Vehicle donations

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

Or call 1-855-825-2224

How does my vehicle donation help the station?

When you donate your vehicle to KBACH, it’s sold at a private auction and the sale proceeds are sent on to the station. These funds directly support the classical music you hear on KBACH.

What are the advantages for me?

You become a member of KBACH and will receive membership perks like:

Loyalty Card
Loyalty Card discounts at Valley businesses

Movie Club
Movie Club offers to attend movie debuts & film screenings

Ticket giveaways
Public Radio Weekly e-newsletter with exclusive ticket giveaways

You will 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 KBACH picks up your vehicle!

If your vehicle sells for less than $500, you can write off its fair market value or $500 (whichever is less) on your tax return. And if it sells for more, you can write off the full sale price of your vehicle. 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) 825-2224 or fill out this form. 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!
