Vehicle Donation


Donating your car is easy! Get started here or call 844.469.2411 (844-IOWA-411).

COVID-19 Note: Our vehicle donation program is currently open and operational. Drivers picking up vehicles for donation are practicing safe and secure interactions, including minimizing contact. 

When you donate a vehicle to benefit Iowa Public Radio, you actually turn your car into the news and music you rely on and love. Donate your vehicle, and we'll use the proceeds to support your favorite programs like Morning Edition and Talk of Iowa, plus the great variety of music you hear daily on IPR. This gift makes a difference at Iowa Public Radio.

Donating a car is fast, easy and secure. Iowa Public Radio accepts any vehicle - running or not - including cars, trucks, boats, RVs, motorcycles, and more. We work with our public radio colleagues at Charitable Adult Rides & Services (CARS) to ensure that your donation delivers the highest possible revenue to Iowa Public Radio and that your experience is convenient, efficient and even fun. Start your donation at the Vehicle Donation Page.

In addition to supporting the programs you love, your gift will make you a member of Iowa Public Radio. Your vehicle is towed free of charge, and the donation is eligible for a tax deduction.

If you have any questions about the vehicle donation process, please don't hesitate to reach out to our vehicle experts at 855-2PRADIO (855-277-2346).
