Kidney Cars

Kidney Cars

Donate your vehicle to help a kidney patient.

Did you know that just one donated car enables the National Kidney Foundation to provide three people with free screenings for kidney disease? These screenings provide lifesaving health information for thousands throughout the country every year.

The National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Cars (NKF) program has been the most trusted car donation program for more than 30 years. Each year, proceeds from donated vehicles pump millions of dollars into our life-saving services for kidney patients and those at risk.

Most donations are cars, trucks, or vans, but Kidney Cars also accepts boats, motorcycles, motor cross bikes, power sports equipment, personal water craft, farm and construction equipment.

Why Donate to Us?

  • The NKF's car donation process is easy. You can donate online, or call 800.488.2277. You can speak with someone from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday EST.
  • We help hundreds of donors every day with title problems. They even help with tax issues or any other problem you might have.
  • Most vehicles can be picked up within 24 hours of making your call. In two weeks you will receive a proof of donation letter for your tax purposes.
  • We were the very first charity to accept donated cars as charitable donations.
