Get More Mileage Out of Your Car

Looking for more ways to help children in need? Donate your old or unused car, truck, motorcycle, RV, boat or other vehicle to El Ranchito de los Niños. In three easy steps, you'll be on the road to helping us help more children. Your final destination? A year-end tax deduction!

El Ranchito has partnered with Give Hope a Ride, a nonprofit that serves other nonprofits through a vehicle auction program. Every second Saturday of the month, Give Hope a Ride has an auction on their premises. Check out their website at

Step 1:
Simply call El Ranchito at 505-565-4470 or Give Hope a Ride at 
505-277-2066. Whether your car runs or not, we'll take it.

Step 2:
Just drive your vehicle in or Give Hope a Ride will schedule a time to have it towed at no cost to you, and the title and sales paperwork will be taken care of for you.

Step 3:
In a few short weeks, you'll get a receipt with the donation value for tax purposes.
Your donation will help us continue our important work for at-risk children. El Ranchito receives, on average, 70%-75% percent of the proceeds from donated vehicles sold at auction or for salvage.

One car really does make a difference!
We hope you'll consider donating your vehicle -- or spreading the word to others -- and help provide much needed support for our children.

El Ranchito de los Niños is a children's home dedicated to keeping sibling groups together who might otherwise be separated in foster care. The children are raised as a family in a rural farm setting, taught responsibility and educated as a means of building a foundation and breaking the cycle.  The home is a non-profit charity funded 100% by private donations, licensed by the State of NM CYFD and certified by the NM Christian Child Care Association.  El Ranchito considers all children regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, religion or disability.
