Shawn O.
Pleased with the ease of them picking up my vehicle
By Shawn O., Decatur  GA (I donated a 2003 Chevrolet Venture)

I was pleased with the ease of them picking up my vehicle, but I am not enjoying the having to notify that I no longer own the vehicle with threats of cancelled insurance & tag renewals. I wish that the notification is given to the county/state that it has been donated & no longer the responsibility of the previous owner.

The process happened so quick I nervous I missed something
By Michael P., Plymouth  MA (I donated a 2002 Dodge Stratus)

Donating my car to Kars4Kids honestly couldn't have been any easier. I called and had a pick up date set for a few days later. The driver called to let me know he was almost there, came and picked up the car and was off. The process happened so quick I was a bit nervous I missed something. A few weeks later I received my voucher for my taxes in the mail. Easy as that

Adrian A.
This was really the best alternative for the old clunker
By Adrian A., Cumming  GA (I donated a 1997 Chevrolet Venture)

For weeks I had been contemplating about what to do with the old van that was practically on it's last leg and I didn't want to put up with selling it or letting it die. This was really the best alternative. This was a very easy and simple process. I was skeptical at first, but I was able to easily have someone pick up the car, I received the letter in the mail and saved it for tax time. Now, I am expecting a little extra on my return. And, I no longer have to worry about that old clunker. Thank You Kars 4 kids! Oh and it's good for the kids too. :)

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. 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.

Petting Zoo Therapy

Our summer camp menagerie is an integral part of building happy, emotionally healthy children. Children find it soothing to work with and cuddle the animals. It makes them feel capable when an animal responds to their touch and voice. Our unique brand of pet therapy bolsters campers' self-esteem and translates into better relationships with their peers.

What's New?

There‘s always something going on at Kars4Kids, whether it‘s a weekend reunion for teenage girls, an exercise class at ChillZone, or a back-to-school backpack giveaway. There are fun and worthwhile programs for every age, from moms and dads, to teens, boys and girls. Something for everyone in the family all year long is our primary aim.

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.
