Donate Experimental Aircraft
Homebuilt Aircraft Donations to Charity
Donate Amateur-built Aircraft or Kit Planes
Donate a homebuilt plane to charity for a great tax deduction and to help others less fortunate. Aircraft Donation is one of only a few charitable organizations that accepts amateur-built / kit plane / homebuilt airplane donations. Whether you assembled your kit plane from larger composite parts or built it from scratch, you can donate experimental aircraft to our charity for the highest Appraised Value Tax Deduction allowed by the IRS. But most importantly your homebuilt plane donation allows us to help families in need get back on their feet.
Our charitable program is rare but effective: not many charities know what to do with large donations such as aircraft. For years we have handled a wide variety of aircraft donations from heavy air buses to homebuilt planes like yours. We have an A-Team of pilots and mechanics across the US who can revamp your plane if it has seen better days, and you get the maximum allowed tax deduction possible!
Homebuilt aircraft are not for the faint-hearted and unfortunately kit airplanes rarely are profitable when it comes to selling. As a pilot and owner of a homebuilt aircraft you know that they demand a level of skill that frankly not many people possess. While this is a testament to your piloting abilities, it makes homebuilt aircraft hard to sell. After spending money and your time with the build, most pilots decide to upgrade to cabin class, and are ready to sell.
Most classified ads proudly state how all necessary inspection and flight tests have been performed and include an airworthiness certificate. Complete aircraft history including build log and all the bells and whistles; full engine, airframe, avionics, well cared for with an excellent maintenance history. Sound familiar? Unfortunately a quick sale of your home-built aircraft doesn’t usually happen.
If you would rather not own your homebuilt aircraft, selling it can truly be a pain. When you donate experimental aircraft to our 501c3 nonprofit charity, you will help out worthy causes in need and receive an appraised value tax deduction, which can sometimes be a lot more valuable than selling it yourself.

AircraftDonation.org was started as a funding project for Giving Center (EIN# 46-1883892), an IRS-approved 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that operates nationwide. Giving Center was created to help bridge the gap between those in the community who have the means and wish to help, with those who are in dire need of a helping hand and a little grace. We have a team of professional pilots and individuals with both the technical and legal experience to assist you in the donation of your aircraft.
