By donating your home to Kars4Kids, a Jewish nationally-recognized nonprofit, you’ll receive a tax-deductible receipt for the full appraised value of the donated house.
The 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. We rely on thousands of volunteers to help us change the world, one child at a time.
Will you accept a house that has a lien or mortgage?
Every property needs to be evaluated separately. Fill out the form at the top of this page and we will get back to you within 1 business day.
Can you take a house that needs repairs?
Yes, you can still donate your property even if it's in less than ideal condition.
What does Kars4Kids do with the house?
Kars4Kids assesses each property, and based on the condition, location, and other factors, may fix it up, rent it out, or resell to generate profits for our charity.
Can you take a house that I couldn’t sell?
We usually can. We evaluate each property individually.
Will you take a house with a tenant in it?
Yes we can, though we’ll need info on the tenant to proceed.
Do I need to be present at closing?
No. We will mail you all the necessary documents for you to sign.
My house is part of association. Will you deal with board to approve the transfer.
Yes, Kars4kids can work with the board to facilitate the transfer.
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.
What are some of the motivations for donating a house to charity?
There are many reasons that people decide to donate a house to charity, including an investment property which didn't pan out, an inheritance which the donor is not interested in, and many more.
What tax benefits will I receive by donating my house to charity?
When you donate a house 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.
