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.

Back-To-School Motivation

The teen dropout rate is higher than ever. Kars4Kids works to motivate teens to hang in there for the duration by organizing a backpack giveaway and street fair with live music, dancing, free food, and fun. We believe these events keep teens excited about learning and helps them to stay on track.

Keeps Kids Warm

It breaks the heart to see children inadequately dressed against the winter chill. Kars4Kids makes it a point of distributing much-needed winter coats so that no child has to shiver. Warm winter clothing is a basic need for children if we want them to grow up healthy and whole.

Still have questions?

I want to donate a car in Kentucky but I'm missing my title. Is my car still eligible for donation?
We can pick up a vehicle in Kentucky 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:
Application is made at your local county clerk's office. Application for title/registration (VTR form # TC96-182 [PDF - 61KB]) must be completed, signed by all registered owners and notarized.

For additional details visit: http://countyclerk.meadecounty.ky.gov/mv/title/duptitle.htm
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.
Where do I sign my Kentucky title?
Kentucky Title ZOOM IN You will need to sign and have the title notarized in the presence of a notary public. 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 document. The title document should be given to the tow truck driver at the time your car is collected.
