Rachelle N.
I was surprised how easy everything was taken care of
By Rachelle N., Hayward  CA (I donated a 2002 Hyundai Elantra)

First time I have ever donated a car. Kars 4 Kids made it so easy. One phone call easy to follow directions. Very convenient and timely.
I was surprised how easy everything was taken care of. I would definitely encourage other people to donate.

Kelly K.
It was the convenient experience I was looking for
By Kelly K., Reno  NV (I donated a 2000 Audi A4)

So happy! Very easy, it was the convenient experience I was looking for

Sherry N.
The process for having the car picked up was very smooth
By Sherry N., West Bend  WI (I donated a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier)

The process for having the car picked up was very smooth. The only part I was not satisfied with was with the getaway package that is given when you donate a vehicle. We were not able to use the Getaway at all since it was never offered any where close to where we live - Not everyone can afford to go to another state for a getaway - prior to us donating the car, we were told that their were packages available in the Wisconsin Dells - and everytime I called to make reservations, there was never anything available in Wisconsin - the closest was Illinois - so that was very dissapointing. I would donate again just because it's for a good cause - but what we were promised and actually received was very different

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.

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.
