We have streamlined the aircraft donation process to make it as simple for our donors as possible.
After providing your information, you will be contacted by a member of our team to get a better understanding of your plane. Upon review and acceptance, Kars4kids will handle all the paperwork and technical aspects of the donation, such as ownership transfer.
The receipt and IRS form for your deduction will be sent out shortly after closing.
