If you want to donate a car and you live in Indiana, you may want to print this page out. It is a list of charities that are either Indiana based or have chapters in The Hoosier State. These charities are also all recognized as 501(c)(3) charities by the IRS, so any donation to them that meets other tax deduction rules qualifies for a break on your income tax bill. These organizations have also all earned three or four-star status from the website Charity Navigator, which evaluates charitable organizations and gives them ratings based on fiscal responsibility and other factors.
