KEXP Vehicle Donation Program


Interested in donating your vehicle to a non-profit organization like KEXP? It's easy to make a contribution that supports KEXP and keeps the music playing all year long! It doesn't matter where you live - Seattle, San Francisco or Tampa- you can donate your vehicle to support listener-powered radio at KEXP.

KEXP partners with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services), a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, to accept vehicle donations.

To donate a vehicle, call toll-free: 877-227-7485

A CARS Vehicle Donation Representative, on KEXP's behalf, will schedule a pickup that's convenient for you, and provide you with confirmation of your donation.

You can also donate your vehicle online or learn more about our vehicle donation partner, CARS, and the vehicle donation process by visiting


How soon will KEXP receive funds from my contribution?

Vehicles are typically sold within 6 to 8 weeks of hand-off to CARS. Once sold, CARS will send KEXP a check for your donation within 5 days of their receiving the funds from the sales company. 

Will I become a donor when I donate my vehicle?

Yes, your gift counts toward one year of KEXP donor benefits once KEXP receives a check for your donation. As noted previously, this typically occurs in 6 - 8 weeks. Our vehicle donation partner, CARS, will send an initial donor acknowledgement letter for your gift and we’ll follow up with an email acknowledgement and instructions for choosing a thank you gift if you are eligible to select one.

Does my donation qualify me for VIP Club donor benefits?

If your vehicle sells for $500 or more at auction, you will be added to the appropriate VIP Club, but you will need to register your e-mail address with the KEXP Donor Services Office at 206-520-5843 or to ensure that you are notified of VIP Club concerts.

Why haven’t I received an acknowledgment letter and/or my donor benefits yet?

Your car may not have sold yet. Most often it takes 6 to 8 weeks for a vehicle donation to be completed, but in some cases, it can take longer. Please feel free to contact the KEXP representative at CARS to check on your donation: 877-227-7485. For other questions, please contact KEXP Donor Services, or 206-520-5843.
