The Vehicle Donation Program is a way for donors to contribute used cars, trucks, vans, mobile homes and boats to OCBC. The program enables donors to help OCBC while receiving a tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the vehicle.  The OCBC Endowment Fund has entered into an agreement with Frank & Harold's Used Cars (F&H) to handle the pickup, removal, sale or disposal of donated vehicles.   Use the attached form below.
