My friend, you’ve come to the right place. At Kars4Kids, we make vehicle donations simple so that you don’t need to waste any time before going right back to cheering for the Cubs. Or the Cardinals.
Can we count you in for Easy and Cheap? Contact us and we’ll come tow your car, absolutely free of charge!
We guarantee crazy fast pickup, sometimes even within 24 hours, so you can rest easy.
Write off your car! Donate your car and receive a tax deduction equal to the value of your vehicle.
We can tell you everything in just four easy steps! Watch.
What you need to donate: Provide us with basic info about your car
Time it takes: 2 minutes
Just give us a few details so we can get your donation underway. We accept all kinds of vehicles, in any condition!
With our experienced team of tow-truck drivers based all around Illinois, you can expect us quickly, sometimes even the same day. Mmhm.
Your tax deduction is based on the sale price of your car. We work hard to sell your car for the best price, which means more funds for charity and a bigger tax advantage for you. See Tax Deduction at a Glance to find out how much money you’ll earn on your car donation.
And the best part of it all: Your donation helps fund Kars4Kids youth programs. Your donated car can change lives! As a 501(c)3 charity, when you donate to us, you’ll receive a tax receipt within 2-4 weeks. And you’ll get a vacation voucher for a 3-day, 2-night hotel stay! Pretty sweet deal, huh?
