DONATE A CAR IN ILLINOIS

One Vehicle Donation Can Change a Sick Child’s Life

Chicago, Illinois Skyline | Kids Car Donations

In case you haven’t heard, you can now take part in Kids Car Donations’ Illinois car donation program! Vehicle donation in Illinois is perfect for getting rid of that idle car that’s been clogging up your driveway for years. Are you still resisting the urge to have it refurbished so you can sell it yourself?

Before you jump the gun and find yourself spending a fortune on repairs, why don’t you consider donating it to make life easier for the kids and teens who are confronted with life-threatening diseases and life-limiting disabilities? If you donate your car in Illinois to Kids Car Donations, the proceeds that come from the sale of your vehicle at auction will be used by our certified 501(c)3 charity partner, Songs of Love Foundation, to create personalized songs for these kids.

In case you’re wondering what makes these songs special, they are professionally written, arranged and produced by talented performers and songwriters. What’s more, each song’s musical style is based on the child’s preferred genre (pop, rock, rap, jazz, hip-hop, R&B, folk) and the lyrics feature the child’s name and references to his or her favorite people, pets, food, hobbies, places and more! Each song is written about the child, for the child.

Why You Should Donate Your Vehicle

Our car donation program is the best place to donate a car in Illinois because you’ll enjoy several benefits in exchange for your donation. Here are some of the perks you’ll get upon donating your vehicle:

  1. Free yourself from the responsibilities that come with caring for an unwanted vehicle! Aren’t you tired of paying for insurance, registration, repairs and storage for a vehicle that you no longer want, let alone need?
  2. Say goodbye to repairs and upkeep! If you’ve been planning to sell your rusty old clunker, you might have to shell out more cash if it needs a lot of work to make it more appealing to potential buyers. On the other hand, if you choose to make a car donation in Chicago, you won’t have to worry about repairs because we’ll take your vehicle as it is!
  3. You won’t have to deal with the paperwork – we will! Our team will get all the required paperwork in order for you. You won’t have to stress over your vehicle’s transfer of ownership or the issuance of your tax receipts because we’ve got this covered!
  4. Fast and easy donation process – no sweat! After you provide all the information we need, we’ll take care of everything until your donation process is completed.
  5. Free pickup and towing of your vehicle! Kids Car Donations will cover the cost of pickup and towing. There’s no need for you to pull out your credit card.
  6. Enjoy a thumping tax deduction! Choosing Kids Car Donations can automatically qualify you for a top tax deduction based on the amount for which your car is sold at auction or its fair market value.
