Have you ever wondered what to do with that unwanted car, truck, trailer, SUV or boat?  Did you know you could donate it to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Fond du Lac County?  All money for the BBBS Cars for Kids’ Sake program stays here locally in Fond du Lac County and is used to support BBBS’ one-to-one mentoring program.  People like ‘Big’ Lindsey Balken and ‘Little’ David, see a direct benefit.  AND you can use the money you receive as a tax write off!  It’s a win/win no matter how you cut it!

Your vehicle can be picked up anywhere in Fond du Lac, free of charge and will be transported to the auto auction. If you live outside the city limits, call the BBBS office at 922-8200 to see if the vehicle can be picked up.  Most times it can be!  All that is needed is a signed and clear title along with the keys.

“The Big Brothers Big Sisters Cars for Kids’ Sake program is an easy way to support our program while at the same time getting a tax deduction write off,” said Tammy Young, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters.  “The process is super easy and is a win/win for everyone involved!”

Call the BBBS office at (920) 922-8200 or email [email protected] to schedule a pick up.  BBBS will send a letter of donation when the vehicle is sold. The entire amount of the sale can be deducted on your taxes.
