What kind of donations do you accept and NOT accept?

Vehicles When you donate a vehicle, you have the choice to appoint it to either a youth or family in need, the use for TOY operations, or sold at an auction. If you donate a vehicle, you, or the donor will need to transfer the title of the vehicle to Treasure Our Youth and remove license plates and registration documents before we can accept the car. The car must be clean and in good condition.
Property You can also donate property or real estate to Treasure Our Youth. The property will be used for your chosen supporting cause such as a computer lab for students or a headquarters business office for Treasure Our Youth. The deed or title should be transferred from you, or the donor to the organization. As the donor, you generally receive a tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the property and that deduction may be carried forward for five years.
