Adoption RI’s Car Donation Program
The proceeds from the donation of your car will directly benefit children in foster care in RI. You avoid the costs, responsibility and time of trying to sell the car yourself or investing in further repair costs.


1. With your title at hand, contact our automotive intermediary partner and let them know of your interest in donating your vehicle to benefit Adoption Rhode Island:
Company: Advanced Remarketing Service (ARS)
Contact: Amanda Nevins
Phone: 877-709-2277 x3103
email: anevitt@arscars.com

2. ARS will arrange fast free towing of your vehicle

3. At the time of pick-up, you will receive a receipt for the donation. Within thirty days, you will receive a donation acknowledgement and thank you letter from Adoption Rhode Island which will be part of your documentation for tax purposes.
Advance Remarketing Service maximizes each donation made to Adoption Rhode Island by limiting their administrative costs. This allows the highest percentage of your donation to go to ARI—and a child who deserves to be safe and loved in a family.
