Still have questions?

What is the amount of the tax deduction I will receive?
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.
What can I donate?
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.
I want to donate a car in Hawaii but I'm missing my title. Is my car still eligible for donation?
We can pick up a vehicle in Hawaii without a title. We will just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.
How can I replace my missing title?
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:
Print out and complete the Application for duplicate motor vehicle certificate of title.
Where do I sign my Hawaii title?
Hawaii Title ZOOM IN 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.
How do I transfer the ownership of my car?
  1. Leave the plates on the car
    The generic license plates remain with the vehicle, since they are assigned to the vehicle and not the owner. The special and specialty license plates belong to the owner of the vehicle and they should do a plate and emblem replacement before donating the vehicle so they have generic plates on the vehicle when donating the vehicle.

  2. Notice of Transfer
    You must submit a Notice of Transfer form within 10 days of the donation to the county motor vehicle registration office where the vehicle was last registered.
    If the vehicle is registered in the name of a business, a letter of authorization must be on file at the motor vehicle registration office naming you as an authorized person to donate vehicles on behalf of the business. If the business is a partnership, all partners must sign the letter of authorization; and if the business is a corporation, a corporate officer must sign the letter of authorization.

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

HI fun factsNot exactly vintage, no, but a 1967 Toyota Land Cruiser did set a record for the oldest car donation ever received from the state of Hawaii. And no, no orchid leis wrapped around the antenna. We were as disappointed as anyone :)
