Kidney Cars Hawaii

Thank you very much for your interest in joining our “Kidney Cars” Family! The Kidney Cars program is a special way to fight kidney disease by donating your vehicle to help further our programs and services here in Hawaii.

Tax Deduction: As of January 1, 2005, the maximum tax deduction you can receive without needing notification of the Gross Selling Price (GSP) of the vehicle is $500. If the vehicle sells for more than $500 and you itemize on your taxes then you may claim the GSP as the deduction. NKFH will provide notification of the tax deduction within 30 days of the sale. NKFH cannot guarantee any selling price for any vehicle. It may take up to 60 days or longer to sell your vehicle and for you to receive notification of your tax deduction.

*Every donor will receive sale notification. Even if the selling price is less than $500, you may still take the maximum tax deduction of $500.

Did you know that Hawaii’s kidney failure rate is 30% higher than the national average? Chances are good that you know someone with kidney disease or are even afflicted yourself. Whether or not you decide to donate your vehicle, please read about the early warning signs of kidney failure and ask for a free kidney screening. Knowing the early warning signs just might help prevent kidney failure in your life or the life of someone you love.

The warning signs are:

  • Burning or difficulty during urination
  • More frequent urination, particularly at night
  • Passage of blood-appearing urine
  • Puffiness around eyes, swelling of hands and feet
    (especially in children)
  • Pain in small of back just below ribs
    (not aggravated by movement)
  • High Blood Pressure

With over 200,000 Hawaii residents at serious risk or afflicted by kidney disease, your vehicle donation helps us reach out to thousands of families each year. As we continue to increase and expand our programs and services that focus on preventing kidney disease and providing support for our kidney patients and their families, every donation makes a difference.

You may have heard that tax laws have changed, but one thing remains the same — DONATING YOUR CAR IS STILL A GREAT WAY TO GET A GREAT TAX DEDUCTION. Here at the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii, we care about our donors and we are taking every step necessary to get you the best tax deduction possible.

We look forward to hearing from you and thank you again for supporting the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii.
