John’s auto repair runs the peninsula kiwanis foundation cars for kids program – DONATE TODAY!

Donate_Your_Car_For_Kids You can donate any car, truck, SUV, motorcycle, boat or RV that you own. To prove ownership, you will need to have the title for your vehicle, or we will be unable to accept the donation.

You may deduct the full price that we receive from the sale of your vehicle. This greatly simplifies the process for you, the donor, because you no longer have to research and come up with an estimate of the fair market value of the vehicle. This also eliminates the risk of you getting into trouble by overstating the value of your deduction on your tax return. You’ll know exactly the amount you may deduct, eliminating guesswork, and saving you both time and risk.

We will give you a receipt for your donation, which you can then use to obtain your tax deduction. Read through the official IRS Information page for details on getting this deduction.
