About Good News Garage

Good News Garage was one of the first nonprofit social enterprise car donation programs in the U.S. The mission of Good News Garage is to create economic opportunity by providing affordable and reliable transportation options to low-income individuals and families. Since its founding in Burlington, Vermont, in 1996 Good News Garage has provided more than 4,600 New England families with donated vehicles empowering clients to move out of poverty and into financial independence and social stability.
 
Good News Garage is a win-win solution for donors, clients, and communities. Car recipients are able to more forward in their lives, donors receive free towing and a generous tax deduction (up to fair market value if the car is awarded to a family), local automotive businesses are utilized and communities are strengthened. Unlike the most car donation organizations that sell every vehicle and hire a for-profit middleman, Good News Garage allows you to maximize your impact, because our mission is to repair and provide as many cars as possible to local families.

Good News Garage tows donated cars free-of-charge and has car donation drop-off locations in New Hampshire and Vermont. Donate your car online, or call Good News Garage toll-free at 877.GIVE.AUTO (877.448.3288). All vehicle donations are eligible for a tax deduction. To learn more, please visit our donation FAQ page.

Good News Garage is a member of Ascentria Care Alliance, one of the largest human service organizations in New England. With 60-plus program locations throughout the region, Ascentria is creating measurable, positive impact in communities by empowering people to reach beyond their current circumstances and realize new possibilities.
