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

Rhonda H.
You had the car towed right away
By Rhonda H., Gresham  OR (I donated a 2000 Ford Focus)

You guys were great, you had the car towed right away and I got my donation slip right away. The only thing is I was told you sold the 2000 Ford Focus for $350.00 you could have parted it out for approx $2500.00 if you could not get it running. It would have meant a lot more revenue for the cause.

William U.
The tow service was very prompt
By William U., Portland  OR (I donated a 2002 Jaguar X-Type)

I contacted Kars4Kids over the phone and everyone I spoke with was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about my situation, even though it was not the prototypical donation. The tow service was very prompt and the whole experience was great.

Eva R.
Everything went smoothy as planned
By Eva R., Deer Island  OR (I donated a 1992 Ford Explorer)

My experience with Kars4Kids was wonderful. They are easy to work with and everything went smoothy as planned out. I will donate again.

Still have questions?

What is the amount of the tax deduction I will receive?
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.
What can I donate?
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.
I want to donate a car in Oregon but I'm missing my title. Is my car still eligible for donation?
We can pick up a vehicle without a title in Oregon. We just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.

In the following counties you don't need to sign any paperwork at all. Just provide a proof of ownership (such as copy of registration or insurance card): Multnomah, Washington
How can I replace my missing title?
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:
Fill out an Application for Replacement Title (Form 735-515). You may submit your completed applications, supporting materials and payment to a DMV office, or mail your document to the address below:
