Questions about donating a car in HI

We’ve got answers to all your questions about car donation in HI, 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.
Yes, we can usually pick up a vehicle without a title in Hawaii . We may need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.
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:
Print out and complete the Application for duplicate motor vehicle certificate of title.
Hawaii Title
The sample title document to the left of this paragraph has a red arrow. Sign where the arrow appears using the name listed on the front page of your car title. The signed title should be placed in the glove compartment at the time your vehicle is picked up.
Here's how the title transfer process works when you donate a car in Hawaii:
Leave the plates on the car, since they are assigned to the vehicle and not the owner. Personalized or specialty license plates belong to the owner of the vehicle so you should do a plate and emblem replacement before donating.
You'll submit a Notice of Transfer form within 10 days of donating to the county motor vehicle registration office where the vehicle was last registered. Cancel your insurance after your car has been towed. More details and answers to all your titles questions can be found on our Hawaii titles page.

HI fun factsNot exactly vintage, no, but a 1967 Toyota Land Cruiser did set a record for the oldest car donation ever received from the state of Hawaii. And no, no orchid leis wrapped around the antenna. We were as disappointed as anyone :)
