How do I donate my vehicle?
Simply fill out our online vehicle donation form and you will be contacted by the Greater Milwaukee Auction for additional information and to schedule pick-up or tow. We are currently limited to vehicles located in Southeast Wisconsin that are within 50 miles of the Greater Milwaukee Auto Auction.
Will you pick-up or tow my vehicle?
Yes, the Greater Milwaukee Auto auction will contact you to schedule pick-up or tow. Your vehicle must be within 50 miles of the Greater Milwaukee Auto Auction in order to be picked up or towed.
However, if you are able to drop off your vehicle with the title, more money from your donation will go towards fighting hunger in Eastern Wisconsin. Please let the Greater Milwaukee Auto auction know if this is your preference.
Vehicles can be dropped off at:
Greater Milwaukee Auto Auction 8711 W. Brown Deer Rd. Milwaukee, WI 53224
If closed when you arrive, you may use the key drop box.
Will I get a tax deduction?
The tax deduction generally applies to those who itemize deductions on their Form 1040 federal tax return. The amount of the deduction depends on the actual sale price of the vehicle. Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin will send you an acknowledgement letter with the gross sale amount after auction. Please check with a tax professional regarding your personal tax benefit.

What if I can’t find my title?
If your vehicle is titled in Wisconsin, complete the steps for a replacement certificate through the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation. If your vehicle was titled in another state, we must have a replacement title from that state (check that state’s DMV website to find out how to get a duplicate title).
