Cars for Kids' Sake
Cars for Kids' Sake is an innovative way to help Big Brothers Big Sisters raise funds by donating your unwanted vehicle. Donated vehicles qualify as charitable gifts and may be eligible for tax deduction.
All types of vehicles, including cars, trucks, SUVs, motor homes, boats, airplanes, farm equipment, and construction equipment are welcome. You will be asked to describe the condition of the vehicle. The vehicle does not need to run.
The process for donating a car is simple and hassle-free. Call Big Brothers Big Sisters' Vehicle Donation Program at (800) 710-9145, or follow the easy steps below to arrange a pickup for your unwanted vehicle.
The vehicle will be picked up, processed, and sold to help kids in your community.
Steps to Donating Your Car - Please Read Carefully
Click on the following link: Donate your car! Then select GO! You will be asked for your vehicle's make, model, vehicle identification number (VIN#), and current mileage.
After you enter the donation information, you will need to print out the forms at the end of the donation wizard and send them with your vehicle's title.
Your vehicle will then be sold at a dealers-only auction or to a licensed recycler. With all costs deducted, Big Brothers Big Sisters consistently receives between 65% and 80% of the gross sale price. Proceeds benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters programs in your area.
It's tax deductible!
Instructions for reporting this deduction can be found in IRS Publication 526.
