Donate a Car

If you would like to donate a car, there are many ways you can do so. There are numerous charities that make claims that are simply untrue. While these charities may claim that all proceeds go toward that charity's cause or mission, they ultimately keep in between 50 and 90 percent your donation ultimately produces. In Mississippi, a popular charity to donate to is the National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Cars program. By giving to the Kidney Cars program, donors help fund statewide kidney screenings, financial assistance, medical research, support groups and more. Mississippi has a special interest in overall kidney health as the state registered a kidney failure rate that is 20 percent higher than the national average. When you donate a car to a tax-exempt company approved by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), you can list it as a deduction when doing your taxes.
