I've never donated a car, but with other donations, the charity basically
asked me what I thought it was worth, and gave me a donation receipt for
that amount.  A while back the juvenile diabetes foundation was asking
for donations or items to auction, I bought a brand new TV/CD combo at
BJ's for $240 to donate, they gave me a donation receipt for $375, which
was what a similar unit was advertised for at a chain retailer, didn't
even ask me what I paid for it.

Plenty of organizations take cars, and they'll probably give you a
receipt for a couple of bucks above book if the car actually runs.  Most
of the cars they get are sh*tboxes that need to be towed away.  

Choose the charity you'd like to help and give them a call.
