Car Donation Program
TO DONATE YOUR VEHICLE, CALL 601-981-3611
The Mississippi Kidney Foundation accepts donations of vehicles, including cars, trucks and boats…actually we accept just about any type of vehicle; we’ve even received jet skis, motorcycles, golf carts, and riding lawnmowers!
We accept vehicles, running or not, and we even provide free towing…
which is especially helpful when you’ve got a car that no longer runs and is just sitting in your driveway, blocking your garage. Or we’ll pick your car up at the repair shop when you decide that you just aren’t willing to put any more money into it.
The Car Donation Program started in 1993, and since then, over 4,000 families have responded by donating a vehicle, generating well almost $2 million dollars. The money raised though the car donation program helps support the over 20 patient programs and services that we provide.
When you itemize on your tax records, you are eligible for a tax deduction. The tax laws have changed a bit, but current guidelines allow the donor to take up to $500 or whatever the vehicle sells for at auction, whichever is greater.
The donation process is simple. Just call the Mississippi Kidney Foundation at (601) 981-3611. We’ll send you the information or you can download the information from this web page. (We do have a few restrictions. For example, the car must have a title, and we prefer the car to have tires!!!)
So we hope you will “put some good in the goodbye” and help us drive away kidney disease!
