I could not believe how easy and quick it was
By Mildred V., Sumner  WA (I donated a 1998 Ford Explorer)

I could not believe how easy and quick it was to donate our car. The ladies on the phone were so nice, professional and did an outstanding job explaining and following up with us. We have donated cars before but nothing this simple and also rewarding knowing we are helping children. We wll keep your information to share with others. Thanks, Mildred Vanderpool

Renee J.
I was glad to help what little I can
By Renee J., San Jose  CA (I donated a 1998 Chevrolet Prizm)

When I decided to donate my car I did a little research on line as there are so many choices. Kars4kids seemed the best. I went on line
and answered the questions. In as little as 5 minutes I was done. The gentleman who came to pick up my car was very friendly and helpful.
He also reminded me to make sure I had all of my personal belongings out of my car. Within 2 days my car was picked up and the only thing I had to do was mail in my title of transfer to DMV. This can also be done online.
I was glad to help what little I can for the kids who need it the most.

Our truck's transmission went kaput, was sold for $1600!
By Veronica C., Placentia  CA (I donated a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo)

The process was very smooth. Our truck's transmission went put and we decided to donate the vehicle. We called Kars 4 kids to pick up the vehicle which they did in a timely manner. About a month later we received out tax paperwork idicating that the truck was sold for $1600!

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.

Fun Fun Fun...

We are careful to reward the children‘s hard work in school and after-school programs with: fun, fun, fun! Whether its rock climbing, ATVing, horseback riding or just bonding together with friends by a bond fire, the children are assured to receive the outlets they need to ensure further development and growth.

Tutoring 1 on 1

So many children struggle in the average classroom setting, needing individualized attention outside of school, which many times is not supplemented by a child‘s parents for numerous reasons. That is why we have carefully designed a tutoring program giving each child the care they need to help bring out their true potential which will help jumpstart a cycle of success.

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 usually pick up a vehicle in Utah without a title. We will just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.
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:
Titles are replaced by sending a completed Form TC-123, "Application for Duplicate Utah Title" and $6.00 title fee to:
Division of Motor Vehicles
Mail and Correspondence
P.O. Box 30412
Salt Lake City, UT 84130

For more details visit:
Utah Title
The sample title document to the left of this paragraph has a blue arrow. Sign where the arrow appears using the name listed on the front page of your car title. The title document should be given to the tow truck driver at the time your car is collected.
  1. Remove plates
    Remove the license plates from the car, prior to it being towed. It is recommended that you deface the plates so that no one else can use it.

  2. Notify the DMV
    Notify the Division of Motor Vehicles in writing that your vehicle has been sold. The notification must include the vehicle year, make, plate or vehicle identification number and the owner's signature. This notification can be sent by fax or mail to: 
    Division of Motor Vehicles
    Suspended Transaction Unit
    P.O. Box 30412
    Salt Lake City, UT 84130
    Fax: (801) 297-3570

  3. Stop insurance
    Cancel your insurance coverage on the donated vehicle once it’s been picked up.
