If You Don’t Want It – We Do!

Many Canadians believe that there are only two ways to dispose of their older, unneeded car: sell it or trade it! For 25 years, Kidney Car has provided an alternative that is a win-win for both the donor and the millions of Canadians living with kidney disease.

Kidney Car is a unique donation program developed by The Kidney Foundation of Canada that provides the traditional “feel good” rewards of giving, but also offers a tangible solution to an everyday problem.  What should I do with a car I no longer use?

When Rachel and Darryl’s Ford Ranger decided it reached the end of the road – it was an easy decision to make it a Kidney Car.

Since 2008, their trusty truck was an important means of transportation to and from Darryl’s dialysis treatments, and many hospital appointments related to his kidney transplant in 2016. “It really was a fitting legacy for our truck,” says Rachel.  “The process was easy from start to finish – and we have the knowledge that the funds raised from our vehicle donation will provide hope and support to families like ours living with kidney disease.”

“Kidney Car has recycled tens of thousands of cars over the last 25 years, and turned those unwanted vehicles into important funds to support programs and services to help the 1 in 10 Canadians living with kidney disease” explains Kidney Car Senior Program Manager David Cybulski.

Donors receive a charitable tax receipt for a minimum of $300, but often higher depending on the condition of the car and the cars are towed free of charge, usually within 48 hours, by one of our reputable Kidney Car partners.

For over 50 years, The Kidney Foundation has helped millions of Canadians affected by kidney disease. Funds raised through Kidney Car help The Kidney Foundation implement important education and prevention programs nationwide. These programs aim to help improve the well-being of those living with kidney disease and their families.
