No one makes it easier to donate your car or truck

Donate your unused vehicle to KSPS. Vehicles of all shapes and sizes are accepted including cars, trucks, boats, RV/motor homes and motorcycles. Your vehicle will be towed at no cost to you.

Thinking about selling your car, boat, motorcycle, truck or other vehicle, but unsure how much you can get for it? Donate it to KSPS instead! When you donate your vehicle to KSPS you will be supporting all the programs you love; plus, you can receive a tax deduction when you itemize your return.

Here's How it Works

It’s simple! Call 844-KSPS-CAR or 844-577-7227 or fill out the web form and we'll take care of the rest, including pick–up, at no cost to you.

Once your vehicle has been sold, you'll be sent a receipt for your tax records, and the sale proceeds will be donated to KSPS in your name. You will also receive a one-year membership to KSPS.

More Details

What type of vehicles do you accept as donations?

We accept most cars, trucks, vans, fleet vehicles, trailers, boats, motorcycles, and RV's. If you have any questions about what you can donate, please send us an email or call us toll-free at 844-KSPS-CAR.

Is my car donation tax deductible?

Vehicles donated will benefit Friends of KSPS, a nonprofit classified with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and are tax deductible.

What paperwork will I need for the DMV?

You will need to sign a release of liability and donation confirmation. Our driver will provide you with all the necessary paperwork. Once you sign the release of liability, you have five days to mail it to the DMV. Our driver will provide you with the address.

What if I lost the title?

Please call our donation department at 844-KSPS-CAR. Our title specialists can usually help obtain a duplicate title from your local motor vehicle department.

What does KSPS do with the vehicles?

The vehicles are sold at private auction. The proceeds are used to help support KSPS. Funds from vehicle donations help KSPS acquire and produce quality educational and entertainment programs and support our outreach efforts in the community.

Do I get a receipt for my donation which shows how much money my car raised for KSPS?

Yes, you will be mailed a receipt that shows the amount your donated vehicle brought in at auction. You should expect to have your receipt of sale about 4-8 weeks after you donate your vehicle.

Can I value my vehicle before I donate it to Rocky Mountain PBS?

Many factors can contribute to the final selling price of any vehicle, including the make, model and year of your car, along with any mechanical or physical damage to the vehicle that could affect its value. We recommend Kelly Blue Book or Nada as resources that may help you to estimate the value of your vehicle. KSPS’s vehicle donation representatives cannot guarantee the final selling price, which is your charitable contribution to KSPS.

My car hasn't run in years. Can I still donate it?

No, the car must have an engine and be towable. Cars that are in poor condition may be declined, as the cost to tow them may be more than the value of the vehicle.

Are all cars donated to KSPS sold at auction?

No. Occasionally, vehicles that are donated to KSPS do not sell at auction. In those cases, vehicles are sold for scrap and you will receive a receipt for what the current market rate is for scrap metal.

I donated my car several weeks ago but have not received my complimentary membership. When should I expect to receive it?

Often it takes 4 weeks from the moment your vehicle is picked up to the time KSPS receives notification of your donation. Then, it can take another 2-4 weeks to complete your membership and send it to you. You should receive your new member welcome kit approximately 6-8 weeks from the date you donate your vehicle to KSPS. If you are currently a member, you should have received your thank-you gift at the time of your pickup.

How will my car be picked up?

We will arrange to have your vehicle towed away at a scheduled time.

How can I schedule a pickup?
