You‘ve got questions? We’ve got answers.

How do I donate my car?

You can donate your car, motorcycle, motorhome or boat online. Simply fill out the online donation form and you will be contacted within two working days to arrange pickup or delivery.

How quickly can you tow away my car?

It typically takes 2-5 business days after the Kidney Foundation receives your information. It is also possible to request 24 hour pick up service (in most areas) for special circumstances. To assure the best possible service, we ask donors to contact our office if the donated vehicle is not towed away within 3 days.

Will you take my car? (Condition/Location)

We accept any car that has a clear title, inflated tires, and has not been dismantled/parted out. We can tow your vehicle from almost anywhere. For rural locations, call our office at 1-800-869-5277.

What about the tax deduction?

The tax deduction generally applies to those who itemize deductions on their 1040 federal tax return. The amount of the tax deduction depends on the actual sale value of the Kidney Kar donation.

You are allowed to claim a fair market value up to $499 unless the vehicle sells for $500 or more. If your Kidney Kar donation is sold for more than $500, you can claim the actual sale value as your deduction. Please check with a tax professional regarding your personal tax benefit.

Do I have to be present when the tow truck driver comes?

No. They do not make appointments for the pick up, but they give you a 3 hour window when they will be there. Be sure to leave the keys and title (signed by the owner, to the National Kidney Foundation of Utah ) in the car.
