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
