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

The lady I spoke with was very pleasant and knowledgable
By F., Kansas City  MO (I donated a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire)

Every time I called the lady I spoke with was very pleasant and knowledgable. I sent in my request the last week of December 2012. I talked with her a couple days later, there was no pick up time available until the 9th of January. I asked her if it had to be picked up before the end of 2012 in order to not pay personal property taxes on it for 2013...she said it's from the date you submit the claim. The guy who came to pick up my car said I had to take the sheet down to the property claims so I can show I no longer own it. I went downtown to give them the information. They said I still have to pay personal property taxes on it for the 2013 year because it was not picked up before the beginning of the year. The date of the reclaim did not matter. That was rather frustrating.

They even worked with my special case
By Andrew G., North Canton  OH (I donated a 2002 Chevrolet S-10)

Kars4Kids was incredibly professional, prompt, and considerate. Donating could not have been easier with your organization. They even worked with me in my special case. I'm happy that my car went to a good cause.

Thanks so much!

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, with the help of our sister charity Oorah. We're a registered nonprofit Jewish organization. Learn about what we do and see our charity programs here.

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 usually 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

For additional details visit:
Louisiana Title
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.
  1. License Plates
    License plates should be removed from the vehicle prior to towing. You can choose to either destroy the plates, surrender them at your local motor vehicle office or mail the plate to the following address:   Office of Motor Vehicles  P O Box 64886  Baton Rouge, LA 70896

  2. Notice of Vehicle Transfer
    Complete a Notice of vehicle transfer online.

    You’ll need to provide the following information:
    - License plate number
    - Expiration date (as shown on vehicle's registration)
    - Vehicle identification number
    - Driver's license number or company EIN (as shown on vehicle's registration)
    - Name and address of buyer (Kars4kids, 1805 Swarthmore Ave, Lakewood NJ 08701)
