Donating Your Car To Public Radio in Kentucky

You’re one of over 600,000 listeners that tune into the KPR association of Kentucky Public Radio stations each week, for the national news, entertainment and local programming you rely upon. Cash donations are always welcome, but a vehicle donation is a way to provide more than the average cash donation, and receive a tax benefit in return.

Donating a vehicle to public radio in Kentucky is an easy process, but you’ll want to be aware of a few specific steps

  1. Select the public radio station in Kentucky you’d like to support
  2. Complete and sign your vehicle title
  3. Note: If your vehicle is missing its title, you can obtain a duplicate from the state.  You can find out more about title replacement on the state’s website.

My car won’t run. Is it still ok to donate to my Kentucky Public Radio member station?

Yes! If your vehicle is gathering leaves and dust in your driveway because it won’t run, we’ll help you get rid of it and you’ll put it to good use. A vehicle donation is a great way to move that car along and support your favorite public radio station.

Can I donate a vehicle other than a car to Kentucky Public Radio?

YES! We’ll take your swamp buggy, car, truck, van, SUV, motorcycle, RV, travel trailer, boat, and lots of other modes of transportation as a donation. Check with us to determine whether those need a title to donate.

Somewhere near 1.7 million cars and trucks are registered in Kentucky. The average vehicle in the Bluegrass State is 13 years old, a bit older than the national average. Older forgotten, unused, unloved cars are worth donating to your favorite local public radio station.
