The donation experience with Kars4Kids was effiecient. They made the process smooth and pretty easy by their good communication throughout. I found it thorough and consumer oriented. I donated a motorcycle and wanted the proceeds to go to a good cause.

How your car donation 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, with the help of our sister charity Oorah. 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.

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.

Questions about donating a car in WA

We’ve got answers to all your questions about car donation in WA, whether you want to know more about the process or anything related to your car’s title.
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.
Kars4Kids accepts donations of virtually all kinds of vehicles, including but not limited to: car, snow plow, boat, bus, jet ski, truck, airplane, van, trailer, motorcycle, ATV, tractor, commercial, fleet and RV (motor home) donations. Sorry, no kids.
