Ways to Donate

In-Kind & Vehicle Donations

We recognize charity takes many forms

The people who receive your charity have many needs. An in-kind contribution or donated vehicle can help meet these.

In-Kind Donations

In-kind donations include material goods as well as professional services.

Many CCSOMO ministries benefit from in-kind donations and collection drives from individuals, businesses, and organizations. Examples of needed items include books, diapers and baby items, and household goods. These items are shared with clients.

Vehicle Donations

Interested in donating your vehicle to an organization you believe in? Donate your car and show your support of Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri. It’s easy to make a contribution that makes a difference!

How do I donate a vehicle?

The vehicle you are wishing to donate must be in good, working order. Many of the vehicles donated to Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri are given to clients in our programs who are working toward self-sufficiency. Vehicles that require mechanical work are not ideal for helping clients secure their path toward a brighter future.

In addition, the vehicle must have a clear title, free of any liens. Finally, the vehicle must have a current state safety inspection, obtained 30 days prior to the donation date. or less.

To learn more about making a vehicle donation, please call our office at 417.720.4213, or email our Development Team at
