P.S. we didn’t make these up! They're all real donors, with real experiences.

William C.
The pickup and follow through was excellent
By William C., Frederica  DE (I donated a 1991 Toyota Camry)

Overall, I am not sure, though in general, the pickup and follow through on the receipt for donation purposes was excellent. I was told that the price my car sold for would be make known to me rather than just taking a maximum 500dollar deduction for income tax reporting purposes. I am sure my car will sell quickly and for a good price.I would hope that the selling price of my donated car would be the deductible I would use for income tax reporting.

John R.
I got rid of my car and got a great deduction
By John R., Wilmington  DE (I donated a 1998 Toyota Camry)

You guys did great. I got rid of my car and got a great deduction

Timmy H.
Very simple operation
By Timmy H., Camden  DE (I donated a 2002 Chrysler Sebring)

Made the donation on line. Very simple opertion. The car was pickedup on time and as scheduled. No problems. Driver was very efficient and friendly. Got the receipt on time and am now ready to include donation on my taxes. Very fair good operation. Would recommend to friends who might donate used vehicles.

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.

Packages for the Holidays

Our volunteers have a great time assembling fun-filled holiday packages that are sent to thousands of Kars4Kids families, making the holiday season a joyous one for them and their children. Edible goodies and other delights await in the beautiful packages that they find on their doorsteps.

Weekend Retreats

Throughout the year, we hold several weekend retreats for the children in our programs. It's an opportunity for them to get together with friends in a warm, upbeat atmosphere. They come back from the exciting weekend in the country refreshed, reinvigorated and ready to throw themselves back into their studies.

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 pick up a vehicle without a title in Delaware. We just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.

In the following counties you may not need to sign any paperwork at all. Just provide a proof of ownership (such as copy of registration or insurance card): Kent, New Castle, Sussex
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:
A MV213 Form must be completed, please include the tag number and expiration of tag.

Applications for a duplicate title can be made in person at your local DMV office or you can submit all documentation and fees, in certified form, by mail to:

State of Delaware
Division of Motor Vehicles
P.O. Box 698
Dover, DE 19903

The sample title document to the left of this paragraph has a blue arrow. Sign where the arrow appears using the name listed on the front page of your car title. The title document should be given to the tow truck driver at the time your car is collected.
  1. Remove plates
    License plates must be surrendered to the Division of Motor Vehicles prior to canceling insurance.

  2. Return plates
    Tags may be mailed to the Division of Motor Vehicles along with a note explaining that the tags are being surrendered because you’ve donated your car to Kars4kids. You can deliver the plates via person to your closest DMV office or return the plates via mail.

    Mailing address: Division of Motor Vehicles
    Uninsured Motorist Section
    P O Box 698
    Dover, DE 19903

  3. Seller’s Report of Sale
    As a donor you’ll need to complete a seller’s report of sale. The notice is attached to the bottom of your title. You should then return the form to your Delaware Motor Vehicle office. If your title is missing the sales form, you can pick one up at you local DMV office too.

  4. Stop insurance
    Cancel your insurance once your car has been towed.
