Changing Means of Transportation
JumpStart Program: JumpStart accepts the donation of reliable vehicles, providing tax deductible receipts to the donors, and transfers the inspected and/or repaired auto to an income eligible family or individual that needs transportation for employment or medical care. 

We do not sell ANY of the cars that are donated to JumpStart!  Every car we accept is given to people who really need it.
  Most car donation programs sell your car and a small amount of money actually finds its way back to programs or services that people really need.  With other car donation programs, most (and sometimes all) of your donation will end up in advertising or promotions.  Not with JumpStart!  100% of your car donation goes directly to the person who needs it the most!  In fact, we add money to make your donation even more affordable. The total cost of the vehicle to the final recipient is the title transfer fee, plus a maximum of $500 in actual repair expense to insure the car's reliability. 
There is never any cost to the car donor.

Who Benefits from JumpStart?

YOU!  Community members or businesses that donate a vehicle may be able to receive an income tax deduction based on its book value*.  PLUS, you can be assured that a low-income family in this community will utilize your donated vehicle!  Please keep in mind that all vehicles must pass a diagnostic check and be able to be repaired for a reasonable cost to be accepted by JumpStart.  

And Most Importantly:

Real people!  Those who qualify also benefit by receiving a donated vehicle at the cost of repairs and title transfer.  Having reliable transportation allows families to maintain their employment and, thus, increases their likelihood to become or remain self-sufficient. Qualifications for Recipients are they must be of low income; live in the Spring City/Phoenixville area of Chester County, Pennsylvania; be referred by a JumpStart cooperative member; demonstrate need for vehicle such as:  loss of employment, lack of access to employment, access to specialized medical care, etc.; and show the ability to secure and maintain car insurance.
