat in ChicagoMost other programs do very little to increase the worth of donated property – they pick up and remove a used car, boat or other property and auction it off at wholesale prices -- or they dispose of it at a recycler. ADS will do a lot more as long as it is profitable for our client charity. Donors in most cases because of new tax laws are restricted to a deduction that represents the gross sales price of their donation when sold (there are some exceptions). Enhancing the selling price of donations as a result can often create a greater tax deduction for the person donating. Whenever financially feasible we sell donations RETAIL in order to get a higher price for the donation. Most of our competitors only sell at wholesale auctions. We send all the necessary IRS receipts to the donor promptly when property is sold. Donors should always check with their tax advisor before reporting tax deductions as a result of making a property donation.


 If you desire, we may be able to provide you with a partial cash payment for offering a “high worth” donation. It is possible for you to receive some cash and receive a tax deduction for certain types of donations! We love to handle high worth motorhomes, yachts, semi-trucks and trailers. The Action Donation Services® team is totally dedicated to providing unequaled service to all donors.


Action Donation Services will make significant material improvements to donated property (whenever financially beneficial to the client charity) in order to make available the maximum legal tax deduction to the donor and to increase the net to the client charity. These examples are typical of the effort put into MAXIMIZING THE VALUE of charity donations handled by our service.

Call Action Donation Services® to Learn if your Vehicle, RV, Motorhome, Boat, or other Property Merits Receiving a Partial Cash Payment.

Some trucks, motorhomes, vehicles or high value boats may qualify for a "partial cash payment " to the donor at the same time providing the donor with a legal tax deduction. The IRS refers to this type of a donation as a "bargain sale". It is perfectly acceptable to the IRS when properly structured. The option of a "partial cash payment" is provided by Action Donation Services® to help their charity clients and donors. It may be possible for the donor to receive some cash as well as a legal tax deduction! We know of no competitor currently that is offering this option. If you have an interest in finding out if your proposed donation meets the requirements for a partial cash payment, telephone us using our toll free number (1 866 244-8464) or complete the ADS on-line evaluation form and we will quickly inform you whether the donation you are contemplating is acceptable to your selected charity. This process will only take you a few moments and there is no obligation whatsoever to make a donation. You should of course talk with your tax advisor before claiming any significant charitable deduction.
