Vehicle Donations

donate your car to the Zoo Vehicle donations are a hassle-free and easy way to give a tax-deductible contribution to the Oakland Zoo. Proceeds from the sale of your unwanted car, truck, or RV go directly towards the Zoo's mission of conservation and education.

The Oakland Zoo has partnered with Car Donation Services, a licensed and registered company, which has been in business for over 20 years, to handle our vehicle donations.
