Vehicle donation

Do you have a vehicle you no longer use? If so, please consider donating your car, boat, RV or pick-up to St. Joseph’s Indian School!

A vehicle donation to St. Joseph’s Indian School is convenient and tax-deductible. But most importantly, you will be helping improve the lives of the Lakota (Sioux) boys and girls who are dreaming of a brighter future.

St. Joseph’s Indian School has joined forces with Vehicles for Charity to help us. They will contact you to set up a time for the vehicle pick-up and there is no cost to you. Make sure to have your title transfer papers ready to give them and they will supply you with a tax-deductible receipt when the vehicle is picked up.

If you have additional questions, visit the frequently asked questions page.
