Reach Out to Ailing Kids in Your Community

Aside from helping your child make friends, you can also extend a helping hand to the children in your community who are struggling with life-threatening illnesses or trying to cope with their disabilities.

You can easily do that by donating your extra vehicle to us at Kids Car Donations. We’ll sell your donated automobile through an auction and use the proceeds to support the critical health care programs and services of our child-focused charity partners. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations are dedicated to improving the health and saving the lives of disabled and disease-stricken children and teens from low-income families throughout the country.

They use the funding that came from the sale of donated vehicles to provide their young beneficiaries with comprehensive and quality medical assistance, including free and easy access to vital health services, emotional support, and other essential health care services.

Aside from helping restore the health of ailing kids in your community, your charitable contribution will also provide you with significant rewards. These include the privilege to claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season. You’ll also benefit from our free pickup and towing service.

The opportunity to give hope and relief to children suffering from serious ailments will also give you a sense of satisfaction that you will long cherish and remember.

You can donate not just a car but almost any other type of vehicle whether in good condition or not. We can pick up your vehicle wherever you are in the country since our vehicle donation program covers all 50 states.
