Donate a Car in Alaska

Even with the fewest registered cars in the country, Alaska still has thousands of unwanted and unused cars. If you are one of these car owners, consider donating your car to your public radio station through the Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program. Without federal funding, local public radio stations rely on donations from fans like you to continue providing trustworthy news and novel entertainment. Support your favorite radio station with a car donation!

How difficult is it to donate a car in Alaska?

While the best part of donating a car in Alaska is the support you provide to the people who deliver news, music and insightful talk to your radio every single day, the second best part is how easy it is to donate:

  1. Have your vehicle title ready.
  2. Follow this link to the Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program or call us at 1-877-215-0227.
  3. Answer the questions about your car and yourself.
  4. Select a date and time to have your car picked up.

It’s really that easy.

Note: If your vehicle is missing its title, you can obtain a duplicate from the Alaska Department of Administration, Division of Motor Vehicles. You can download the form at the Alaska DOA website.

What should I expect on the day of pick up?

On the day your vehicle is picked up, you’ll need to hand over the car keys and signed title to the tow driver.

In order to complete your Alaska car donation, transfer your title by SIGNING your name on the BACK of the title where it’s marked “SIGNATURE.” Make sure it’s EXACTLY as it appears printed on the front of the title.

When will I receive my tax receipt?

After your vehicle has been sold, you will receive an email with a tax receipt.
