Holly M.
The phone were very sweet and understanding
By Holly M., Seattle  WA (I donated a 1994 Buick )

I loved Kars4Kids the tow truck driver was amazing and the people on the phone were very sweet and understanding!~!

Matthew H.
I had a great experience
By Matthew H., Edmonds  WA (I donated a 1996 Ford Ranger)

I had a great experience with this organization. The pick up of my donated truck was simple, and a tax form followed a few weeks after the sale of the truck. I have yet to use the vacation package, but plan on it very soon. Hopefully someone is getting good use from my old truck.

Julie A.
Nice, smooth transaction
By Julie A., Everett  WA (I donated a 1992 Chevrolet Corsica)

Nice, smooth transaction. Tow truck came and got the car and I was given a receipt for the pickup. Shortly after that, I received the certificate to use with my taxes for my donation. Later, while filing my taxes, I couldn't find the receipt and emailed Kars4kids and asked if they could email me another copy of the certificate. Within a day I received the emailed copy of the receipt and was able to complete the taxes.

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.

Gift Of Giving

Each year, Kars4Kids distributes holiday packages for kids in difficult straits who might not otherwise mark a special day as something out of the ordinary. But this time, a class of middle school children was organized to help create and label the packages. It was a learning experience that taught those child volunteers about the gift of giving.

The Zone: Summer Camp

Our summer camp is a world-class resort facility situated on 500 acres of sprawling mountains in upstate New York. Specialty workshops include woodworking, leather craft and martial arts for the boys and hair styling, baking and kickboxing for the girls. Most importantly the unity and care that permeates the air is what keeps kids coming back year after year.

Still have questions?

I want to donate a car in Washington but I'm missing my title. Is my car still eligible for donation?

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.
