Donate Equipment

Turn your Tractor into a donation today!

If you’re looking for the best way to dispose of an old tractor that you no longer need and is just occupying space on your property, you’ve come to the right place. We at FarmSahel will gladly haul off your equipment quickly and at no cost to you. We will then ship it to Burkina Faso and donate it to women farmers to help move them from subsistence farming.

 

For now, we only accept donated tractors from the following states:

  1. New York 

  2. New Jersey 

  3. Pennsylvania

  4. Connecticut  

 

Why Donating a Tractor to FarmSahel is the Right Choice.

Before you decide to sell your used tractor or take it to the nearest scrapyard, take time to know why you should donate to FarmSahel:

 

You can trust us.

FarmSahel is committed to helping women farmers of Burkina Faso, and your used tractor will help increase the yield of these women, increase their income and move them out of poverty.  

 

You will not have to deal with the hassles of selling.

If you do not want to go through the long and stressful process of trying to sell a piece of used farm equipment, then simply donate that tractor to FarmSahel. This way, you will avoid the hassles and costs of having your tractor fixed to make it sellable, coming up with “for sale” ads in the paper, and answering repeated inquiries from prospective buyers.

 

Our donation process is extremely easy.

Our donation process is truly straightforward. You will not have to spend more than 5 minutes completing the most critical part of it, which involves you providing us with the basic information about your tractor and yourself. Once we have these details, we will handle everything else on your behalf.

 

We will haul off your tractor at no cost to you.

We will assign a licensed towing company to pick up your vehicle at a location of your choice and at a time and date convenient to you. You won’t even have to be around when we pick it up as long as you tell us beforehand where we can find its keys and title.

 

You will get a chance to reduce your taxable income.

Since you’re donating to IRS-determined 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations, your tractor donation is tax-deductible on your itemized federal tax return at the limit allowed by the IRS.

 

You can follow online, and see your equipment in use by local farmers in Burkina Faso.

Why is your help important?

 

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, Africa has less than two tractors per 1000 ha of cropland. 70% of the farmers cultivate parcels of less than two hectares by hoe.

 

Most smallholder farmers in Africa grow a mix of crops using traditional farming methods, rely on saved seeds and those purchased from local sources, and use little by way of external inputs, such as synthetic fertilizers.

 

Their struggles are typical. Pests perpetually threaten their family’s food security and the small income they earn from selling part of their harvest. 

 

Rather than sending money, we collect your donated equipment and deliver it and train rural farmers to use it.  

Your used farming equipment along with our training will help solve this problem. 

 

Mechanization can help unlock underutilized agricultural potential. Our challenge at FarmSahel is to come up with ways that enable smallholder-farmers who can’t afford to buy their own equipment to access equipment like tractors.
