What Is Vehicles for Vision?

Vehicles for Vision formed in 1986 as an effort to raise money for CABVI. It accepts a wide range of vehicles whether they are working or not:

Vehicles for Vision accepts donations within a 35-mile radius of the greater Utica and Syracuse areas. If you are outside of this area, you can visit www.donationline.com and the donation will come directly to CABVI. It is a large area from Canastota New York in the west to Little Falls in the east, Hamilton in the south to Boonville in the north. If you would like to make an appointment to complete the paperwork, please contact Steve Gannon at stepheng@cabvi.org."

According to their website, the majority of vehicle donations receive a $499 tax write off. You can read more and learn all about this program online with CABVI online here.
