Your Tax-Deductible Donation Helps Save Species
Your Problem, Our Possibility
Puzzling over what to do with a vehicle you don't need anymore? We have a solution. Donate it to be auctioned off for the benefit of FONZ and its commitment to support the Smithsonian's National Zoo's mission to save species.
What We Can Use
You can donate cars, trucks, vans, RVs, motorcycles, boats, ATVs, and more.
How to Help
Complete the form below, telling us about your vehicle. We'll get in touch within 24 hours to schedule a pick-up time. It's that easy!
Where the Money Goes
When your vehicle sells at auction, up to 80 percent of the proceeds will go to FONZ. We'll use the funds to help save species through educational and fun experiences for our guests, inspire our members, and much more.
You can deduct the actual sale price of your vehicle (or $499, whichever is larger) from your taxes.
Please contact Jamie Palumbo if you have any questions about the FONZ Vehicle Donation Program.
