Donate Your Vehicle to AKRNA

Wondering what to do with your used car or truck?  

Why not consider donating your old vehicle to Antakarana Co-Creation Learning Project (A.K.R.N.A), a nonprofit project of the United Charitable Programs (UCP)?  It’s a great way to support kids to get better education while getting rid of the hassle of cleaning, repairing, and selling it yourself.  Besides, it is convenient, easy, and may qualify you for a tax deduction.  A.K.R.N.A accepts donations of most vehicles.

And best of all, your donation of a used car or truck will make a big difference in supporting A.K.R.N.A. because YOUR DONATION benefits kids TODAY, and society tomorrow!   :-)

Why not donate your vehicle today?  All you need to do is to complete our simple online donation form from our car donation partner, Vehicles for Charity, or call 1-866-628-2277, and we’ll take care of the rest.

We will pick up your vehicle, arrange to have your donation towed, and provide you with a tax-deductible receipt, all at no charge to you!



For your convenience, answers to the most frequently asked questions about vehicle donation are provided below.

What can I donate?

You can donate most any vehicle, including cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. They do not have to be currently running. Your vehicle donation will be sold at an auction or to salvage depending on condition. 


Is my donation tax-deductible?

Yes, Antakarana Co-creation Learning Project (AKRNA) is a fiscally sponsored non-profit program of the United Charitable Programs (UCP), a registered 501 (c) (3) public charity.  All donations to AKRNA qualify as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return.


What do I need to donate my car?

The title to the car must be in your name. We will also need some information about where the car is located and the condition of the car. This will assist us in scheduling appropriate towing arrangements.


Will you pick up my car?

A towing company will call you to schedule the pick-up of your vehicle. You will need to give the driver the keys to the vehicle as well as your signed title.   You will be instructed on how to sign the title. The driver may have you sign some paperwork authorizing the tow. The driver will leave you a tow receipt showing that he/she collected the vehicle on behalf of Antakarana Co-Creation Learning Project – AKRNA via Vehicles for Charity.


How is the value of my car determined?

The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form equal to the amount the vehicle sells for at auction unless it sells for less than $500. If your vehicle sells for less than $500 you may deduct no more than $500. If your vehicle sells for more than $500, you will need to include the IRS form 1098C. Vehicles for Charity will supply this documentation after your vehicle sells. We recommend you consult your tax advisor with questions about your deduction.


The United Charitable Programs (UCP) project, Antakarana Co-creation Learning Project (AKRNA), has partnered with Vehicles For Charity to process donated vehicles. Just call 1 866 628 2277 they will answer any other questions you may have and make arrangements to pick up your donation.
