You've come to the right place – our Kars4kids crew in Illinois can pick up virtually any car donation, regardless of condition, and usually without a title too.
Take 2 minutes to fill out a donation form - online or over the phone.
Within 24 hours we’ll call you to arrange a convenient pickup time.
Here’s what our Illinois donors had to say about how donating went for them.
P.S. we didn’t make these up! They're all real donors, with real experiences. (we even left the typos in :)
My experience with your organization has been wonderful. The people I worked with were truely professional and the pick up of my car went as smoothly as possible. I am so glad that my donation will help someone in need.
The only gliche involved arranging the car pick up. Your website seemed to have a flaw in the field for entering phone numbers. I entered both my cell number and my home phone number (wrongly it turned out) but your organization appeared only to receive the home number. The tow company was not able to reach me although I had also filled in my cell number. In any case, once we arranged the pick up, it all went smoothly.
Everything went very well. The tow truck was here when promised, and the operator was very polite. The whole thing was done in a matter of minutes! I will donate another car to Kars4Kids when that time comes.

Some of the donations we‘ve received have really shocked us, but not so the all terrain vehicle donated by Tom L. of Waukegan, Il. This ATV had the best shock absorbers we‘ve ever had to pleasure to experience.
