What paperwork do I need to complete to donate a car to an Arkansas public radio member station?

Vehicle Title: In order to complete your Arkansas car donation, transfer your title by PRINTING and SIGNING your name in the seller/owner field in the top box on the back of the title EXACTLY as it appears at the top of the title.

What should I expect the day the tow truck comes to pick up my donated vehicle?

The day of your scheduled vehicle pickup, you’ll need to provide the driver with the completed title, along with the keys. After the vehicle sells, you'll receive a vehicle donation receipt for tax purposes.

Does my car have to be running or in good working condition?

No. We'll accept your vehicle in any condition and can arrange to have it towed if it's not running.

Can I donate a vehicle other than a car?

Absolutely. There are nearly a million cars registered in Arkansas, but we’ll take boats, RVs, travel trailers, ATVs and any other type of vehicle, too.

The average car in the Land of Opportunity is 12.9 years old. That means there are literally tens of thousands of cars in the state that are no longer worth buying new tires for, let alone maintaining as a daily driver.Yet these forgotten, unused, unloved cars can be a great source of revenue for your favorite public radio station in Arkansas.

While the best part of donating a car in Arkansas 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.

My vehicle doesn’t run. Is it still ok to donate to an Arkansas public radio station?

Yes! If you have a vehicle that won’t run,  a vehicle donation is a great way to move that car along and support your favorite public radio station.
