Lightbulb Need recommendations! (Donating airplane to charity)

Does anyone know and has used a charity to donate a plane with? I have an old Cessna that I am considering donating for the tax deduction, but would love to hear from people who have gone through the process. Any recommended charities?

Maybe a local chapter of EAA? Vocational high school?

How about the youth program that introduces young people to flying? Experienced pilots take the kids for a free ride and show them planes. They have camps, rallies, and help Scouts get aviation badges.

It's called "Young Eagles."

The Internal Revenue Service has established standards for charitable contributions. See Charitable Contribution Deductions page on irs.gov, please.
