Felicia B.
It was an over all positive experience
By Felicia B., Chalmette  LA (I donated a 1995 GMC Sierra 1500 Classic)

It was an over all positive experience. However, communication as to where to send title was not a strong point. I ended up sending it to another state, had to pay to get another paper notarized etc.

Ashley G.
The service was awesome!
By Ashley G., Lake Charles  LA (I donated a 1986 Buick LeSabre)

I believe what you do, did, when or how or whatever the situation is, you was great ! Especially for the purpose of what it was used for. If I know anyone who needs an old abandoned car or just any type of vehicle to be hauled off, I will recommend you because it's for a great cause! The services was awesome! Two thumbs up for kars4kids!

Brianne W.
If only I could donate more!
By Brianne W., Slidell  LA (I donated a 2002 Ford Focus)

Quick and very easy! If only I could donate more!

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.

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.

Feeding The Hungry

When kids are hungry, it's hard for them to concentrate in the classroom. We partnered with a local food bank to distribute food to local families, ensuring parents have access to the nutritious food items growing children need most. It's a lot of work to coordinate it all, but the reward is seeing happy, healthy, growing children.

Learning And Growth

We understand that learning isn't only about reading, writing, and arithmatic, but about building wholesome, happy children, too. Each child has unique gifts to be fostered and his own potential to reach. We help make that happen by providing the ideal conditions for educating the complete 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 pick up a vehicle in Louisiana 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:
A Vehicle Application form (DPSMV1799) must be completed and the "Duplicate Title Affidavit" section must be completed and notarized.

All documents and fees must be submitted simultaneously to the local Office of Motor Vehicles or mailed to:
Office of Motor Vehicles
P.O. Box 64886
Baton Rouge, LA 70896
