Can I donate land that has a house or structure on it?
Yes. Kars4kids accepts land as well as properties with houses.

How long does the process to donate property take?
If all papers are in order, and the title is clear of any issues, the process typically takes between 3-6 weeks.

There are no utilities in the vicinity of the land. Will you accept the donation?
Yes, though each property needs to be evaluated on an individual basis.

What tax benefits will I get by donating land to charity?
When you donate land to a charitable organization, you can deduct the full fair market value of your property from your taxable income. According to the IRS (Publication 561) the fair market value is determined by an appraisal (for a property valued at $5,000 or more), which can be done by any qualified real estate appraiser.

If I own a small piece of land, but it may not be buildable, can you accept it?

Do I need to be present at closing?
No. We will mail you all the necessary documents for you to sign.

Will the land be used for conservation?
The land will generally not be used for conservation. Kars4Kids uses the proceeds from the donated land to support our educational programs.

Will I be charged any fees?
Kars4Kids will pay all closing and recording fees. In order to receive your tax deduction, you’ll need an appraisal on the house. According to IRS regulations, Kars4Kids cannot pay for the appraisal. If you already have an appraisal, you do not need to get another one.

How does Kars4Kids determine the approval of a land donation?
At Kars4Kids, our team of specialists review each land donation offer we receive, to ensure that the charity can benefit from the donation. We analyze a variety of different factors to maximize the potential of every property donation.

Why should I donate land to Kars4Kids?
By donating your parcel of land to Kars4Kids, you have an opportunity to contribute to childhood education, ensuring that our children develop into productive and effective members of society.
