Donate Your Car Donate a Car Canada accepts Vehicle Donations for HomeStart Foundation. Free towing is provided in most areas across Canada, or you can drop off your vehicle to maximize your donation. When you donate your car, truck, RV, boat, or motorcycle to us through Donate A Car Canada, it will either be recycled or sold at auction (depending on its condition, age and location). Donate a Car Canada will look after all the details to make it easy for HomeStart Foundation to benefit. After your vehicle donation is complete, we will send you a tax receipt and will put your gift to good use. Please click here to donate a vehicle.
