Tax-Deductible Donations

Contributions and gifts to the Sierra Club Foundation Atlantic Chapter Fund are tax-deductible as charitable contributions, as they support grants for public education, research and public interest litigation necessary to further the Sierra Club's conservation goals. There are several areas where you can dedicate your funds:

Donate your Car, Boat, Motorcyle to the Sierra Club Foundation Vehicle Donation Program

Donate your vehicle and support the charitable programs of the Atlantic Chapter. When you donate a vehicle that you no longer need or use, you reduce your impact, and receive a tax deduction. CARS will pick up most cars, trucks, trailers, boats, RVs, motorcycles, off-road vehicles, and heavy equipment, making it easy for you to support the Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter's mission to move toward a greener future.
