Finding ways to make a difference in someone's life is not always easy, but when you donate to the National Kidney Foundation your can make a huge difference for a lot of people. The program, Kidney Cars, was the first car donation charity established more than 30 years ago and is known as one of the most trusted donation programs. Car donation is one way that the NKF raises money for research, education, and life-saving medical support for those with kidney disease and those who are at risk. Here are some more details about the donation process:

  • Kidney Cars accept most motorized vehicles, such as cars, vans, and trucks. Most people don’t realize that they can also donate power sports equipment, boats, motorcycles, watercraft, farm machinery and construction equipment.
  • In order to donate your car to help support those with kidney disease you can call or even donate online through the National Kidney Foundation website. Kidney Cars has donation experts that can help walk you through the process.
  • The process is very quick, and the car is usually picked up and the donation is complete within 24 hours. You receive your letter for tax purposes within two weeks.
  • 100’s of people donate their car every day.
  • If you do not have the title of your car one of our experts can help you get a replacement of title.
  • Even if your car doesn’t work you can donate your car and get tax credit, along with helping people with kidney disease.
  • The amount you are able to deduct from your taxes will depend on how much your car sells for and will be indicated in the letter that you receive two weeks after you donate.
  • Questions about what you do with your license plate after you donate your car can be directed to your state’s DMV.

The National Kidney Foundation is dedicated to helping those who suffer from kidney disease and wants to make the process of donating cars as easy and painless as possible. NKF appreciates each donation and will do their best to answer any questions you might have about car donation.
