Vehicles donated on this site will benefit Activated Ministries, a nonprofit Christian Ministry classified with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and are tax deductible.
In most cases we need the title to the vehicle. But, if you do not have title papers you can apply for a replacement title before donating your vehicle. Please visit the Indiana BMV web site to obtain the necessary forms before donating: Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
If you are unable for some reason to apply for a duplicate title we can apply for one on your behalf if you complete the following steps:
1. Download, print, complete and sign the following Indiana Power of Attorney Form
2. List the social security numbers of each owner listed on the title in the space below the official form and have the Power of Attorney notarized by a Notary Public.
3. Include your VIN number in your vehicle donation submission so that we can verify the title history of the vehicle.
For information on the release of liability for vehicles donated in Indiana please contact your loval BMV office. For additional information, please refer to the Indiana BMV web site: Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
The following vehicles do NOT require a title in Indiana: Snowmobiles, ATV's, mopeds and any trailer purchased before 1990.
To properly transfer a title, the donor(s) must sign the release on the title and complete the assignment to the new owner. If there is an "AND" conjunction on the face of the title, ALL owners must release the title. With an "OR" conjunction, only one of the owners is required to release the title. The odometer reading and "selling" date should be filled in and the sale price should read "gift". For more information on title process visit Title Processing Information in Indiana.
What do I do with the plates on my donated vehicle?
You should remove the license plates from the vehicle at the time of pickup. It is not mandatory for the plates to be returned to the BMV but if you are eligible for and would like to collect the excise tax refund, you need to return either the plates or the registration card to the BMV.
