Frequently Asked Questions

What vehicles does UNICEF USA accept?

What should I expect on the day of pick up?
On the day of pick up, you’ll hand over the car keys and signed title to the tow driver. Be sure all personal items are cleared from your vehicle. Instructions on how to sign your title can be found in the confirmation email you received after you submitted the donation form. You can also call us at 855-487-3863 or click here for state-by-state title instructions.
What documents are needed to donate a car to UNICEF USA?
In order to process your car donation, we’ll need a clear title. If you can’t find your title, you can obtain a duplicate at your state’s DMV.
Will I receive a tax receipt?
Yes! Within 30 days of the sale of your car, you’ll be emailed a tax receipt. If your car sells for over $500, you may deduct the full selling price of the car when itemizing taxes. If your car sells for less than $500, you can deduct $499 or your car’s fair market value, whichever is less. Please consult with your tax advisor on the best way to claim your UNICEF USA car donation tax deduction.
