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.

Community Backpack Giveaways

It‘s no fun starting school with last year‘s dingy backpack. That‘s why Kars4Kids goes straight to the heart of communities, partnering with local officials to make sure thousands of children have new ones. Just having that one new item can motivate a child to academic success, as the smiles of these backpacks recipients attest.

Children's Own Voices

Listen to the children tell you in their own words about the many ways they benefit from the work of Kars4Kids. Round the clock mentoring and homework help ensure that children have a chance to succeed and get ahead. Volunteers make sure their charges have all the supports necessary to make it through school.

Still have questions?

I want to donate a car in Virginia but I'm missing my title. Is my car still eligible for donation?
We can pick up a vehicle without a title in Virginia. We just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.

If you'd prefer you may apply for a new title on your own. Here's how:
To apply for a replacement title you can:
1. Apply online via the virginia.gov website.
2. Call 1-888-337-4782
3. Bring your current registration card and your driver's license or ID card to your local customer service center.
4. Complete an "Application for Supplemental Lien and Transfer Liens or Replacement and Substitute Titles" (VSA 66).

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.
Where do I sign my Virginia title?
Virginia Title ZOOM IN 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.
How do I transfer the ownership of my car?
1. Remove all plates
All plates must be removed from your car prior to towing.

2. Dispose or return your plates to the DMV
If you purchase a replacement vehicle, you may transfer your old plates to the replacement vehicle.If the plates are not transferred to another vehicle, you may return them to any DMV customer service center for recycling or destroy and dispose of them yourself. 

Notify DMV that you have donated the vehicle.
You must notify DMV that you have donated your vehicle. This may be accomplished by going online, visiting a customer service center or contacting the DMV by phone. 

NOTE: If you have a full six months or more remaining in your vehicle registration period, you may qualify for a refund by returning the plates to DMV.  Complete an Application for Vehicle Registration Refund Form (FMS-210) and mail it with the license plates to the address shown on the form. You may also request a refund by returning the completed FMS-210 and plates to a Customer Service Center or DMV Select.

3. Cancel your insurance
Notify the insurance company that you donated the vehicle. You must notify the insurance company when you have sold, traded or donated a vehicle. If you bought another vehicle, you may transfer insurance coverage to the new vehicle, providing the required information to the insurance company. Be sure to obtain liability insurance for the other vehicle before you register it with DMV and transfer the old plates or purchase new plates for it.

Avoid Future Problems: Insurance companies notify DMV whenever they cancel, add or write new coverage for a motor vehicle. Therefore, if your insurance company cancels liability coverage on your vehicle because you no longer own it and you don't notify DMV, our records will show that the vehicle is registered in your name but is uninsured. Since it is unlawful to have an uninsured registered vehicle, DMV may suspend your driver's license and vehicle registration privileges.
