Donate your car to benefit St. Jude kids

Get Started

 
 
 

Your car donation can help St. Jude fight childhood cancer. The money from the sale of your vehicle will contribute to our lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children®.

We’ve partnered with Charitable Adult Rides and Services (CARS) to make donating your car easy. Vehicle donations are eligible for tax deductions.

 
 

Why donate your car to St. Jude?

 
  • To free up space in a garage or driveway
  • To avoid expensive repairs
  • To retire from driving 
  • To skip the hassle of selling
  • To get a tax write-off
  • To help fight childhood cancer!

Step 2

Schedule a pickup

A CARS representative will contact you within 24 hours to schedule a pickup by a licensed tow company at no cost to you. Note: A Certificate of Title will be required at the time of vehicle pickup.
