We understand that need and strive to provide a live answer every time because we want to talk to you personally to let you know how important your choice to donate to Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute is to us.

What paperwork do I need to donate my vehicle?

If you do not have title papers you can apply for a replacement title before donating your vehicle. Please visit the Department of Motor Vehicles in your state to obtain the necessary forms before donating or give us a call and we can assist.
How do I release the liability of my donated vehicle?
On the day we receive your vehicle, our insurance provides coverage. We will handle all transfer documents according to State Department of Vehicle Services guidelines, and provide you with receipts and information for your tax deduction.
