Vehicle Donations

Are you thinking about selling your car, boat, motorcycle, truck, or other vehicle? Save yourself a headache and donate it to KJZZ instead!

Simply call (855) 565-5599 or fill out this form!

How does my vehicle donation help the station?

When you donate your vehicle to KJZZ, it’s sold at a private auction and the sale proceeds are sent on to the station. These funds directly support KJZZ’s local community reporting in Phoenix and NPR coverage of national stories.

What are the advantages for me?

First of all, you’ll avoid the stressful process of selling your vehicle: advertising, getting your vehicle appraised, communicating with potential buyers, paying for registration/inspection/insurance/repairs, and dealing with taxes after the sale is closed. You won’t even have to pay for the tow truck when KJZZ picks up your vehicle!

You’ll also get to write off the value of your vehicle on your tax return. We’ll mail you an IRS Form 1098-C, “Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes,” within one month of the sale stating the amount of gross proceeds received for your vehicle, provided it sold for more than $500. Otherwise the receipt provided to you at the time of pickup will serve as your tax receipt. 

How do I go about donating my vehicle?

Simply call (855) 565-5599 or fill out the form to the right. It really is that simple!

As long as you have a signed, clean title, you can donate nearly any vehicle you own to the station—and we’ll take care of everything for you!
