Greetings from Car Angel! We would like to thank you for your recent donation. We are sending you this package to
complete the donation process. Enclosed you will find a questionnaire, our official IRS confirmation letter, a copy of a
check we have sent to aid the sick and a disposable camera. After you send back the requested items, your item will
be sold on our charity website and then picked up. In order to begin this process we will need your help. Everything we
need from you is listed below. Please follow the directions below.
In this package you will find a disposable camera. In order for Car Angel to sell your item, we will need an adequate
set of photos. The following are notes on what to do with your disposable camera. We know not everyone
is a professional photographer.
- We need a full evaluation of your vehicle with photographs – think 360 degrees INTERIOR AND
- We must have good interior shots, PLEASE USE THE FLASH IN DARK PLACES
- If something on your vehicle is broken, we need a photograph of it
- A good picture of the engine, if there is no engine, a picture of where the engine should be
- A shot of the entire vehicle from the side.
- Photos of any extra items that are included with the vehicle (i.e. spare tires, jack, radio, tool
- If your vehicle is covered we need photos with the COVER OFF

photographs would be nice.

We need to have a clean Title for every vehicle that is donated. If your vehicle has a lien we can not take it. If your
vehicles lien has been released it needs to be signed off on the title or we need an original lien release letter. Please
sign your Title as the seller. If the title is not in your name please try to get it in your name or provide appropriate
documentation showing the transfer of ownership from the previous donor to yourself, such as a Bill of Sale. If you do
not want to send your original title we MUST have a photocopy.
The second page of this donation packet is a car questionnaire. We need the entire questionnaire filled out
COMPLETELY and ACCURATELY. We use the information provided by you when listing the item through our
auction, the more details of the vehicles condition the better we can accurately represent the vehicle. We appreciate
honest and complete disclosure of all problems with a vehicle.
Thank you for your time! Please call 1-800-227-2643 if you have any questions. If you have not already received a
receipt through e-mail, please keep this letter as proof of donation until your donation sells. After your donation is
picked up, call us for the deduction value and then visit secure.carangel.org to obtain your donation receipt. Thank you
for helping us help others
