Car Donations

Donate your car and show your support for KCSM!

Funds from donated vehicles support quality programming on KCSM, Jazz 91. It's a great and painless way to make a tax-deductible contribution to your local public radio station!

Here's how it works:

KCSM is licensed to San Mateo County Community Colleges District whose foundation handles the sales transactions through a reputable auction house and gives us 100% of the net proceeds on a car that has been designated as a "KCSM gift". We get the support, and you get a receipt for your tax-deductible donation.

Here's what to do:
  • Call our auction firm at 1-858-602-1456 with your name, address, telephone number, year, make, and model of the vehicle, and let them you would like the proceeds to go to KCSM Jazz 91 FM.
  • A representative from the auction house will contact you within 24 hours to obtain more information about the vehicle, and if we accept it, you will be sent appropriate DMV forms to complete.
  • When you return the necessary documents, arrangements are made for the delivery of the vehicle to the auction house.
  • When you deliver the vehicle you will turn over the keys and pink slip.
  • A receipt for your donation will be sent to you.
