William B.
Glad I could help someone out
By William B., Buffalo  MN (I donated a 1998 Ford Taurus)

The courtiessness of the phone staff, being super helpful and patient to help me through the process of donating my car was PHENOMINAL. The toe truck driver was super friendly, I have reccomended your service to numerous frinds and a few have even done it . I am glad I could help someone out. I didn't even claim the donation so that it would be a true donation, not just something to write off on my taxes

Matthew R.
Will recommend and donate any further cars to Kars4Kids!
By Matthew R., Saint Paul  MN (I donated a 1993 Pontiac Grand Prix)

This was my first time donating a car and everything went great. I could not have asked for a better experience. I called before I actually donated and the representative was more then happy to answer all my questions. I decided to go with Kars 4 Kids because i felt it benefited kids in need. I then called back to set up my appointment to pick up my car. I was nervous but the representative reassured me everything will be fine and im doing a great thing. I then got a phone call from the local towing company who were just as polite and answered all my questions. I will recommend and donate any further cars to Kars 4 Kids!

Adam C.
I called, they came, done deal
By Adam C., Edina  MN (I donated a 1996 Acura Integra)

Kars for kids was easy. I called, they came, bone deal. And I received a vacation. Couldn't have been any easier.

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.

Summer Camp Fun

Every child dreams of attending summer camp. Kars4Kids makes those dreams come true for a thousand children or more, each and every summer. The evidence is right here in living color: from zip-lining, to swimming, to talent shows where individual children can really shine. Kars4Kids knows that camp builds happy, healthy, confident children.

A Helping Hand

Kids deserve to have an uncomplicated life and to have fun. But unfortunately, some kids are dealt a rough hand. Things may be hard at home or with making friends. Kars4Kids mentors serve to fill in the gaps, giving kids what they need most, whether it‘s help with homework, some batting practice, a warm coat, a smile, or unconditional acceptance.

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 Minnesota. We just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.

Minnesota is beyond cold. That in itself is a great reason for the imaginative name of the veteran towing company B‘yond, which services car donations within a 50-mile radius of Minneapolis and St. Paul. B‘yond has been in the business of towing cars for 9 years and currently has a fleet of 7 trucks dedicated to picking up car donations for Kars4Kids.

In almost a decade of service, B‘yond has gone above and well, beyond, to give good service, but occasionally, things don‘t go according to plan. Once, the tow truck operators arrived to pick up an Oldsmobile at a property out in the country. The workers found the car sitting out in the middle of a field and discovered that the vehicle had been filled to the brim with dirt, and planted with flowers! The car had been turned into one very large, very unusual flower pot!

The staff chuckled about that incident for a good long time. One thing for sure, towing cars is never dull.
