AOPA's Foundation takes in several dozen planes a year.  They are all in annual and airworthy.  Donors give them to the foundation for the tax benefits and the ease of not having to deal with the sale of the plane.  

Not to mention the donors probably believed in the cause.

We donated a car this year to charity in part for the tax benefit / in part for the simplicity/ but we specifically chose a cause we believe in.

This 'cause' being AOPA?

Yes - in our case we gave a car to an entirely different cause - a homeless shelter.

just saying....the Mooney Summit, Inc. will also accept planes for donation and the proceeds will go to help downed Mooney Pilots' and their families. If interested in making a donation like that, contact me or Zeke Durica zeke at ensignspars.com

After all, it is the season to be giving :) 

Merry Christmas everyone

Isn't giving your plane away like giving yourself a gift? No more bills for annuals, fuel, avionics, landing fees, subscriptions, prop overhauls, unexpected repairs, emergency ADs, oil changes -- ah the list goes on and on.

and don't forget the tax credit if giving to a charity like the Mooney Summit, Inc. You can deduct the fair value of the plane, which might work out to more than what you can get after you get beat down, fix all that's discovered in a PPI, advertise, spend time jacking with tire kickers, etc.

If you donate to a 503c , and the donation , is used for its intended purpose for three years , you will get a tax credit for the appraised value , which is always substantially more than you can sell it for...
