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. 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.

Back-to-School Giveaways

Teens are proud of having the latest clothes. It‘s the same with back to school items. It‘s no good coming to school with last year‘s dingy backpack. That‘s why Kars4Kids works with local officials to provide backpacks to hundreds of teens. It‘s a fun occasion with food and music too, so teens can feel good about going back to school.

Making Family Time

The day-to-day struggle to earn a living means that sometimes families don't have time to spend time together. We make it possible with our weekend retreats, to give families a chance to recharge and restore that loving dynamic. Family togetherness is a gift we can only give with your generous assistance.

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 West Virginia but I'm missing my title. Is my car still eligible for donation?
We can pick up a vehicle in West Virginia without a title. We will just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.
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:
If the title is lost and the vehicle has never had a lien, the vehicle owner must complete an Affidavit of Duplicate Title for a Vehicle or Watercraft (DMV-4-TR), supply a copy of their driver's license, the registration card, if available, and the title fee of $10 to get a duplicate title issued. You can mail your completed application to:
Receiving and Processing
PO Box 17710
Charleston, WV 25317

Where do I sign my West Virginia title?
West 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 plates
    Remove the license plates from the car, prior to it being towed. Ensure that you’ve removed the registration card from the vehicle.

  2. Transfer Plates or Report Donation
    You may transfer the license plates to a different vehicle.  If you will not be transferring your plates, you’ll need to send the license plate, registration and a brief note explaining that you’ve donated your car to the Division of Motor Vehicles

  3. Sold Vehicle Affidavit
    You may complete a "Sold vehicle affidavit" and submit it to the division 60 days AFTER you’ve donated. The completed form can be mailed to: DMV Records PO Box 17150 Charleston, WV 25317.

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