Car Donation page

Welcome to Michigan Radio's Car Donation page.

When you donate a vehicle to Michigan Radio, you can actually turn your old car, truck or boat into the programs and news you rely on and love. In addition to supporting your favorite public radio shows, we’ll tow your vehicle for free, and your donation may be tax deductible. 

Donating a car is fast, easy and secure. Michigan Radio accepts most any vehicle - running or not - including cars, trucks, RVs, motorcycles....and even boats. We work with our non-profit colleagues at CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) to ensure that your donation delivers the highest possible return and that your experience is simple and convenient.

Keeping Donors Safe

Despite the coronavirus pandemic, our vehicle donation program is open and operational. We want to assure you that we take the health and safety of our donors, drivers and associates seriously, as we continue to monitor the situation.  You can complete almost the entire process from the comfort and safety of your home. We are still able to pick up your vehicle; however, please be aware that there may be some delays in scheduling your pickup. We have also instructed our drivers to practice safe and secure interactions with donors to minimize contact during your vehicle pickup.

A listener from Jackson recently donated a classic 1941 Plymouth Special Deluxe sedan to Michigan Radio. Touted as the "One For `41" and "America's Low Cost Luxury Car," this car came with Powermatic shifting, an almost heart-shaped grille and a “Fashion-Tone Interior.”

This 1941 Plymouth is the oldest car ever donated to the station’s vehicle donation program. It will start its next act supporting the programs that make Michigan Radio special.

In celebration of Mother's Day, we wanted to share a heartwarming story about a mom and her daughter--and the car and love of public radio that united them.

I am honoring my mother by donating our car to Michigan Radio.

My mother, Beverly Decker, was the one who bought this Toyota Camry brand new in 2002. She was so proud of it.  Over the years, she slowly lost the ability to walk and drive. She generously gave this car to us and I drove it for 10 years. I commuted to work in the Camry and always felt safe.
