I am the alumni adviser for my fraternity at my alma mater, and, as our chapter expands, we are looking to get ourselves an official vehicle for the fraternity. While the idea of an old bus has been kicked around, I suggested against this, even though there is a massive “cool” factor to the idea, due to added maintenance, lack of available parts, special licensing, things like that. The next best thing would probably be a “people-mover” passenger van. These things are normally on a 3/4 ton chassis, can sit 10+, won’t take a CDL to drive, and you can easily find a trailer to tow behind it if you are moving goods or supplies in addition to people. The only thing I don’t know is, would be HOW to go about looking/asking for someone to donate us one. Since we’re non-profit, anything donated to us is a tax write-off for the person or organization doing the donating.
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
