Donate any car, truck, RV, or boat, in any condition, from any location, to help support BYLP and its efforts and benefit from a tax deduction at the same time. It's quick, easy and a win-win giving opportunity. What better way to get rid of an old vehicle than by turning it into resources needed to support youth participants of BYLP?
The BYLP Vehicle Donation Program is a free service. It does not matter what condition the vehicle is in or where it is located. The vehicle will be picked up, sold and a tax receipt will be provided for record keeping purposes. Vehicle donation can be done by phone at (877) 999-8322 or online.
Do you have a birthday coming up? Weddings, anniversaries, race days, and graduations all make great occasions to raise funds.
Set up your own personal fundraising campaign on behalf of BYLP on Facebook or otherwise to share your passion for BYLP and collect donations. Tell everyone you know online and in real life and ask them to donate in honor of your special fundraising campaign.
BYLP is always accepting volunteer applications. Flexible hours are available and training provided and benefits include free museum memberships, discounts at the Museum Store, invitations to volunteer appreciation events and much more!
