All around us, countless children and teens are battling serious health challenges. If you’d like to lend a helping hand to improve their situation, consider donating your old car to us at Kids Car Donations through our St. Petersburg, Florida car donation program. We’ll turn your clunker into a powerful life-saving instrument!

Kids Car Donations serves as an online vehicle donation platform of reputable child-focused IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations. We seek to ease and eventually end the suffering of children and teens in America who are facing serious health challenges. We show our commitment by helping fund the programs and services being delivered by our charity partners to their young beneficiaries. We get these funds by auctioning off all vehicles donated to us.

Thus, thanks to our donors, our charity partners are getting the support they need in providing ailing children with comprehensive medical assistance including innovative solutions to pediatric health challenges, emotional support, relief of pain and trauma, and other services aimed at promoting children’s care, advocacy, research, and education.

Any vehicle that enters our St. Petersburg, Florida car donations program becomes a significant source of support for critically ill children in St. Petersburg.


Our Fast and Simple Donation Process

Donating to Kids Car Donations won’t require a lot of time and effort from you. In fact, it will only take you a couple of minutes since the only thing you need to do is contact us. Once you’ve informed us of your decision to donate, we’ll take over and finish the rest of the work for you.

From the paperwork-processing to the free towing of your vehicle, you can rely on our team of experts to efficiently manage everything for you. Just get in touch with us, give us basic information about your car, and that’s it!

Here’s a quick look at the donation process we follow in our St. Petersburg, Florida vehicle donation program:

1. Contact us.

Once you’re ready to donate a vehicle to charity, you can either call us at 866-634-8395 or fill out our online form here on this website. Be ready to provide us a few basic details about the vehicle you wish to donate and also your contact information.

2. We tow your vehicle.

After verifying the information you shared with us, we’ll return your call to ask you for your preferred date, time, and place for your vehicle’s pickup. You need not be present during the pickup but do make sure that you leave behind your car keys and title for our driver to pick up. In case you’ve lost your title, inform us beforehand so we can help you secure a duplicate copy of your title.

We’ll issue you a tow receipt after hauling off your car. The receipt releases you from any liabilities on your donated vehicle from that point onward. It also enables you to cancel your vehicle’s DMV registration and insurance coverage.

3. You get your tax-deductible receipt.

We’ll have your vehicle auctioned off in one of the best auction houses in our network. There, your vehicle will be sold at its highest possible price so you can maximize your tax deduction. Within 30 days after your vehicle is sold, expect to receive a 100% tax-deductible sales receipt in your mailbox. This serves as your ticket for claiming your tax write-off when you file your itemized federal income tax return in the next tax season.

How Your Donation Will Benefit You

With your charitable act, expect to receive rewards to make you smile! We at Kids Car Donations want nothing more than to see kind-hearted folks like you enjoy various benefits resulting from your own good deed. With that said, here’s what to expect when you team up with us:

  • Enjoy a top tax deduction.

The best part about donating your unwanted vehicle to us is that you’ll be able to slash your tax bill in the next tax season. If your vehicle 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.

  • Get free vehicle removal quickly and conveniently.

We offer free pickup and towing services in all 50 states.

  • Skip the headaches of paperwork.

Allow us to manage all your documents while you just wait around for your tax-deductible receipt to arrive. From the transfer of ownership to the issuance of your tax receipt, we’ll process everything on your behalf.

  • Avoid hassles of selling a used vehicle yourself.

It’s no question that selling a second-hand vehicle can be time-consuming, complicated, and even expensive. Stop punishing yourself by simply handing over your vehicle to our St. Petersburg, Florida car donations program.

  • Save plenty of cash.

Say goodbye to your vehicle’s expensive repairs, maintenance, and insurance! It’s about time you stop suffering from the money pains that your clunker is causing you.

  • More space for your garage.

Been itching to de-clutter and organize your garage? Well, with your dusty old car permanently out of the way, you can finally give your garage a fresh new look!

  • Feel great.

Knowing that your car donation will help in the healing of ailing kids in your community will certainly make you feel good and proud of yourself.

St. Petersburg, Florida, is the Tampa Bay area’s second-largest city. It is home to about 258,201 residents, with roughly 44,152 under the age of 18 and 12,651 under 5. Unfortunately, 10.6% of the population has an income below the poverty level, which means children in these households are greatly affected.

The goal is that one day they can healthfully enjoy all the kid-friendly landmarks throughout the area, such as St. Petersburg’s many white sand beaches, Great Explorations Children’s Museum, Sunken Gardens and more. 

Local vehicle donations give kids access to world-class care at the area’s best children’s hospitals, including the esteemed Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital here in St. Petersburg.
