Affordable Cars for Working People
Do you live in Eastern Massachusetts and have a car, truck, or minivan you’re looking to replace or donate? Do you have an unused car sitting in a family member’s driveway?
Consider donating your used car to Second Chance Cars, a different kind of nonprofit car donation program. We provide affordable cars to Massachusetts low-income veterans, healthcare workers, and returning citizens (those reentering society from incarceration) so they can obtain living-wage jobs and reach their full potential.
We match used vehicles with someone who really needs one, and give the donors 100% of their car’s retail value as a tax deduction—the highest car tax deduction in Massachusetts. Learn more about us and our mission.
Why Donate To Us?
- Get the highest tax deduction for your car in MA
- Watch as your car changes someone else’s life
- Make a difference in your local community
Can your car help someone get to work?
If your car is located in Eastern Massachusetts, is gently used and has some life left in it, we want it.
Reach out about donating your car, even if your car needs some repairs, as we can probably fix it!
How to donate
It’s Easy to Donate Your Car to Us:
- Fill out and submit our quick online form
- We’ll reach out to schedule a pick-up
- We’ll send you a tax receipt for 100% of your car’s retail value

Second Chance Cars was honored on Veterans Day as the recipient of a Newman’s Own $30,000 grant in conjunction with the Fisher House Foundation and Military Times. We were one of six organizations selected internationally, recognized for our support of veterans, military service members, and their families. The selection committee was especially impressed with our innovative partnerships with local vocational schools that help us affordably and professionally refurbish our donated, used vehicles.
