Where To Buy

Goodwill of Greater Washington sends donated vehicles to Capital Auto Auction. After the donated vehicles are sold, Goodwill receives the proceeds from the sale for use towards our many mission-focused programs.

Looking for the best place to buy a vehicle? Need a fair price to fit your budget? Goodwill has been partnering with Capital Auto Auction for over 20 years. Every Goodwill donated vehicle that you purchase helps to fund job training and employment programs. You don’t just go home with a fantastic deal, you also leave knowing that you also made an enormous difference in the lives of those less fortunate in your local community.
