Vehicle Donation

Donating your car is easy! Get started here or call 844.469.2411 (844-IOWA-411).

Did you know IPR receives over 700 donated vehicles per year? These broken down or unwanted vehicles bring in over $250,000 a year for IPR!

If you have a vehicle you're ready to part with, skip the hassle and donate it to IPR! Donating a car is fast, easy and secure. Iowa Public Radio accepts any vehicle - running or not - including cars, trucks, boats, RVs, motorcycles, and more. Your vehicle is towed free of charge, and the donation is eligible for a tax deduction.

And this month, your vehicle donation will unlock even more for IPR. When 60 listeners start a vehicle donation in April, we'll unlock a bonus $10,000 gift from long time listeners in Grinnell.

All you need to get started are the keys, the current registration and the title. Start your donation at the Vehicle Donation Page.

In addition to supporting the programs you love, your gift will make you a member of IPR (if you're not already!). The proceeds from your donation will fuel the news and music you rely on and love — it's an easy way to make a big difference.

We work with our public radio colleagues at Charitable Adult Rides & Services (CARS) to ensure that your donation delivers the highest possible revenue to IPR and that your experience is convenient, efficient and feels good.

If you have any questions about the vehicle donation process, please don't hesitate to reach out to our vehicle experts at 855-2PRADIO (855-277-2346).
