Maybe you’ve seen the billboards, heard the ads, or read about it on the internet and now you’re wondering: how do I donate my car to charity? It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3!

1. Contact Kidney Cars

First call Kidney Cars at 800.488.CARS (2277) or fill out this quick form. Have paperwork problems? We've helped hundreds of donor's title problems and tax issues. 

2. Schedule a pickup time

Pick a time for one of our experts to pick up your vehicle. They are available 24/7.

3. Save on taxes

Fill out the necessary paperwork and we'll take it from there. Once the car is sold, we'll send you a receipt for tax purposes. Tax deductions depend upon the individual sale price of the vehicle. All the proceeds go to the National Kidney Foundation to support research, support for kidney patients, and continuing support for kidney donation legislation and services.
