This method of donation has been popularized by Father Joe’s Village and Kars 4 Kids. Donating a car, boat or real estate is a convenient way to dispose of an asset at full value and to benefit from the resulting tax deduction in that amount. Simply call us, we’ll handle the paperwork, arrange for the pick-up and title change of the asset and provide you a receipt for your tax deduction. Please contact Jeff Zlotnik at 619-582-1100 or with questions or to arrange a donation.


On behalf of the Dharma Bum Temple, I send a sincere thank you to Frank Alvarez and Premier Automotive Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM of Buena Park. Through their Giving Hope Foundation they have made a very generous donation to support our work in the community. Giving Hope is a charitable non-profit organization housed and supported by Premier Automotive that provides food, clothing, shelter, fellowship, and freedom for the most vulnerable members of our society. My dear friend from college Frank Alvarez is an Operating Partner with Premier Automotive and has watched our work closely for the past few years. Frank has been kind enough to purchase all the cars donated to the DBT which helped fund our initial purchase of the new Temple and our ongoing programs. If you have a car to donate, sell or need a car, working with Frank is a tremendous benefit for us Dharma Bums. A percentage of funds from all cars sold gets put into the foundation to help various charities around the country. I am honored to call Frank my brother and grateful to their entire organization for supporting the Dharma Bum Temple. - Jeffrey Zlotnik, Co-Founder & CEO Dharma Bum Temple - May 8, 2019
