Nancy J.
I would gladly donate again
By Nancy J., Long Beach  NY (I donated a 1990 Toyota Corolla)

I was happy to donate the car for Kars4Kids. And If I have another problem with one I would gladly donate it.

Joel T.
KARS4KIDS DID A GREAT JOB ALL AROUND
By Joel T., Brooklyn  NY (I donated a 1995 Nissan Maxima)

THE EXPERIENCE WAS TOP NOTCH. I FELT THAT KARS 4 KIDS DID A GREAT JOB ALL AROUND. WHEN I WAS GETTING OFF TRACK IN WHAT I NEEDED TO PROVIDE (SINCE WE HAD LOST THE TITLE DOCUMENTS), K 4 K CAME THROUGH FOR US. I WOULD VERY MUCH RECOMMEND KARS 4 KIDS TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY BECAUSE I WAS MORE THAN FULLY SATISFIED. THAT IS NOT SOMETHING I CAN OFTEN SAY IN DEALING WITH SERVICE-ORIENTED ORGANIZATIONS!

I wish every company had people like theirs
By Lleka E., Yonkers  NY (I donated a 2002 Dodge Intrepid)

I wish every company had people like they do to represent them.

How your car helps

Our charity programs are the essence of what we do. We are thankful to be able to give back to many local communities across North America and to bring educational opportunities to so many children, with the help of our sister charity Oorah. We're a registered nonprofit Jewish organization. Learn about what we do and see our charity programs here.

Kars4kids Mentor Program
The Kars4Kids Vision

Kars4Kids‘ vision is to give our children the ability to succeed in life. We focus on educational, mentorship and year-round programs for our children, their families and their communities, looking at the big picture of our children‘s development and the environment they grow up in. We rely on thousands of volunteers to help us change the world, one child at a time.

Fun Escapades

Everyone needs to get away from it all once in a while. Even kids. That's why Kars4Kids designed the perfect "escape" for kids and their mentors, sending them to the famous Six Flags Great Escape amusement park in Lake George, New York. It was the perfect combination of fun, friends, and fearless riding of roller coasters!

Year Round Mentoring

Kids need mentoring all year round. In recognition of this fact, Kars4Kids creates inclusive programming for every season. From after school programs to summer camps, weekday and holiday retreats, no child is ever left to drift aimlessly. Our dedicated staff offers round the year, round the clock support for every child.

Still have questions?

The amount you can claim from the IRS as a tax deduction depends on the category applicable to you:
The IRS allows you to claim a tax deduction of:
a) The value of your vehicle up to $500. It is up to the donor to determine the fair market value.
b) The amount we sell your vehicle for - if it is more than $500.

Kars4kids is a classified 501(c)(3) charity organization. You can check with your tax advisor or accountant to determine the amount of your benefit. The deduction is of value only if the donor itemizes his or her deductions. For a more detailed overview the IRS publishes a Donors Guide to Car Donation.
We accept the following donations: car, snow plow, boat, bus, jet ski, truck, RV (motor home), commercial, airplane, van, trailer, motorcycle, ATV, tractor, and fleet donations. Sorry no kids.
We can usually pick up a vehicle in Alaska without a title. We will just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.
In almost all scenarios Kars4kids will apply for the new title for you. We'll handle all the paperwork and pay the title fees too.
If you'd prefer you may apply for a new title on your own. Here's how:
Complete and sign the form for an Affidavit of Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Title .
If you are unable to display and print the Affidavit of Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Title form and you are unable to visit your local DMV office, you can also write a letter requesting a duplicate title.The following information should be included in the letter: Your name, Complete/Correct Serial Number (VIN), Description of the vehicle that you are requesting a duplicate title for. Your signature must be notarized. There is also a $15 fee.
  1. License Plates
    Your plates should remain on the car. If your vehicle has personalized/specialty plates, remove the plates just before your car is picked up. Only Special Issue plates can be transferred. You’ll need to complete the following Vehicle Transaction Form in order to transfer the plates to a different car, that’s registered in your name. See http://doa.alaska.gov/dmv/plates/transfer.htm for more information.
