how it works

3 easy steps to donate an aircraft


Get an easy transfer and a maximum tax deduction.

Submit your plane's information through our quick online form or call us at .

Your plane is in good hands with us. We’ll take over the controls to ensure you experience a hassle-free transfer.


We coordinate the transfer

Our experienced team will handle the entire transfer process, including paperwork. All you’ll need to do is sign.


We coordinate the sale

We immediately get to work finding the best buyer for your plane. We won’t settle for anything less than the best price.

We send out a receipt for the full sale price of the plane for you to use to claim your tax deduction.

And we’ll use the proceeds for our charity programs helping kids develop into happy and productive members of their communities.


Skip the middleman

Unlike most charities, the entire donation process is handled by our own team, eliminating the extra processing fees most charities incur. Your donation actually goes directly to charity, not to a third party fundraiser.

In case you were
wondering...


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.
Plane owners have enjoyed unique benefits when donating to Kars4Kids.

In addition to the generous tax savings, you’ll have immediate freedom from expensive hangar fees, insurance, and all costs relating to the upkeep and storage of your aircraft.
You can donate single engine propeller planes, multi-engine propeller planes, jets, helicopters, turboprop, and all other types of aircraft.
If all papers are in order, the process typically takes within 2 weeks. For time sensitive situations, Kars4kids can expedite the process.
The IRS allows you to claim a tax deduction of the amount we sell your plane for. Consult your tax advisor for details.
You can claim a tax deduction in the year that the plane is donated. Depending on your tax situation, you may be able to claim the deduction for up to five years.*
