Donate Your Car for Good

Kidney Car is one of the largest car donation programs in Canada. Cars are recycled in an environmentally manner, or in some cases, may be resold at public auction. Proceeds from the program go directly to our mission to ease the burden of kidney disease.
By donating your car to Kidney Car, you get:

  • free tow;
  • a tax receipt worth a minimum of $300;
  • appreciation from kidney patients who will benefit from your donation;
  • a sense of satisfaction of having done something good.
