This one is clearly the best of the bunch of charities
By Kerry F., Rockville  MD (I donated a 2002 Chevrolet Prizm)

I would recommend Kars4Kids to anyone who is considering donating their vehicle for a fine cause. I've dealt with other charities in the past and this one is clearly the best of the bunch. They are well-organized and are on time with everything from their follow-up phone calls to getting the vehicle picked up at a time that is suitable to you. The tow truck driver was just as courteous as you would hope for and the paperwork cam in right when they said it would. I would not hesitate to use them again and have already recommended them to my friends and family.

You made it convenient for me
By William R., Parkton  MD (I donated a 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190-Class)

It was fast. It was easy. You made it convenient for me. It made me happy to have a good experience because I will be more inclined to do the same in the future with your charity. Thank you!

This is my first time donating a car for charity
By Amy D., Germantown  MD (I donated a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer)

This is my first time donating a car for charity. The process is fast and convenient. Dolores has been very helpful in answering my questions and making sure that I submit all of the paperwork that needed in order to process. Not only do I get tax deductable for an unused car but I also get free vacation voucher. I will recommend Kars4kids to my family and friends. Thank you, Kars4kids.

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.

Funding Educational Initiatives

Kars4Kids, more than anything else, believes in helping kids get a quality education. Partnering with those who share the desire to educate children helps further the dream, making it possible for even children from low-income homes to get the education they deserve.The Kars4Kids small grant initiative for like-minded education nonprofits is a great way to pool resources and make things happen.

Navigating Childhood

There‘s a lot of pressure on schoolchildren these days. The school work can be difficult, but beyond that there may be learning disabilities, peer pressure, bullying, and a lack of motivation. Kars4Kids carefully matches children with volunteer tutors who serve as mentors, guiding kids through the pitfalls of childhood to ensure they get an education.

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 without a title in Maryland. We just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.

In the following counties you may not need to sign any paperwork at all. Just provide a proof of ownership (such as copy of registration or insurance card): Cecil

Redmonds Auto Parts serves one of the largest areas of any towing company we know. The company, in the business for some 22 years, hauls cars all over the entire state of Maryland, a large swathe of Pennsylvania, the eastern region of West Virginia, the northern section of Virginia, the full state of Delaware, and all of Washington, D.C. Somehow Redmond gets the job done with a fleet of just 5 trucks. This seems like nothing short of a magic trick - the owner estimates the company services between 6-10 cars daily.

Redmonds has often arrived at a call to find the entire family gathered to say goodbye to the family car. What can we say: the United States is a place where people love their cars. Of course, families are pleased and happy to know that the proceeds of their donations go to help children in families not much different from their own! It‘s all in the spirit of helping others.

MD fun factsThe typical RV owner is 49, married, and a homeowner with an annual household income of $68,000. Of course, Kars4Kids has no idea how close Henry of Pikesville, MD comes to this average profile, but the fact that he donated his RV to help kids means he‘s ABOVE average in our eyes.

Financial disclosure: J.O.Y for our youth  is exempt from tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and qualifies for the maximum charitable contribution deduction by donors. Our Federal Identification Number is 22-374-6050. We are proud of the way we manage our finances.
