UNICEF USA's online car donation program

Donate your vehicle and you can help support UNICEF's mission for children.

Operating through vehicle donation partner Advanced Remarketing Services (ARS), UNICEF USA accepts almost all automobile donations, as well as most ATVs, boats, construction machinery, farming machinery, motorcycles, motorhomes, personal watercraft such as jet skis, planes, recreational vehicles, snowmobiles, SUVs, trailers, trucks and vans. Boats and planes may require a screening call to ensure they meet the donation criteria.

The best part: UNICEF USA ensures that the majority of the vehicle's value — generally 80 percent of gross dollars raised — actually goes to charity, more than most other car donation programs found online. The remaining 20 percent covers administration and logistics fees for the title transfer, towing and documentation of your donation.

Tips about donating your car to charity

  1. Your vehicle does not need to be running, however it must be whole, as in not missing major parts. If applicable, your vehicle must have all tires filled with air so that it can be towed away.

  2. Your vehicle does not need to be registered in your name, as the name on the title and the name on registration documents often differ. For more information, contact Car Donation Wizard at +1 (855) 487-3863.

  3. Depending on the value of the vehicle donated, you may be eligible for a tax deduction. If the car is worth $5,000 or more, an independent appraisal may be necessary. The donor would need to complete Section B of IRS Form 8283.

  4. Always consult your tax adviser or the IRS for more information about how you can claim charitable deductions. IRS materials are accessible at www.irs.gov and telephone ordering at +1 (800) 829-3676.
