Other Ways to Support KLRN
You can share your appreciation for KLRN’s high-quality programming and education and outreach services in many ways. Thank you for your continued support!
Donate your car
Thinking about selling your car, boat, motorcycle, truck, or other vehicle? Donate it to KLRN instead!
Take part in KLRN’s 1-2-3 Car Donation Program and support the television programs you love on KLRN, and receive a tax deduction when you itemize your return.
How it Works
All you need is a clear title, and we'll take care of the rest, including pick–up, at no cost to you. Once your vehicle has been sold, you'll be sent a receipt for your tax records, and the sale proceeds will be donated to KLRN in your name.
To learn more about this exciting new program, complete the form here or call 866-557-6123. You’ll be connected to a representative from CARS, an organization who will work directly with you on your vehicle donation on our behalf.
What can I donate? KLRN accepts cars, trucks and recreational vehicles. When you make an automobile donation your vehicle is resold at auction and the proceeds of the sale go to KLRN. Most vehicles are accepted except those that are heavily damaged or incomplete. The KLRN 1-2-3 Car Donation program accepts automobile donations in the KLRN viewing area — 30 south central Texas counties.
Are car donations tax-deductible? Yes, your donation qualifies as a charitable deduction on your federal income tax return, because KLRN is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
How do I donate a car? Call 1-866-KLRN-123 to make your donation. Have ready: the title to your car location of your car general condition of your car This information assists the tow company in scheduling appropriate towing arrangements.
My car does not run. Can I still donate it? The location and the condition of your car determine whether it can be accepted for resale.
Will you pick up my car? KLRN will send a tow truck to pick up your vehicle. The towing company will need: the car keys the title to your car your signature authorizing the tow A tow receipt will be given to you by the driver—verifying that your vehicle was received on behalf of KLRN.
How do I estimate the value of my car? The IRS allows you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax form for the fair market value of your donated vehicle. The condition of your car affects the fair market value. If the fair market value of the vehicle is $5000 or greater you must file the IRS Form 8283 with your tax return. Access the form on the IRS Forms Site.
Take a look at these free publications: Kelley Blue Book: Use estimate to substantiate fair market value NADA Guides: Use estimate to substantiate fair market value of your classic car or recreational vehicle. “Determining the Value of Donated Property” IRS Publication 561: How to determine the value of your donation “Noncash Charitable Contributions”
