Vehicle Donations

Mount Angel Abbey and Seminary seeks donations of used vehicles or golf carts in good condition.

  • Donated vehicles are used by monks and seminarians in their parish assignments and are not sold. Because the Abbey intends to make substantial use of the donated vehicles, you can qualify for a tax deduction. 
  • Golf carts are needed to transport visitors and monks with special needs around the Hilltop. 
  • There are special IRS rules that apply to vehicle donations. Therefore, you should consult your tax adviser for advice on your personal tax situation. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about donating your vehicle or golf chart.
