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.

Encouraging Literacy

The unique Kars4Kids Book Buddies program offers guided reading with mentors to further children‘s literacy. Working parents may not have the time to sit and listen to a child read and lots of kids have reading difficulties like dyslexia. Book Buddies makes reading a priority but also makes it enjoyable, a prime factor in motivating kids to read.

ChillZone Extracurricular Programs

With over two dozen locations across the country and more to come, our ChillZone extracurricular programs are a special place for children and teens to get together with mentors and chill. There's hot food, fun activities and great prizes, but best of all is the warm atmosphere of unconditional love.

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 Tennessee but I'm missing my title. Is my car still eligible for donation?
We can pick up a vehicle without a title in Tennessee. 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): Polk
