One of the worst things that parents can ever experience is when the doctor tells them that their child is afflicted with a life-threatening disease. In an instant, their lives completely change. They find themselves spending days on end at hospitals monitoring the treatment of their child, watching their little one deal with the side-effects of certain medications, and driving their child to the doctor for checkups.

Aside from the fact that the whole journey can be an emotional roller coaster ride for everyone in the family, the financial burden that’s associated with the treatment can put extra weight on their shoulders as well.

Thankfully, you can help ease their burden by donating your clapped-out vehicle to Kids Car Donations through our Oakland, California car donations program. With your donation, you’ll be able to give these children and their families what they need to rise above their physical, emotional, and mental challenges.


Our Commitment to Helping Oakland’s Children

Oakland is one of the most diverse cities in the United States where 34 percent of the population is composed of the white community, 28 percent black, 25 percent Hispanic, and 16 percent Asian. Regardless of their race, a considerable number of children in these diverse communities face the same problem: serious health challenges.

This is made even more troublesome when you consider that more than 17% of children in the city live below the poverty line, which is higher than the average throughout California.

Kids Car Donations, along with our like-minded IRS-certified 501(c)3 charity partners believe that every child deserves the right to have a strong start in life regardless of their race, gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic background. For this reason, we work hard to address their health problems. Kids Car Donations serves as the online platform for the vehicle donation programs of our charity partners, helping them deliver vital health programs and services that benefit kids in need in communities throughout the United States. These services include comprehensive medical assistance, emotional support, relief of pain and trauma during hospital confinement, and others aimed at promoting children’s care, advocacy, research, and education.

We raise funds to support the delivery of these services by auctioning off all the vehicle donations that we receive. Your old faithful doesn’t have to meet its end at the nearest car graveyard. You can use it to make a positive impact on the lives of ailing and disadvantaged children and teens by taking part in our Oakland, California car donations program.


Why Joining Oakland, CA Car Donations Is Better than Selling Your Clunker

When clunkers are no longer worth fixing, their owners usually try to come up with ways to recover some value. Before you think about selling yours, take time to consider the reasons why taking part in our Oakland, California car donations program makes better sense:

  • It’s a convenient way to get rid of your unwanted vehicle.

Did you know that the average time it takes a private seller to get their car sold is two months? Plus, you’d be lucky to walk away with the offer that you’ve been hoping for. On the other hand, if you donate a car for charity through Kids Car Donations in Oakland, we can quickly collect it and have it auctioned off. A few days after your vehicle is sold, we’ll send you your tax-deductible receipt.

  • You don’t have to refurbish your car to make it more appealing.

Unlike selling where you might need to shell out some money for that badly needed paint job, floor mats, car seats, etc. to make it more marketable, you don’t have to do anything to spruce up your vehicle if you donate it to us. In case you’re not aware, we’ll take any type of vehicle whether they’re in great shape or otherwise.

  • We’ll pick up your vehicle for FREE.

Selling means you have to transport your vehicle to locations where your prospective buyers can view it. When you donate a vehicle to charity through Kids Car Donations, you won’t need to pay for the cost of towing because it’s on us! Aside from the added convenience of choosing the time, date, and place of your car’s pickup, we won’t require you to be present when we haul your vehicle away.

  • You’ll enjoy a healthy tax write-off.

The best part about donating your unwanted vehicle to us is that you’ll be able to reduce your taxable income in the next tax season. If your car sells for $500 or less, you can claim a tax deduction that’s equivalent to its actual selling price or its fair market value up to $500, whichever is higher. On the other hand, if it sells for more than $500, you can claim a deduction that’s equivalent to its selling price.
